Here are some films not to be missed today:

The Redsin Tower, the notorious creator of the August Underground series smashes out of the mold with this demonic splatter hurricane in the vein of Lamberto Bava’s Demons. Director Fred Vogel will be here for the Canadian premiere

The King and the Clown, depicting the fragile reign and unchecked excesses of the loose cannon King Yeonsan, The King and the Clown ties into today’s socio-political climate, with themes also explored in recent Western films such as Marie Antoinette and Brokeback Mountain. The film was a smash at the Korean box office, and accumulated a pile of awards. Montreal premiere

We Are the Strange, M Dot Strange Blue and Emm are on a quest for ice cream but alas, the city is teeming with evil! This is an unclassifiable, hallucinatory film that exists in its own immersive universe. M dot Strange spent three years painstakingly creating it, using a range of animation techniques--traditional, stop-motion, computer, and his own unique blend of 8-bit graphics and anime, dubbed "Str8nime."

Exiled To’s new take on the Asian gangster film is set in a claustrophobic Macau. Injected with dark humour and phenomenal action set pieces that would echo Sam Peckinpah and Sergio Leone’s best moments, it’s a masterpiece of collective storytelling as the film unwraps with uncanny cool and confidence.

Nightmare Detective, Visionary cult filmmaker Shinya Tsukamoto (Tetsuo, Tokyo Fist, A Snake Of June) has committed one of the most shocking acts of his famously subversive career –- he’s made a wide-release studio film! A morbidly poetic and super violent headtrip of a horror/crime film, Nightmare Detective is Tsukamoto’s cultural Molotov cocktail, exploding in the faces of mainstream Japanese filmgoers.
