TONIGHT: GRABBERS and AMERICAN MARY Open Toronto After Dark 2012

It's that time of year again when it's good to have no life because you'll have all the time in the world to see ever single one of the awesome horror, sci-fi, action, and cult movies in store for you at the 2012 Toronto After Dark Film Festival (Oct 18-26).
Returning to the newly christined Bloor Hot Docs Cinema (506 Bloor Street W), Toronto After Dark begins today with a gala opening night screening of blood and monsters.

The night begins with the Toronto Premiere of the Irish monster film GRABBERS.

SHOWTIME: Oct 18, 6.45 PM at Bloor Cinema (506 Bloor Street W)
Door Tickets from: 5.15pm
Seating from: 6.15pm. 
TICKETS: $14 Regular, $24 Double Feature Ticket with AMERICAN MARY at 9.45 pm.

In Grabbers, a horror comedy from director Jon Wright (Tormented), a sea-side town is besieged by tentacled aquatic beasties with an allergy to alcohol, so the only way to stay off their menu is to drink, drink, and drink some more. 

From possibly alien monstrosities to the freaky world of blackmarket body modification, Toronto After Dark welcomes you to the Canadian Premiere of the new film by the infamous Soska Sisters: AMERICAN MARY

SHOWTIME: Oct 18, 9:45 PM at Bloor Cinema (506 Bloor Street W)
Door Tickets from: 5.15pm, Seating from: 9.15pm. 
TICKETS: $14 Regular, $24 Double Feature with GRABBERS - OPENING GALA FILM at 6.45 pm.

Sister directing team Jen & Sylvia Soska (Dead Hooker in a Trunk) return with American Mary in which a disillusioned medical student (Katherine Isabelle of Ginger Snaps) decides to ply her trade in the shady underworld of unregulated surgeries and body modification. How can the results be anything but bloody and horrifying?
