WE WISH WE WERE SEEING

all cheerleaders die

  • ALL CHEERLEADERS DIE: This horror comedy kicks off the 25th annual Midnight Madness programming. From a directing duo (one half of which directed the Fille-fave May) comes a gory story about a high school outsider’s revenge. (11:59 p.m., Ryerson Theatre)
  • SALINGER: A documentary compiling archival material and info about the late, great author of The Catcher in the Rye makes it’s way to TIFF at the last minute. It tells the story of his life post-limelight and features celebrity interviews. (8:00 p.m., Scotiabank 2)

ALSO PLAYING

the fifth estate

  • THE FIFTH ESTATE: Admittedly, we’re not super-psyched about this year’s festival opener, but it’s worth a mention. This intense drama follows Julian Assange (Benedict Cumberbatch), the founder of Wikileaks, through his trial and tirbulations. (6:30 p.m., Visa Screening Room [Elgin]; 8:00 p.m. Roy Thompson Hall)
