Toronto announced its Midnight Madness section of 10 genre films today, which features the world premiere of Sacha Baron "Ali G" Cohen's "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazazkhstan," which showed in a Cannes market preview to mixed reviews. Other world premieres include New Zealand killer-sheep film "Black Sheep," Jonathan Levine's high school slasher pic "All the Boys Love Mandy," an omnibus collection of horror films called "Trapped Ashes" from directors Joe Dante, Ken Russell, Sean Cunningham, Monte Hellman, and John Gaeta, and Nacho Cerda's Spanish ghost story "The Abandoned."
I, for one, plan to catch up with Bong Joon-ho's Korean monster movie "The Host," which already played in Cannes. Other non-world premieres include Christopher Smith's "Severance," Danish animated anti-porn revenge flick "Princess," American indie JT Petty's "S&MAN" and French director Kim Chapiron's "Sheitan."
