Patrons Faint at Screening of Horror Flick THE INCIDENT!
We never know if we should buy these stories, but reports have come out from the Toronto film festival that several audience members fainted while watching “The Incident”. A horror film about night-shift workers in an insane asylum during a power outage.
Why doubt it? Well, it came upon the heels of the announcement that IFC had picked up the film to release under their IFC Midnight banner. Why else do we doubt it? We’ve tracked down reports like this before. They usually end up being demonstrably unrelated to the film. Another reason we doubt it? We’re just cynical bastards.
Still … you’re free to judge for yourself …
