Readers of this blog know of my love for genre films, and films in the Midnight Madness section have been among my Top Picks from the last several festivals in Toronto including The Abandoned, All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, Severance, Diary of the Dead, Acolytes, Deadgirl, Daybreakers, Jennifer's Body, Survival of the Dead, and The Loved Ones. "From the streets of Hong Kong to a post-apocalyptic, vampire-plagued United States, from a town run by Kung Fu killers to the oil fields of Alberta, this year’s Midnight Madness selection will take audiences into worlds that are sure to excite, shock and thrill,” said TIFF programmer Colin Geddes.
Here is the complete lineup and schedule. All screenings are held at the Ryerson Theatre:

Bunraku -- Guy Moshe, USA
In a world with no guns, a mysterious drifter (Josh Hartnett), a young samurai and a bartender (Woody Harrelson) plot revenge against a ruthless leader (Ron Perlman) and his army of thugs, headed by nine diverse and deadly assassins. This visually stunning film is filled with uniquely choreographed action sequences of a new style that melds east with west and old school with new. The film also stars Demi Moore.
