Toronto is about to get bloody. Their annual film festival just announced a Midnight Madness section, among others, and it looks like we’re in for some violent fun. With the reveal of titles comes new looks at some of the films. First up we have new images of Nicolás López‘s earthquake horror film Aftershock, which follows “a hapless American tourist (Eli Roth) and his friends [who] are suddenly plunged into a living hell when a powerful earthquake rips through the coastal town of Valparaiso, Chile.
Then we have a batch of new images from the Nicolas Winding Refn-approved remake of Pusher, from Spanish director Luis Prieto, with an ensemble including Agyness Deyn, Richard Coyle, Bronson Webb and Paul Kaye. The film follows the storyline of the first (which starred Kim Bodnia and Mads Mikkelsen), concerning a newbie drug dealer that enters a spiraling ring of problems, leading him to fix them at any cost.
There’s also four images from the 26-part horror anthology The ABC’s of Death (see one here), including short films from Hobo with a Shotgun director Jason Eisener, A Serbian Film‘s Srdjan Spasojevic, Timecrimes helmer Nacho Vigalondo and Kill List’s Ben Wheatley, whose Sightseers is also premiering at the festival. Lastly, we’ve got two images from the next Rob Zombie horror film, The Lords of Salem, which “follows a Salem hard-rock radio DJ (Sherri Moon Zombie) whose playing of a sinister heavy metal song awakens a coven of witches from the 17th century.” Check out some below and more on the next page, beginning with Aftershock.
