Toronto After Dark: Here I Come!

HorrorBlips: vote it up!


The fates have intervened! I received notification early this morning that my press accreditation for the Toronto After Dark film festival is approved. At the least, this means I will be covering the Zombie Appreciation Night (August 14th) screenings of DOGHOUSE and EVIL IN A TIME OF HEROES. At the most, I hope to be there for all the films on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.

To get a taste of the types of unique films Toronto After Dark brings to its audiences,  check out my coverage of last year's Zombie Appreciation Night.
