Toronto After Dark 2011: Final Set of Feature Film Titles Announced!


The final set of feature film titles for this years Toronto After Dark Film Festival and I'm thrilled to see some supernatural films in the line up including haunted hotel The Innkeepers and Absentia. I'm also really excited to hear about vampire film Midnight Son is in the mix this year, I've had my eye on that one for a while! More creatures are added to the mix with the creation of them with Manborg - because who doesn't want to be cyborg?

Wilderness settings are abundant with Canadian film The Corridor and UK flick A Lonely Place To Die featuring a group of friends 'out there' and things go awry. Gotta love things going awry - at least in film. Or what about trying to tame what's from the wilderness? That's what The Woman is all about. But the one I can't wait for is wilderness set is Walk of the Dead following American and Finnish soldiers who find a secret in the Russian forest, and my Baltic blood brims with excitement as this selection is a World Premiere and coming to us from Lithuania for it's World Premiere!

Want to be the very first to see a hot new genre flick? The new world premieres in the line up include not only Walk of the Dead but also the aptly named VS. which pitches superheroes vs villains and I'm really excited to see this one starring Lucas Till who was fantastic as Havoc in X-Men: First Class earlier this year. And rounding out the titles comes the craziest title with Some Guy Who Likes To Kill People. That one has got to be crazy.

Film schedule and shorts are to be announced this week, but until then here is a look on the details for the added 10 titles to this years roster.
