For the 7th year, the Toronto After Dark Film Festival brings a selection of new horror, sci-fi, action and cult movies. The festival will screen 20 new feature films and 10 have just been announced. Here are our Asian picks from this year’s selections so far:
1) DEAD SUSHI (Japan)
A vacation resort faces an attack of killer sushi in this outrageous horror comedy from the same deliciously deranged Japanese filmmakers who brought you Machine Girl and Tokyo. Click here for a trailer.
2) DOOMSDAY BOOK (Korea)
Winner of Fantasia Film Festival’s Best Film Award, this trio of apocalyptic tales features the rise of sentient robots, a zombie virus outbreak and an asteroid on a fatal collision course with earth. Co-directed by acclaimed Korean filmmaker Jee-woon Kim (I Saw the Devil, The Good the Bad and the Weird, A Tale of Two Sisters). Click here for a trailer.
More films to be announced soon…35 days until the festival begins!
