SIFF Cinema Egyptian | Midnight Thrills & Chills
New 2K restoration! This baffling and insanely entertaining Canadian classic of WTF-ery combines a horror movie with an After-School Special gone terribly, terribly wrong. Creepy, sex-obsessed 12-year-old Jamie is bullied at school, and his only friend is his evil, possessed teddy bear. But Jamie discovers some new friends when he finds a deep hole in the forest filled with a ravenous pack of mutants straight out of Troll 2. Instead of trick or treating for Halloween, he decides to teach his haters a lesson – by throwing them into The Pit!
