What Horror Mega Hit Will Come from TIFF 2018?

Today is the official start of the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), which marks the unofficial beginning of “prestige movie season”! Every year, major studio and indie films vie for spots on the TIFF line-up in the hopes of garnering buzz and positive reviews to hype their releases. They’re also hoping for the kind of critical acclaim that wins films prestigious awards.

Unlike some other festivals of this caliber, TIFF always makes room for horror movies in their lineup. In recent years, TIFF has showcased films like The Grudge in 2002, Hostel in 2005,  Inside (À l’intérieur) in 2007, 2008’s The Loved Ones, Black Swan in 2009, The Lords of Salem in 2012, and Raw in 2016. Last year, TIFF screened mother!, Veronica, The Ritual (loved that movie!), Mom and Dad, and of course, Guillermo del Toro’s Oscar-winning The Shape of Water.

This year, TIFF has an impressive slate of horror movies, from the highly anticipated Halloween to quieter entries like The Wind. I can’t wait to see which ones will make a splash!  Read on to see the full line-up!

The quality of these movies varies, but there are some exciting choices here, like Nic Cage’s metal-horror Mandy and the religious-horror film Don’t Leave Home. Due to a crowded October release schedule, we also get a lot of big-name horror films this month, like sequels The Nun and The Predator. There’s also The House with a Clock in Its Walls, which might go on to become a kids’ horror classic.

Let’s get to it!
