Midnight Madness

The festival also announced the Midnight Madness lineup. These films are usually more off-beat or cult in nature. While the premiers take place at midnight, there are usually subsequent showings during the day later in the festival. The films can be found here:


Some of the ones that caught my eye are:

JCVD, starring Jean-Claude Van Damme, taking a William-Shatneresque turn to his career and parodying himself.

Detroit Metal City, about a teenage boy in Japan who wants to be a pop star, but ends up fronting a death metal band; with Gene Simmons!

Chocolate, a martial arts film from the director and fight choreographer who did Ong-Bak.
