Toronto After Dark 2012 has come and gone. If you weren’t able to attend, then you missed out on tentacled aliens, creepy found footage, flesh starved zombies, neurotic writers, angry werewolves, suspicious crime scene photographers, a chainsaw at a wedding, killer sushi, and plenty other examples of the weird, scary, hilarious, and fantastical. Every year TAD tallies the votes from the ticketholders and passholders, coming up with an in depth list of awards. This year the results were a little surprising considering the closeness of the festival to Halloween – fans seemed to be locked into the comedies. Nevertheless, it’s tough to argue with the results if you were in the crowd as many films this year enthralled the audience with humour. Below is a brief list of some of the awards. For a more detailed list please visit the Toronto After Dark website.
