It was a good thing too, since I ended up waiting in the line from around 9:45 until just after 1:30.
The long wait was worth it though, since I managed to quite a few of my top picks (with the only real disappointment being that the Coen Brothers’ A Serious Man was off sale).
Here is a rundown of the first four films I nabbed tickets for:
George A. Romero’s Survival of the Dead – September 14 – 12:30pm
I never saw any of Romero’s infamous zombie films, so this will definitely be an interesting experience indeed.
Suck – September 16 – 5:45pm
This Canadian film mixes the current vampire craze with a rock ‘n roll film and should make for a good time.
Jennifer’s Body – September 17, 8:30pm
One of the top film’s of this year’s Midnight Madness programme. I was glad I was able to get a ticket (even though the screening is the night before it opens in theatres).
The Hole – September 19, 3:45pm
As the first 3D film at TIFF, there was no way I could have missed this.
And there you have it. I’m sure this list will grow, but it is definitely a good start.
