The sad news that Roddy Piper passed away hit us all hard. However, one of his final roles will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

That will be the short horror, Portal To Hell.

Director Vivieno Caldinelli (Picnicface, This Hour Has 22 Minutes), writer Matt Watts (Michael: Tuesdays and Thursdays), and Roddy Piper (They Live) teamed up with executive producer Todd Brown (The Raid, ABCs of Death), executive producer Andrew Rosen (“Todd & the Book of Pure Evil”), and FX guru Steve Kostanski (Manborg) to bring horror fans the slimiest genre mash-up ever seen!

Jack (Piper) is a simple man with simple needs. Mostly he just needs to be left alone to read his book. It’s a good book and he likes it… or, at least, he would if the tenants of the building he manages weren’t so damn needy. And it’s not just blown fuses and clogged toilets… No, when the building power goes out, the culprit is a pair of Cthulhu-worshiping tenants opening a portal to the demon city of R’lyeh in the basement. Does this count as building maintenance? Is battling the supernatural part of Jack’s job description? Maybe not, but if Jack can’t close the portal, the entire building and – let’s face it – the whole world is screwed.

The short also stars Matt Watts, Laura Robinson, Jordan Todosey, Millie Davis, Clyde Whitham, and Donald Tripe.
