The 57th New York Film Festival will be kicking off September 27th through October 13th, and today they announced the opening night film will be the world premiere of Martin Scorsese‘s The Irishman. Based on the novel by Charles Brandt, the
Door Lock is a well shot and at times fiercely creepy thriller that almost acts as a companion piece to Sleep Tight, and while I wouldn’t say it reaches the same heights as the original, it deviates enough from the source material to feel like its own story.
The premise alone for Extra Ordinary, a film about a timid driving instructor whose ability to communicate with the dead puts her in a position to save the life of a teenager who is about to be sacrificed by a one-hit-wonder musician in order to resurrect his career, should be enough to warrant the price of admission.
The first set of selections for the Gala and Special Presentation programs for this year’s Toronto International Film Festival have been announced, which include 29 world premieres, 6 international premieres, 13 North American premieres, and 8 Canadian premieres.
The Wretched is a surprising delight, which doesn’t skimp on some great creature effects and fun, sometimes shocking moments that make this a memorable endeavor that I can easily recommend giving a look.
