Hey, Toronto! Break Out Your Hockey Masks And Machetes, FRIDAY THE 13TH Hits The Big Screen Saturday!
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.
