With 20 films and 29 shorts being showcased at the event – and for many, it’s their World or Canadian premiere – we are going to spotlight a film each day giving you a glimpse into some of the action, the macabre and the bloodletting that will soak our screens until the closing night gala.
Today’s spotlight: Inbred
“They came in peace. They left in pieces.” This tagline belongs to the violent black comedy Inbred – a film that could quite possibly become the cult classic of 2012.
Inbred comes courtesy of writer/director Alex Chandon (Cradle of Fear, Pervirella) and follows the misadventures of a group young offenders and their care workers who end up in the remote UK village of Mortlake. But after a freak incident with some of the local youths escalates, the visitors are soon in fight for their lives where “it’s not the case of who will survive, but what will be left of them.”
This incredibly sick and twisted tale stars Joe Hartley (Dead Man’s Shoes), James Doherty (Miranda), James Burrows (Eden Lake) and Seamus O’Neill (War Horse) in a wildly violent journey into complete and utter madness.
Director Alex Chandon writes, “I want INBRED to create in others what I felt when I watched the likes of EVIL DEAD 2 , BAD TASTE and RE-ANIMATOR for the first time as a young teenager in the mid 80's. I was joyously repulsed and knew I was watching something very heartfelt, albeit disgusting. My amazing DoP on INBRED, Ollie Downey shared my vision of making a film that would hopefully homage the style of film making of the 70's and 80's which I consider the benchmark of cinema.”
Ain’t it Cool News voted Inbred one of the Top Horror movies of the year citing “This is an absolutely fantastic tour de force in gore that’s touring the circuit now.”
And The Yorkshire Post wrote, “This one has to be seen to be believed. Shot on location in Thirsk, it proves that classic British horror is alive and twitching.”
Inbed is screening on October 19th at 9:45PM at the Bloor Cinema as part of the Toronto After Dark Film Festival. Tickets can be purchased through the box office at http://torontoafterdark.com/2012/buy-tickets/
