TIFF’s Midnight Madness is going to be a rowdy one, folks. The full slate has just been announced, and it’s going to be a big year of crazy, off-the wall horror and genre films descending upon the late-night crowd. Highlights include the world premiere of David Gordon Green’s highly anticipated Halloween, as well as The Predator to kick off the 10 film program.

“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.”
