Toronto After Dark: In Their Skin – Jeremy Power Regimbal

  In most cases, home invasion movies have a way of getting under my skin more than other horror or thriller films, just because they are much more personal to me.  Anyone who’s ever come home to find that someone else has been in their house – or is perhaps still there – knows that the…

Toronto After Dark – Sushi Girl – Kern Saxton

  I almost feel like I should apologize to everyone involved with Sushi Girl, because I am not sure that my writing is anywhere near good enough to describe how freaking amazing this film is!  Tim turned to me the moment the end credits hit the screen and proclaimed it his favourite of the festival,…

Toronto After Dark – My Amityville Horror – Eric Walter

  This documentary was one of the films I was most looking forward to seeing at Toronto After Dark this year, and while it was a little different than I’d expected going in, it gave me far more than I’d dared hope before the end credits rolled! Based on the events of the most famous…

Toronto After Dark: Grave Encounters 2 – John Poliquin

Toronto After Dark – [Rec] 3: Genesis – Paco Plaza

So, let’s get this out of the way first: I am one of the sorry souls who hasn’t seen either of the first two Rec movies.  I know, I know.  I remember missing the first one, somehow, and then decided not to see the second one until I’d seen the first one…and there you go. …

Toronto After Dark – Crave – Charles de Lauzirika

  I was looking forward to this one in large part because it was described as a crime thriller with Ron Perlman.  Or, something like that.  Ron Perlman is really the only descriptive term I paid attention to because, as we say, “Who doesn’t love Ron Perlman?”  I also adore me some Eddie Furlong whenever…
