"If you were gonna die, and you knew you were gonna die... and you could choose how... what would you choose?"

Though this blog's main focus is the films that are playing as part of the Midnight Madness program, we'll occasionally take the opportunity to bring to your attention films outside of MM which might be of interest to you. The first of these films is a film having its World Premiere in the Vanguard program, called A HORRIBLE WAY TO DIE.


A HORRIBLE WAY TO DIE is directed by Tennessee born filmmaker, Adam Wingard, who made a huge impression on the independent horror scene three years ago with his haunting film, POP SKULL. A HORRIBLE WAY TO DIE tells the story of Sarah (Amy Seimetz); a woman trying to start a new life, and a murderous ex-boyfriend (AJ Bowen) who won't let her. The film also stars writer/actor/director Joe Swanberg, and is written by Simon Barrett, the writer of Midnight Madness alumni, DEAD BIRDS.

A trailer for the film was released today, and it looks stunning. A HORRIBLE WAY TO DIE is without question, one of my top three picks of TIFF 2010.

Watch the amazing trailer!

  1. The director is from a town in Tennessee called Oak Ridge which is minutes from where Quentin Tarantino and Johnny Knoxville were born. Knoxville is also the headquarters of one of the largest cinema chains in the US. It's like some weird mini-nexus of genre film...

  3. If I had to die i guess I'd like to be in a giant robot suit fighting another giant robot and get punched into the sun.
