The Toronto International Film Festival's “Midnight Madness” slate celebrates its 25th Anniversary this year, and among the titles premiering is Eli Roth's highly-anticipated jungle horror epic The Green Inferno, as well as the World Premiere of Lucky McKee & Chris Sivertson's All Cheerleaders Die.
Toronto's Ryerson Theatre will host another round of genre entries during TIFF's run from September 5th through 15th, and they've announced the full lineup of Midnight Madness screenings, almost all of which are world premieres.
The horror comedy All Cheerleaders Die, from the directing team of Lucky McKee (May, The Woman) and Chris Sivertson (I Know Who Killed Me), will kick off the Midnight Madness schedule. The Green Inferno, Roth's homage to controversial Italian shockers like Ruggero Deodato's 1980 Cannibal Holocaust, centers on a group of college students on a humanitarian mission to save a tribe in the Amazon jungle, only to discover that that tribe still practices cannibalism – and the kids are on the menu.
Also in the lineup is the body-horror film Afflicted, backwoods alien-abduction shocker Almost Human, the occult thriller Oculus, Hitoshi Matsumoto's (Big Man Japan) darkly kinky comedy R100, the Chinese vampire tribute Rigor Mortis, Rammbock director Marvin Kren's nature-gone-bad thriller The Station, and the bloody black comedy Why Don’t You Play in Hell? from Suicide Club's Sion Sono.
