North American Premiere. Director – Péter Bergendy
After surviving a near death experience during World War I, Tomás, a young photographer, ends up taking pictures of the dead and being drawn towards the paranormal. It’s not long before a young girl invites him to investigate her small village, which is being afflicted by a series of ghoulish hauntings. Billed as Hungary’s first ever true horror film, POST MORTEM is definitely one of the spookiest films in the Toronto After Dark lineup this year!


Director – Christopher Donaldson
This tense, survivalist siege horror gives a thrilling update to the John Carpenter cult classic, ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13, complete with a scintillating synth score! After their ambulance crashes into a ditch in the forest, a group of survivors led by Melina, a young Inuit paramedic, find themselves surrounded by a mysterious group of brutal killers intent on their deaths.


Canadian Premiere. Director – Adam Stilwell
In this terrifyingly claustrophobic and psychological horror thriller, Sara (NARCOS’s Andrea Londo) wakes from a coma to discover a life in a house, with a husband (X-MEN’s Shawn Ashmore) and a maid (Jane Badler, 1983’s “V” mini-series) she doesn’t remember. As her amnesia begins to fade, the chilling truth to her homelife begins to be revealed. A creepy treat from the executive producer of GET OUT, accompanied by a haunting score, composed by Joseph Bishara (MALIGNANT, THE CONJURING films, the INSIDIOUS films). Alas we have no official trailer for this brand new film, but trust us, it’s awesome!
