The Montreal genre festival is also giving John Stockwell's 'Kickboxer: Vengeance' and Daniel Grou's 'King Dave' opening night film slots.

Kevin Smith's Yoga Hosers and the Marilyn Manson-produced and co-starring Let Me Make You a Martyr are among the films set to screen at the 2016 Fantasia Film Festival.

Smith will attend the festival to present Yoga Hosers, which features Smith's daughter, Harley Quinn Smith, and Johnny Depp's daughter, Lily-Rose Depp, as two Canadian yoga fanatics who team up to deal with a supernatural threat to Manitoba.

Manson will also be in Montreal for the world premiere of Corey Asraf and John Swab's Let Me Make You a Martyr, which he produces and co-stars in with Mark Boone Junior and Niko Nicotera.

As Fantasia unveiled its second wave of lineup titles, the festival is giving world premieres to Quebec director Grou's King Dave and Stockwell's Kickboxer: Vengeance, which stars Alain Moussi and Jean-Claude Van Damme as a muay Thai teacher with unconventional methods.

Fantasia will also see Japanese director Shinsuke Sato screen Library Wars: The Last Mission in Montreal, while there's a special screening for the Jacob Tremblay and Kate Bosworth-starrer Before I Wake from director Mike Flanagan.

Fest organizers announced earlier that Mexican horror master Guillermo del Toro will receive the Cheval Noir Award at the upcoming event, which runs from July 14 to Aug. 2.
