Midnight Madness has been going on for 25 years at the Toronto International Film Festival and has hosted such directors as Quentin Tarantino, George A. Romero, John Carpenter, Dario Argento, Eli Roth, Rob Zombie, Don Coscarelli, Richard Linklater, Peter Jackson, Barry Levinson, Ben Wheatley, James Gunn, and Bong Joon-ho.

“Since its 1988 launch, the Midnight Madness programme emerged as a touchstone of cinematic shock, satiating the adventurous palate of bloodthirsty cinephiles from all over the world,” stated Colin Geddes, International Programmer for the Festival. “When the witching hour strikes and the human brain starts slipping into dream mode, the Ryerson Theatre will once again serve up a feast of phantasmagorical characters and jaw-dropping scenes, playing host to bizarre biological monstrosities, ruthless dominatrix gangs, paranormal mirrors, and the hijinks of supernatural cheerleaders.”

Carrying on the tradition of being a global showcase the 2013 edition features films from USA, Japan, Hong Kong, and Austria.  Receiving »
