Apparently director Alexandre Courtes’ The Incident is pretty hardcore. IFC Midnight bought the rights to the film after several people fainted during its “Midnight Madness” screening in Toronto.
*EDIT – The Deadline blurb below contains a potential spoiler. So steer clear if you want to remain ultra-pure.
Per Deadline, “The Incident, the Alexandre Courtes-directed drama that screened this morning in the Midnight Madness category, is clearly not for the squeamish. I’m told that two moviegoers fainted and an ambulance was called. The movie is about three struggling musicians who moonlight as cooks in a high security insane asylum. When a storm shuts down the security system, the cells are unlocked and dangerous inmates run wild. Apparently, one person fainted when one of the cooks was tied to a stove top and burned alive.”
The film stars Rupert Evans, Kenny Doughty, Unax Ugalde, Dave Legeno, Anna Skellern, Richard Brake, Eric Godon, Joseph Kennedy and Marcus Garvey.
With IFC Midnight behind it I assume we’ll see a stateside release soon.
