As the ninth edition of the Toronto After Dark Film Festival approaches, I conferred with two other ScreenAnarchy men-about-Toronto, Kurt Halfyard and Jason Gorber, and we came up with our top nine must-see films of this year's festival, which kicks off on Thursday, October 16. It proved to be a challenge because the lineup has so many good entries this year; every title is worth checking out. 

With the exception of Hellmouth, which will have its World Premiere, and Why Horror?, which will have its Canadian Premiere during After Dark, some of these we have seen ourselves. Others were caught at other festivals on the circuit by other ScreenAnarchy writers. And we deem that all are worth your time this year.

We will see you After Dark. 

(As we have been compiling our list of Must-See's, a number of these shows are selling out - head on over to the Toronto After Dark site and get your tickets!!! TADFF will also have rush lines forming one hour before any of the sold out screenings)

Housebound

Believe everything you have read or heard about this film. Don't believe the hype? Then believe Sir Peter Jackson. Housebound is the perfect blend of scares and laughs. This Kiwi horror flick has been ruling the festival circuit all Summer long and now it is time to bring those scares and laughs to Toronto. There are few things more worrisome than being stuck at home, literally, and you think that there might be someone or something in the house with you. Something malevolent. Housebound is the perfect way to open up this year's festival! - Andrew Mack (This screening is SOLD OUT)
