TAD 08 features announced

The Toronto After Dark Film Festival has announced its first 8 titles for this year (Oct. 17-24).

Two jumped out at me immediately: Red, a story about revenge starring the always wonderful Brian Cox

and Let The Right One In, a Swedish vampire film based on the novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist

If you are a Facebook member, you can see all 8 hi-res trailers here. Otherwise, g’wan over to the TAD site to watch ’em.

I attended last year and I gotta say I hadda blast. I was really impressed with this upstart fest: it was well organized, the programming was international in scope, it included short programmes as well as features, it cut a pretty wide swath of genres (horror, SF, documentary, animation, cult, musical, and unpredictable combinations thereof), and it attracted thousands of patrons who weren’t averse to a little grue. Or a lotta grue, for that matter. 😉

Plus, it dovetailed with the annual Toronto Zombie Walk! Beat that, TIFF!
