TIFF ’08: Director’s Cut of ‘Deadgirl’?

Last night Deadgirl played the “Midnight Madness” portion of the Toronto International Film Festival where the 1200 seat crowd witnessed the world premiere of Marcel Sarmiento and Gadi Harel’s film, which ended in heavy applause. At the Q+A for the coming-of-age horror film, Sarmiento told the audience that he intends to one day release a director’s cut of the film, which could feature more “intense” fun. We chatted with the directors earlier that night who told us that over 20 minutes were trimmed from the original cut, which could one day see the light of day via DVD or Blu-ray. They also joked that we might get to see some audition tapes as an extra feature. The film is still looking for distribution.
