A Frame Apart Episode 8 - Cabin Fever VS Martyrs

As TIFF draws to a close this weekend, A Frame Apart pays homage to two of our favourite Midnight Madness flicks: Cabin Fever (2002) and Martyrs (2008). We discuss the significance of both of these films to us as filmmaker and critic, as well as consumers of culture and connoisseurs of the genre. Along the way we discuss the misrepresentation of horror, it’s power, and the influence of a festival like TIFF and its Midnight Madness programme. So pour yourself that tenth cup of coffee, put on your headphones or turn up the stereo and enjoy this week’s R-rated episode!

Alexandra West’s book “Films of the New French Extremity: Visceral Horror and National Identity”, in which she discusses the indomitable Martyrs, is available for purchase through:

    Severance was also my first Midnight Madness film, albeit at a repeat screening. Didn’t see a film at midnight until 2010.

    BTW, Poultrygeist played at Toronto After Dark (before I started going to the festival, though I still viewed the film list online).
