The Toronto After Dark Film Festival returns to the newly renovated Bloor Hot Docs Cinema this year, opening with two highly anticipated entries, the Irish horror comedy Grabbers, screening at 6:45, and The Soska Sisters’ blackly comic American Mary (as seen above).

As I’m about to head out the door to see Paranormal Activity 4 (review tomorrow), The DLB will have to cut and paste each summary:

Toronto After Dark returns to The Bloor Cinema tonight for the final installment of its summer series. First up, at 7 pm, is music video director Joseph Kahn’s Detention. The Hunger Games‘ Josh Hutcherson stars in this horror comedy about a killer stalking the halls of Grizzly Lake, and reviews have been surprisingly positive.

Next up, at 9:45pm is V/H/S. A found footage anthology film that scared the shit out of Sundance audiences, it sees a group of thieves screening a series of disturbing videotapes during the search for a piece of rare footage. Directors on the film include David Bruckner, Glenn McQuaid, Ti West, Chad Villella, Justin Martinez, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, Nicholas Tecosky, Simon Barrett and Tyler Gillett.

RE-MASTERED “JAWS” PLAYS TIFF BELL LIGHTBOX IN TORONTO

For all those Torontonians (or Southern Ontarians) who have only ever seen Jaws on video or DVD, get yourself to the TIFF Bell Lightbox ASAP to experience Steven Spielberg’s classic horror show in all its digitally remastered glory. The theatre is showing the version of the film being released on Blu-ray August 14, and it looks and sounds amazing, having had itself digitally scrubbed.

I attended the press screening sitting beside Jason from FilmFest.ca who basically said he were about to see God onscreen, and he was right. Show times and info is available here.

EXCLUSIVE: WILL FERRELL TALKS HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS

Posted in Gore, Interviews, Movies, News, Witches with tags , , , , , , on March 16, 2012 by darklordbunnykins

The Dark Lord Bunnykins recently chatted with the comic genius who is Will Ferrell regarding his brilliant new comedy Casa de mi Padre, which you should all go see.

During my researches, I realized that Ferrell is a producer on Dead Snow director Tommy Wirkola’s English-language debut, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, which casts Gemma Arterton and Jeremey Renner as the titular fairytale survivors fifteen years after their encounter with the witch and now working as, well, witch hunters.

 

What was it like working with Tommy?

He’s obviously really smart. We loved his movie (Dead Snow) and thought there’s someone here with a lot of talent, and when he pitched this idea of the fairytale of Hansel and Gretel and kind of putting it on its ear so to speak and making them these assassins, we just thought that was a great reinvention of that whole thing. And he just had a great take on how you could inject that world with Metallica and make it this crazy kind of badass action-adventure, and we thought that is grounds for a potential kind of series in a way. And it just felt clever and imaginative and something that we were excited to get behind.

 

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters comes out Jan. 11, 2013.
