VIDEO: Watch Mia Kirshner being terrorized in Toronto
Found footage films have become very popular these days, and Toronto is getting in on the action: 388 Arletta Avenue, which was shot in Toronto, is opening in theatres on Friday. The film stars Nick Stahl and Toronto-born actress Mia Kirshner, and the story is very creepy. A stalker’s cameras are tracking every move they make, Stahl’s character gets weird phone calls from someone who says he can see him, and Kirshner looks pretty unhappy being taped up in what appears to be a closet. It’s a lot of action, which, in a found footage film, means the camera is very shaky and almost dizzying. It’s nice to see Stahl revisiting Gavin Strick–like roles, but we wish Kirshner would give comedy another shot.
