Toronto After Dark: War of the Dead Joins Final 10 Films

Yesterday, Toronto After Dark revealed the final ten films for its 2011 festival lineup running Oct 20-27. Aside from the first eight films I spotlighted earlier this month, which included zombie movies Deadheads and Exit Humanity, Toronto After Dark announced it will be hosting the world premiere of Lithuanian zombie flick War of the Dead, by director Marko Makilaasko.




The festival will also include screenings of these other exciting genre films:
