For many horror fans, zombie movies have become too prevalent in the independent horror cinema landscape. In fact, it wouldn’t be surprising to find out that the mere mention of the subgenre makes many cringe. For whatever reason, filmmakers working with a restricted budget seem to think that their best option is to try their […]
Saturday marked the third day of Toronto After Dark 2014, and as is customary on the weekend, there were three separate screening blocks (as opposed to the standard two during the weekdays). Saturday at TADFF also usually means Zombie Appreciation Night, so you generally know that you are going to get at least two films featuring the […]
Friday was Day Two of Toronto After Dark 2014, and the theater was packed for both of the evenings screenings. HELLMOUTH had its World Premiere, ABCs OF DEATH 2 had its Toronto Premiere, and the sold out crowds were cheering and ready for both movies. It’s kind of a big deal that both of these […]
It’s that time of year again… The weather is getting chilly, the leaves are changing colors and falling from the trees, and everyone is in full Halloween mode. Fall is my favorite time of year for all of those reasons; and also because it means that Toronto After Dark is upon us.

Well, here we are… The ninth, and final, night of Toronto After Dark 2013 has officially passed, and the festival is wrapped for another year. Luckily, the festival ended on a pretty high note, with two of the best films of the batch closing things out; Cheap Thrills and Big Bad Wolves.
The penultimate night of Toronto After Dark 2013 is now behind us, and for all intents and purposes, it was a great success. The night’s movies were programmed so that they had a horror theme, and the directors of both were in the house to talk about them. As such, it wasn’t a surprise that […]
We are now about a week deep into Toronto After Dark 2013, and there are only two more nights left of the festival. As always, I’m starting to really miss my nice comfortable bed, and the thought of a homecooked meal is making me drool, but some of the festival’s most anticipated titles are still […]
In keeping with the themed nights at this year’s festival, last night was Sci-Fi night at Toronto After Dark. I was looking forward to the films because I had heard a lot of buzz around them, and for the most part, they delivered. I knew that the first screening of the night was going to […]
The 2013 Edition of Toronto After Dark Film Festival has now passed the halfway mark. Generally, Monday night is a bit lighter because folks are exhausted from the last four nights of missing sleep, drinking, and trying to talk over loud music and people at the pub. However, last night featured a solid pair of […]
Sunday at TADFF is always a tough day. Generally speaking, from a reporting perspective, it means that you’ve been out until all hours of the morning for the last three nights, probably imbibed a bit more than necessary, lost a lot of sleep, and then spent all of your free time writing reviews, editing interviews, […]
As is customary at TADFF, Saturday was Zombie Appreciation Night, which meant that the day’s programming consisted of two zombie-related films along with the International shorts program. Though I think zombies are by and large a bit played out, I still look forward to the night every year at the festival because they tend to […]
Day two of the 2013 edition of the Toronto After Dark Film Festival has now come and gone. Dubbed “Insect Night,” the night’s programming consisted of a pair of movies where the (arguably) main star was a bug. The idea of “theme nights” is one that has become more prevalent at the festival over the […]
Giant insect movies have been around for the better part of the last century. There’s just something about those tiny things that creep so many of us out running amok and squashing us for a change that seems to speak to moviegoers. When you couple that notion with the recent public adoration of made-for-cable campfests […]
It’s that time of year again… The leaves are changing color and falling to the ground, every single product has a pumpkin scented/flavored option, the stores are filled with monster masks and skeletal decorations, and horror fans all over are rejoicing and counting the days until our version of Christmas; Halloween. While I love all […]

Hey everyone! Jeff here with a very special post… This one isn’t a movie review (at least not in the classic sense), nor is it in any way related to a podcast or a film festival… Nope, this post is my contribution to the Liberal Dead Staff’s “Movies To Watch Around Halloween” series.
