Who doesn’t love some good old Canadian horror (I’m guessing very few Rue Morgue readers since this is a Canada-based publication)? Well I’ve got good news! The biggest celebration of Canadian horror is back as Blood in the Snow (BITS) 2019 takes place from November 21 to 26 at the Royal Cinema in Toronto. With six nights of the best horror fare in the nation, including feature films, shorts, webseries, and the newly added podcast category, BITS 2019 is looking forward to their most exciting event yet.
Feature films this year include:
- PUPPET KILLER (dir. Lisa Ovies)
- SHE NEVER DIED (dir. Audrey Cummings)
- THE NIGHTS BEFORE CHRISTMAS (dir. Paul Tanter)
- DEAD DICKS (dir. Chris Bavota and Lee Paula Springer)
- HAPPY FACE (dir. Alexandre Franchi)
- MAJIC (dir. Erin Berry)
- HUNTER’S MOON (dir. Matt Campagna)
- Z (dir. Brandon Christiensen)
There will also be three horror short film categories, which of course is a subject close to my heart. FUNNY FRIGHTS will focus on throwing some laughs in with the scares, EMERGING SCREAMS will give some up-and-coming film makers the spotlight, and DARD VISIONS will take viewers down a moodier path.
Rounding out the program will be a webseries program, featuring the the World Premiere of Sci-Fi series DEEP SIX (dir. Davin Lengyel), sponsored by the Independent Production Fund, and the annual “Bloodies” awards show. Plus, be sure to check out the NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD VR presented by Hollywood Suite.
