Eli Roth's 'The Green Inferno' & More Unveiled For TIFF's 25th Anniversary Midnight Madness Lineup

It isn’t all high-falutin’ Oscar contenders headed to TIFF in September. Their famed Midnight Madness lineup, celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2013, provides attendees a chance to kick back and enjoy some good old fashioned thrills. And this morning, organizers have pulled back the curtain on the bloody, pulse-pounding delights they’ll have in store.

The world premiere of Eli Roth‘s “The Green Inferno” is the big highlight here among a slated that includes the North American premiere of bizarro Japanese filmmaker Sion Sono‘s “Why Don’t You Play In Hell?” and the latest from Lucky McKee (“The Woods,” “The Woman“) with “All Cheerleaders Must Die.”
TIFF also unveiled their documentary program today which includes efforts from Mark Cousins, Frederick Wiseman, Errol Morris and more.
Check out the slates below. The 38th Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 5 to 15, 2013.

travel to the ends of the earth, see the world, and live life to the
fullest. But the trip soon takes a dark and bloody turn. Just days in,
one of the men shows signs of a mysterious affliction which gradually
takes over his entire body and being. Now, thousands of miles from home,
in a foreign land, they must race to uncover the source of his illness
before it consumes him completely. Footage of their travels meant to
document pleasant memories may now become evidence of one of the most
shocking discoveries ever captured on film…and may be their only
postcard home.
