Out of all of the events that happen throughout the year, the one that I look forward to the most is the Toronto International Film Festival, which hosts the epic 10-day event “Midnight Madness.” Midnight Madness – the genre fest that has premiered High Tension, Inside, Martyrs and many more – continues to provide an eccentric mix of the weird and the wonderful, the gory and the gruesome. This year, late-night film-goers can expect to have their senses riveted by crazed animation, femme-tastic b-movie mayhem, monsters galore, a possessed cheerleader, exhilarating martial arts and more! The 34th TIFF runs September 10 to 19, 2009 and we’ve got the entire Midnight Madness line-up. Dig on it inside and prepared to get excited! Get your tickets now before they sell out.
The Midnight Madness Package is $156.51, and available to students and seniors for $100 (prices do not include GST, building fund fee and service charges).

Jennifer’s Body tells the story of small town high school student Jennifer (Megan Fox) who is possessed by a hungry demon and transitions from being “high school evil”–gorgeous (and doesn’t she know it), stuck up and ultra-attitudinal–to the real deal: evil/evil. The glittering beauty becomes a pale and sickly creature jonesing for a meaty snack, and guys who never stood a chance with the heartless babe, take on new luster in the light of her insatiable appetite. Meanwhile, Jennifer’s best friend, Needy (Amanda Seyfried), long relegated to living in Jennifer’s shadow, must step-up to protect the town’s young men, including her nerdy boyfriend Chip (Johnny Simmons). Written and executive produced by Oscar
