The Worldwide Short Film Festival is currently underway in Toronto, and horror fans will want to hit The Bloor Cinema tonight just before midnight for the “Creepy” portion of the festival’s two-night Midnight Mania programme. (The “Freaky” section, which is bizarre but not really horror, plays tomorrow night at the Royal Ontario Museum.)

The Worldwide Short Film Festival, which takes place in various venues throughout Toronto June 1 to 6, announced its program this week, including its genre-friendly Midnight Madness programming. The MM portion will be divided into two thematic segments — “Creepy,” to screen June 4; and “Freaky,” to screen June 5. (Both programs run at the Cumberland Cinema.)
Among the films to screen (in the Freaky section):
Prince of Milk (2009)
Makoto kills himself after being sexually humiliated by a pack of schoolgirls. This leads to the rising of a serial killer who makes quick and messy work of these girls. Includes a song-and-dance number apparently.
And in Creepy:
Chloe and Attie (2009)
The “10 out of 10” shout-out by Uwe Boll in the trailer is perhaps less impressive than the producers think, but Chloe and Attie, about Chloe keeping a secret hidden in the dark away from all living things, looks suitably creepy.
