TIFF's Midnight Madness presents provocative slate of chilling debuts and highly anticipated thrillers

Toronto, Sep 3 (IBNS): Midnight Madness has just announced its explosive lineup of films for the 43rd Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

This year’s programme features 10 quintessential genre movies that are guaranteed to either terrorize or mesmerize.

“This year’s Midnight Madness slate promises another idiosyncratic confluence of established and emerging genre filmmakers,” said Peter Kuplowsky, Midnight Madness Programmer.

“To complement some of the buzziest provocations on the festival circuit, I have sought to curate an eccentric array of World Premieres that demonstrate the dexterity of genre cinema as a canvas for both sublime satisfaction and stunning subversion. That includes the section’s two much-anticipated sequels, The Predator and Halloween, each of which boldly and brilliantly builds upon its mythic iconography to thrilling and surprising effect.”

Kuplowsky continues to put his fearless stamp on the programme, starting with the opening film: the World Premiere of Shane Black’s The Predator, the director’s reinvention of the iconic film series.

The lineup will also feature the highly anticipated World Premiere of Halloween, directed by David Gordon Green and starring Jamie Lee Curtis.

The programme will close with the North American Premiere of Diamantino, Gabriel Abrantes and Daniel Schmidt’s bizarre, genre-bending film that fascinated audiences at Cannes earlier this year.

Midnight Madness will also present the North American Premiere of the electrifying Gaspar Noé’s Climax.

The films in this year’s lineup will feature strong performances by actors such as legendary Italian star Monica Bellucci, who plays the queen of a demonic underworld in the World Premiere of Nekrotronic, directed by Kiah Roache-Turner.

Other films include Peter Strickland’s highly anticipated In Fabric, which follows the life of a cursed dress and the Canadian Premiere of Assassination Nation, directed by Sam Levinson.

Additional World Premieres from this year’s selection will include Emma Tammi’s The Wind; The Standoff at Sparrow Creek, directed by Henry Dunham; and Vasan Bala’s The Man Who Feels No Pain, the first Indian film ever selected for the Midnight Madness programme.

The 43rd TIFF will run from September 6 to 16, 2018.
