I think the most exciting title playing in the Midnight Madness portion of the Toronto International Film Festival (from Sep. 4-14) is Jonas Govaerts’ Cub, which looks like a group of scouts get hunted down.
Set to World Premiere, “Young, imaginative 12-year-old Sam heads off to camp with his Cub Scouts pack. In the woods, he stumbles upon a strange tree house and a masked, feral child. When his leaders ignore his warnings about the mysterious boy, Sam starts to feel increasingly isolated from the pack, and convinced a terrible fate awaits them all.”
Check out some impressive first images from the film, ones that lead me to believe this is this year’s dark horse title.
