2013 Toronto Film Festival

2013 Toronto Film Festival Adds Midnight Madness, Vanguard, City to City and Documentary Selection

Not exactly the most exciting line-up additions

2013 Toronto Film Festival LineupThe 2013 Toronto Film Festival selection grew quite a bit today as the organizers announced the Midnight Madness, Documentary, Vanguard, City to City and Cinematheque selections for this year's festival.

Among the title announced there aren't exactly a ton of names that pop off the paper immediately. The Midnight Madness selection will open with Lucky McKee's All Cheerleaders Die in which a young girl who practices the dark arts turns on her best friend after she joins the cheer squad. However, I assume most attention will be on Eli Roth's The Green Inferno, a film in which a group of humanitarians go to the Amazon to help a native tribe only to have the tribe kidnap them and later learn their cannibalistic heritage is very much intact.

The Documentary selection includes plenty of familiar faces such as Marcel Ophüls, Claude Lanzmann and Errol Morris and Frank Pavich will be bringing Jodorowsky's Dune, which premiered in Cannes this year.

The Vanguard selection includes the one title I'm probably most excited to see in Alexandre Aja's Horns starring Daniel Radcliffe and Juno Temple in which Radcliffe plays Ignatius Perrish as he awakens after a hard night of drinking to find he has grown a pair of horns. In addition to his devilish appearance, the horns cause people to fall into a trance and voice their most unspeakable thoughts, an effective tool in Ig’s quest to discover the truth of his girlfriend's murder. Also among the Vanguard selection is Ti West's new film, The Sacrament starring Joe Swanberg, AJ Bowen, Kentucker Audley, Amy Seimetz and Gene Jones.

I have included all of the new additions directly below and also updated the complete 2013 Toronto Film Festival line-up right here.

The 38th Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 5 to 15, 2013 and I will be there through the 13th.

    Look at all those documentaries, there's bound to be some real stunners in there and Jodorowsky's Dune is actually one of my most anticipated #nerdmeup

    Brad can we expect you to check out Borgman here? I thought you would be seeing it in Cannes, but unless I missed something we never got a review.

    Brad, how excited are you for The Green Inferno? I mean, I know how much you loved EliRoth's last film at Midnight Madness?

    The only one I'm really interested in is "Horns", though I have very little faith in it. I love the book, but nothing about this adaptation inspires confidence. Otherwise, I'm sure some of the documentaries will be good.

    Brad, are you going to try to see The Green Inferno?
