On September 23rd, 2010 the Toronto Screamfest will be taking over the Fox Theatre for its second year! Hosted by Actress/Model Veronika London and sponsored by Anchor Bay Entertainment, Film Army and SKG Films, this year is shaping up to be bigger and better than last. Headlining the fest this year is Adam Green's 'Frozen' along with a solid line up of featured shorts and two films from local first-time film makers:
"Done Like Dinner" Directed by Tobias Kiel Two would-be robbers stumble upon a house where a lonely man resides.
"Case Study" Directed by Torin Langen After witnessing her mother being killed by her father, Stacy spirals into a cycle of self-mutilation and violence.
"Expired Poetry" Directed by Chris Lawson A depressed teen discovers the root of his feelings when a device is found inside of him that prevents him from feeling any positive emotion.
