One of the big hitters at this year's Fantasia International Film Festival was announced today. François Simard, Anouk Whissell, and Yoann-Karl Whissel's Summer Of '84 will enjoy its Canadian première at the Montreal event.

The film focuses on a group of teenagers who become convinced that a police officer living nearby is a serial killer and set out to gather evidence - putting them in danger. We love everything that it represents," said festival co-Director Mitch Davis, praising the film for its storytelling.

Also announced was Quebecois horror anthology Montreal Dead End. More of the line-up is expected to be revealed soon.

Fantasia will run from 12 July to 1 August.
