SHOCK to Present Israeli Horror Flick FREAK OUT at the Toronto Jewish Film Festival


SHOCK is proud to present acclaimed Israeli horror comedy FREAK OUT at TJFF 2016.

SHOCK is excited to team with the 24th annual Toronto Jewish Film Festival (running May 5th – 15th) for the Canadian premiere of director Boaz Armoni’s Israeli horror comedy FREAK OUT, screening as part of the festival on Saturday, May 14th at 10pm at Innis Town Hall.

Here’s the full synopsis for FREAK OUT:

Riding the wave of recent films such as Big Bag Wolves, Cats on a Pedal Boat and Goldberg and Eisenberg, Boaz Armoni’s Freak Out further demonstrates the skill of Israeli filmmakers to expertly weave horror and playful dark comedy. 18-year-old Matan is not having an easy time serving in the army; he is frightened and misses his mother. Things get even worse when he is forced to serve on a secluded base in the north of Israel with three macho bullies who will not stop playing pranks on him. When strange and inexplicable things begin to happen on guard duty, he realizes that they all might not get out alive.

The online TJFF film fest box office is open now and the physical box office opens its gates on April 24th.

SHOCK will be at the show and would love to see you there. Stay tuned for chances to win tix!
