Remember sneaking away to watch horror movies as a kid, just to get scared silly for days? That’s exactly what’s in store for your at this Toronto Halloween film festival, just five minutes from our hotel. Restricted to ages 18 and up, it’s like no other movie event in the city, a terrifyingly fun cinema fear-fest for anyone who loves to jump in their seat. Few things can get you in the spirit of the season quite like a good scary movie, and the 10th Annual Toronto After Dark Film Festival has roughly 50 of the freshest, most twisted short and feature-length selections of the year.


Frightfully Good Times Nightly

Prefer sci-fi, action, or cult comedy over horror? There will be plenty of those, too. Just remember to get a babysitter for the kiddos – and plan on staying out late, as every ticket also includes entry to Pub After Dark (117 John St.), a nightly mixer with the cast and crew of screenings like:
