Hey, Toronto! Sharpen Up Your Razor Gloves, Twitch Presents A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET On The Big Screen Saturday!
With the exception of Friday The 13th - which rolls out for a midnight screening December 29th - all shows run at 10pm every Saturday night from now through the end of the year. Visit the official TIFF site for full details and to order tickets!The one-two punch of Tobe Hooper's The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and John Carpenter's megahit Halloween in the 1970s put a new face to American horror movies. While previously the genre had its share of tortured, sympathetic anti-heroes (the Frankenstein Monster, the Wolf Man), this new breed of monster was a hero because of his villainy -- and the more gleefully he set about his gruesome work, the better. Michael Myers, Jason Voorhees, Freddy Krueger, Leatherface, Chucky, Pinhead -- the names have become legend. Birth of a Villain takes us back to the nightmarish beginnings of these modern horror icons.
