Lost Episode Fest Toronto 2016 Lineup Announced: Press Release: "July 1, 2016: Lost Episode Fest Toronto (LEFT) is ecstatic to officially unveil its schedule of killer films for 2016! This year is our biggest festival yet, showcasing 50 films, including shorts and features. Our lineup includes a mix of the most critically acclaimed and eagerly awaited new genre films (horror, sci-fi, animation and more) from this year’s international film festival circuit, as well as indie gems yet to be seen in Canada. These 10 new screenings will all have their Toronto, Canadian or International Theatrical Premieres hosted exclusively at the festival’s 4th Annual Edition this August 5th-7th, 2016 at the Carlton Cinema, our licensed festival home in the heart of downtown Toronto.


THE GREASY STRANGLER (Comedy/Horror/Thriller) (USA) Toronto Premiere! “2016’s MOST WTF FILM” according to The Daily Beast, this practical effects disco-obsessed creature comedy left Sundance audiences in shock and awe, and had critics calling it a “playful oasis of filth and depravity” (The Guardian); “an exercise in juvenile scatology that’s almost awesomely pure in its determination to annoy.” (Variety); “Disgusting, deviant and pleasurably weird at heart” (Indiewire). From the mega-producing team most likely to combine to form Voltron: Elijah Wood (LORD OF THE RINGS) and Ben Wheatley (KILL LIST). This is the cult film of the year that you do not want to miss! Trailer: https://youtu.be/kcGXOAKceRg

UNDER THE SHADOW (Horror) (IRAN/UK/JORDAN) Toronto Premiere! “The feminist horror film that scared Sundance silly” (The Guardian). As a mother and daughter struggle to cope with the terrors of the post-revolution, war-torn Tehran of the 80s, a mysterious evil begins to haunt their home. Another Sundance favourite critics are calling “The first great horror movie of the year” (Indiewire) and that had our festival programmers sleeping with the lights on. Trailer: https://youtu.be/kfnVAO3huD8

DAYLIGHT’S END (Action/Horror/Sci-Fi) (USA) Canadian Premiere! Starring Lance Henriksen (ALIENS) and Johnny Strong (THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS). Years after a mysterious plague has devastated the planet and turned most of humanity into blood-hungry creatures, a rogue drifter on a vengeful hunt stumbles across a band of survivors in an abandoned police station and reluctantly agrees to try to help them defend themselves and escape to the sanctuary they so desperately need. Our favorite action flick of 2016 also proves Henriksen can still kick some serious ass, in case you had any doubts. Trailer: https://youtu.be/ ocOPBPsmgBk

Watch the New Pitchfork Teaser Trailer: Press Release: "Los Angeles, CA - Pioneer Motion Pictures has unleashed a new teaser and poster for the new slasher film Pitchfork. The first film from Emmy-nominated choreographer Glenn Douglas Packard, Pitchfork kicks off a new franchise of horror, sending a broken and misshapen beast on a rampage fueled by secrets and betrayal.

Co-written by Packard and executive producer Darryl F. Gariglio, Pitchfork presents a new monster for the ages, joining the pantheon that has terrified audiences for decades as mutilated bodies pile up in their wake. Daniel Wilkinson stars as the titular Pitchfork, joined by Brian Raetz, Lindsey Nicole, Ryan Moore, Celina Beach, Keith Webb, Sheila Leason, Nicole Dambro and Vibhu Raghave.

Having recently shared a life-changing secret with his family, Hunter recruits his friends to come with him from New York to the farm where he grew up as he faces his parents for the first time. As the college students enjoy the fresh air of Michigan farm country, an older, more dangerous secret slowly emerges. While Hunter navigates a new place within his conservative family, a vicious creature from their past descends on the farm, putting the unsuspecting city kids in mortal danger.

Pitchfork will world premiere in 2016."
