October 17-24, 2008 - 8 Nights Of Thrilling New Movies!
Final Lineup of Films Announced! Includes I SELL THE DEAD starring Ron Perlman & Dominic Monaghan!
Toronto After Dark Film Festival is thrilled to announce its final lineup of new horror, sci-fi, action and cult films that will have their Toronto Theatrical Premieres at the festival this October 17-24. The final eight features revealed today include a number of exciting coups for the festival including the North American Premiere of the much-anticipated new undead comedy I SELL THE DEAD starring Ron Perlman (HELLBOY) and Dominic Monaghan (LORD OF THE RINGS).
While the box office smash hit from Thailand 4BIA (PHOBIA) should delight fans looking for a good scare, those seeking laughs should check out the wealth of comedic talent on show in the new vampire office comedy NETHERBEAST INCORPORATED starring Darrell Hammond (SNL), Jason Mewes (CLERKS) and Dave Foley (KIDS IN THE HALL). Another terrific discovery for the fest is the International Premiere of SOUTH OF HEAVEN a hyper-stylized acclaimed new crime noir film that has been compared to early Coen Brothers and David Lynch.
Sci-Fi action fans will be over the moon with the Canadian Premiere of the star-sudded dark future-set MUTANT CHRONICLES starring Thomas Jane (THE MIST), Ron Perlman (HELLBOY), Devon Aoki (SIN CITY) and John Malkovich. Also announced today is the Canadian Premiere of the Sundance Film Fest late night hit DONKEY PUNCH, found footage shocker HOME MOVIE, and 80s style zombiefest KEVIN TENNEY’S BRAIN DEAD which will be a treat for fans as the finale of the Toronto Zombie Walk! Plus some outstanding new short films from around the world will screen at Toronto After Dark, and let’s not forget a crop of kick-ass new shorts from Canadians which will be opening acts for the features!
