Join Jane for a post-screening discussion about the book and its film adaptation.

CineMacabre: Delivery

  • The Royal Cinema (608 College Street)
  • 9:30 p.m.

Rue Morgue is revamping its monthly film screenings to better cater to the die-hard horror fan.

This month’s offering is the Canadian premiere of Brian Netto and Adam Schindler’s Delivery. This found-footage film—which could be described as the cinematic love child of Rosemary’s Baby and Paranormal Activity—sees Rachel and Kyle document their life on a reality lifestyle show as they prepare for their first child. But what the cameras catch will never make it to air…
