One of the films that really chilled me to my bones at last year’s Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal was a deliciously wintry psychological horror film called The Corridor. The directorial debut of Canadian filmmaker Evan Kelly, it snagged Fantasia’s Audience Award that night, and it’s finally getting a Toronto theatrical premiere this Friday at the Projection Booth Cinema (1035 Gerrard Street East), where it will play for at least a week-long engagement.
Written by Canuck scribe Josh MacDonald, The Corridor is about a group of buddies who convene at a cabin in the woods in an attempt to reconnect after suffering through a particularly traumatic experience together. Tension abounds until they stumble onto something mysterious out in that wilderness that not only binds them tighter than they’ve ever been, it also changes them forever. Unpredictable, gut-churning, bloody and bleak, The Corridor is an accomplished entry in the snow-covered pantheon of Canadian genre films. Support homegrown horror and check it out!
