    The Mummy's Hand  16mm 67m 1940
     In this acclaimed follow-up to the popular original, an expedition of American archaeologists, headed by Steve Banning (Dick Foran) and Baby Jenson (Wallace Ford), travels to Egypt in search of the undiscovered tomb of the Princess Ananka. There they soon discover the clues that lead them to a 3000-year-old mummy, who is guarded by a sinister high priest (Eduardo Ciannelli). Reluctantly funded by a magician (Cecil Kellaway) and his beautiful daughter (Peggy Moran), the expedition has its hands full battling the mummy, who goes on a killing rampage during each full moon, in this frightening chiller masterpiece.

    The Black Cat 16mm 65m 1934
    Honeymooning in Hungary, Joan and Peter Allison share their train compartment with Dr. Vitus Verdegast, a courtly but tragic man who is returning to the remains of the town he defended before becoming a prisoner of war for fifteen years. When their hotel-bound bus crashes in a mountain storm and Joan is injured, the travellers seek refuge in the home, built fortress-like upon the site of a bloody battlefield, of famed architect Hjalmar Poelzig. There, cat-phobic Verdegast learns his wife's fate, grieves for his lost daughter, and must play a game of chess for Allison's life. Written

    The Raven 16mm 61m 1935
    A wealthy judge coaxes the brilliant but eccentric neurological surgeon Dr. Vollin (Lugosi), who also has an obsessive penchant for Edgar Allen Poe, out of retirement to save the life of his daughter, a dancer crippled and brain damaged in an auto wreck. Vollin restores her completely, but also envisions her as his "Lenore," and cooks up a scheme to kidnap the woman and torture and kill her fiance' and father in his Poe-inspired dungeon. To do his dirty work, Vollin recruits a wanted criminal (Karloff), and turns him into a hideous monster to guarantee his subservience

    Starcrash (1978 92m)
    The late 70s were a ripe time for Star Wars "inspired" films and this may be on of the most shameless of the bunch.   Luigi Cozzi (Alien Contamination) directs David Hasselhoff, Genre favorite Caroline Munro, Christopher Plummer (Sound of Music) and Joe Spinnel (Maniac) in this low budget story of a pair of smugglers who are recruited for a secret mission to destroy a mysterious superweapon designed by the evil Count Zartham

    Yor - The Hunter from the Future  (1983 88m)
    The legendary Italian genre director Antonio Margheriti brings us this amazing blend of sword and sorcery and sci-fi in which our hero YOR fights aliens, dinosaurs, ape-men and various other bad guys all to the tune of his very own theme song!

    PLUS Trailers and other Surprises!

    Exhumed Films Presents: A Double Dose of Cannibal Carnage!

    Saturday, Sept 3rd, 2011 (NEW RESCHEDULED DATE)
    The Ibrahim Theater @ International House
    3701 Chestnut Street
    Philadelphia, PA
    Doors at 7:30pm, Trailers/Show at 8:00
    $10 for the Double Feature

    Jungle Holocaust (1977, 88m)
    Arguably part of the “Unholy Trinity” of Italian Cannibal movies (along with “Cannibal Holocaust” and “Cannibal Ferox”), “Jungle Holocaust” is one of the most infamous genre movies of all time. Directed by the beloved/reviled Ruggero Deodato (who also unleashed “Cannibal Holocaust” onto an unsuspecting world three years later), “Jungle Holocaust” set the standard for gratuitous sex and carnage that has since become the trademark of sleazy Italian genre films. A plane crash survivor is subjected to humiliation and torture at the hands of his cannibalistic captors. However, with the help of a young cannibal girl, our hero attempts to navigate his way through the treacherous jungle and escape his hellish ordeal. Note: the film will be screened under the title “Carnivorous,” which was used for the 1978 US re-release, where it played on a double bill with our second feature…

    Raw Meat (1973, 87 min)
    Originally released in the UK under the title “Death Line,” “Raw Meat” marked the auspicious feature film debut from director Gary Sherman, who would later go on to make the superbly creepy “Dead and Buried” and the superbly crappy “Poltergeist III”. “Raw Meat” stars Donald Pleasance as a police detective investigating a mysterious disappearance in the London Underground. Is it a simple case of accidental death…or something much more sinister and primal? Hmm, I wonder…Look for fan fave Christopher Lee in a quick cameo.


    Exhumed Films Wants You to GO APE!
    Sunday, July 31st, 2011
    Show starts at 11:00 am (Doors at 10am)
    Tickets: $20



    Exhumed Films proudly presents one of the greatest sci-fi series of all time: all five PLANET OF THE APES films, together for one special screening!  The 1968 original—starring Charlton Heston and written by “Twilight Zone” creator Rod Serling—changed the face of science-fiction forever, and spawned four sequels…as well as a live-action tv series and a Saturday morning cartoon.  In 1974, 20th Century Fox released all five motion pictures together as a “quintuple feature” for a limited time in selected theaters.  Now, Exhumed Films recreates the classic “Go Ape” screenings by presenting a rare presentation of all five APES films, back-to-back!  These films have everything: Chuck Heston in a loincloth!  Nuclear warhead worshipping mutants!  Time travel!  Chimps wearing ascots!  Ricardo Montalban in a turtleneck!  Paul Williams, John Huston, and Sheriff Lobo in the same film!  And of course, lots of damn, dirty apes!  Five films, back to back on the big screen for the first time in nearly 40 years! 

    Stay tuned to the Exhumed Films website or Facebook page for more info on this rare cinematic event!


    Exhumed Films eX-Fest
    SATURDAY, MAY 7th 11am to 11pm  $20
    Doors at 9am
    eXfest TICKETS ARE SOLD OUT


    eX-Fest is a chance for Exhumed Films to depart from our usual programming, but still give our audience members a crazy cinematic experience!  Exhumed usually screens primarily horror films, especially during our annual 24 Hour Horror-thon in October.  However, our tastes obviously run well past the horror genre, so eX-Fest will provide us with an opportunity to showcase examples of other cult/grindhouse type films which fall outside of the typical Exhumed repertoire. The idea is to show obscure examples of 7 different genres of film generally falling under the umbrella of "exploitation". Since we often only get to screen horror films thanks to a tight schedule of available dates, this is our chance to show you some really weird ass shit. Possible genres include but are not limited to: science-fiction, women-in-prison, western, war, cult comedy, giant monster, Euro crime, kung fu, biker, blaxploitation, sexploitation, and so on.



    A NIGHT OF MENACING MONSTERS AND MAYHEM!


    Friday, March 25, 2011
    Doors: 7:30 PM
    Show: 8 PM
    Admission: $10

    JUST ADDED - Steve Karpf, the screenwriter behind Gargoyles, will be at the show to introduce the film and answer questions after the show!


    Gargoyles
    (35mm / 1972 / US / Bill L. Norton / Approx 74m)
    Many people fondly remember the horror TV movies from the '70s such as Duel, Don't Be Afraid of the Dark and Bad Ronald, but with its creepy creatures (done by a young Stan Winston), Gargoyles ranks as one of the best.  A scientist and his daughter travelling through the desert come across a colony of Gargoyles intent on the destruction of mankind!!!!!!!   Don't miss this rare opportunity to see a 35mm print of the film that was never released in theatres in the US!

    Incubus  (35mm / 1981 / John Hough / Approx 93m)
    Fresh from directing films for Disney, veteran British Genre director John Hough (Twins of Evil, Legend of Hell House) took a huge left turn making this nasty piece of exploitation that is unapologetically sleazy with moments of stylized Argento-esque gore!!.   A young New England boy dreams of women being brutally raped and murdered, only to discover that his dreams are true and may be the result of a demon!
    Look for a cameo from Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson.

    A Family Friendly Evening of Mischievous Monsters


    Friday, Dec 17th, 2010
    Doors: 7:30 PM
    Show: 8 PM
    Admission: $10



    Troll 2 (35mm / 1990 / Italy / Claudio Fragasso / Approx 95m)


    NILBOG!!!  For those of you that come to the 24 hour fest every year, you know that there is always one film that is so crazy, so amazing, so inept, that it is the talk of the night...films such as "Boarding House" and "Raw Force".  Folks, this is one of those films, but without the agony (and ecstasy) of the 24 hour fest.  "Troll 2", the endearing "Best Worst Movie" is so batshit stupid that it must be seen to be believed.  It is so dumb that it can't even get the name right (there are no trolls at all in the movie)! Come out and see what everyone is talking about and find out for yourself why this film is so much fun!


    Gremlins (35mm / 1984 / US / Joe Dante / Approx 106m)

    Exhumed favorite Joe Dante ("The Howling") presents a holiday classic (that's right, it takes place during Christmas) that spawned a generation of rip-offs.  It turns out there are mythical gremlins in our world and after our "hero's" father purchases one from a creepy old guy (no Frogurt included), all hell breaks loose.  It seems that there are a few simple rules to owning a "mogwai", but its new owner is too busy making goo-goo eyes at Phoebe Cates and thinking about her taking off her top in "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" that he can't remember the rules. Pretty soon there is whole town of evil, destructive Bugs Bunny-style gremlins wreaking havoc.

    "A Double-Dose of Evil in August"
    Friday, August 27, 2010
    Doors: 7:30 PM
    Show: 8 PM
    Admission: $10

    Fear No Evil (Directed by Frank LaLoggia, US, 1981, 35mm, 99 minutes +/-, color) - At only 26, Frank LaLoggia (who later went on to direct The Lady in White) wrote/directed/co-produced and wrote the score for this ambitious little horror gem. While certainly influenced by other "spawn of Satan" films such as The Omen and The Exorcist and the Stephen King novel/Brian DePalma film Carrie, Fear No Evil is still marked with the distinctive stamp of its young director. Cinema has never seen a more fey Antichrist than Stefan Arngrim (of TV's Land of the Giants) as Andrew. It is the director's obvious struggles with his own sexuality that drive the sense of alienation that his abused and ultimately destructive teen wrecks on Rochester, New York. Aligned against Andrew is the reincarnation of an angel in the form of a confused high school girl played by Kathleen Rowe McAllen. Suffused with Catholicism, fueled by a great punk/new wave soundtrack (with the formidable likes of The Sex Pistols, Patti Smith, Richard Hell, The Ramones and Talking Heads) and featuring a zombies-and-laser-beams climax, Fear No Evil shines through with ambition despite uneven acting and bad '80s fashions.

    Tower of Evil (aka Beyond the Fog or The Horror of Snape Island, Directed by Jim O'Connolly, UK, 1972, 35mm, 89m +/-, color) - This little-seen British horror film of the early 1970s stands as one of the sleazier efforts of the era. Upon discovering the severely mutilated corpses of three teenagers and a traumatized survivor on deserted, foggy Snape Island, a team of archeologists head to out to discover the secret of the island and what happened to the female survivor of the slaughter. There they find lost Phoenician treasure and a beardo-weirdo killer intent on hacking them all to bloody bits. With a solid cast of British favorites of the era (Jill Hayworth, Dennis Price and the Carry On series' Robin Askwith), ample female nudity, proto-slasher film attacks and gallons of blood, Tower of Evil a film worth rediscovering by horror fans

    OZPLOITATION  DOUBLE FEATURE!
    2 Rare 35mm Prints
    Friday June 11th, 2010
    Doors at 7:30 / Films at 8:00pm  $10 at the door
     
    Road Games
    1981 / Australia / Dir: Richard Franklin / 35mm
     
    Stacy Keach is Pat Quid, a lone trucker who plays games to keep his sanity on longhauls through the desolate Outback. Jamie Lee Curtis is a free-spirited hitchhiker looking for excitement with a game of her own. And somewhere up ahead is a maniac in a van whose game may be butchering young women along the highway.

    Director Richard Franklin (Psycho II, Link) packs plenty of Hitchcock-like twists and suspense into this sly shocker that was nominated for four Australian Film Institute Awards and remains one of the most surprising thrillers of the '80s.  (Synopsis courtesy of Anchor Bay)
     
    Patrick
    1978 / Australia / Dir: Richard Franklin / 35mm
     
    After violently murdering his mother and her lover, Patrick (Robert Thompson) lays comatose in a private hospital. When a pretty young nurse (Susan Penhaligon) begins working at the hospital, Patrick tries communicating with her, while others in her life are being hurt and killed in mysterious ways.  (Synopsis courtesy of Synapse Films)

    International House / 3701 Chestnut St / Philadelphia, PA

    Joseph A. Gervasi and International House Philadelphia Present:
     
    Nobuhiko Obayahshi’s HOUSE [HAUSU]
    (Japan, 1977, 87 minutes, Japanese with English subtitles, 35mm)
     
    June 5, 2010 7 PM
    $8 general admission
    Featuring vegetarian sushi provided by Magokoro  Foods
    At the International House, Philadelphia
    3701 Chestnut St., Philadelphia, PA
    Advance tickets available at: http://www.ihousephilly.org/programs-film-at-IHouse.htm
     
    How to describe Nobuhiko Obayahshi’s 1977 movie House? As a psychedelic ghost tale? A stream-of-consciousness bedtime story? An episode of Scooby Doo as directed by Dario Argento? Any of the above will do for this hallucinatory head trip about a schoolgirl who travels with six classmates to her ailing aunt’s creaky country home, only to come face to face with evil spirits, bloodthirsty pianos, and a demonic housecat. Too absurd to be genuinely terrifying, yet too nightmarish to be merely comic, House seems like it was beamed to Earth from another planet. Or perhaps the mind of a child: the director fashioned the script after the eccentric musings of his eleven-year-old daughter, then employed all the tricks in his analog arsenal (mattes, animation, and collage) to make them a visually astonishing, raucous reality. Never before released in the United States, and a bona fide cult classic in the making, House is one of the most exciting genre discoveries in years. [From the Janus Films website.]

    "Keep Your Eyes on the Skies!"
    Two films by Tobe Hooper
    $10  / Doors at 7:30 Show at 8:00pm

    Lifeforce
    1985 / Tobe Hooper / 35mm
    Coming off the success of Poltergeist, Tobe Hooper turned his attention to this science-fiction film based on the novel The Space Vampires by Colin Wilson and with a screenplay by Dan O'Bannon (RIP) that is fondly remembered as the film in which Mathilda May walks around naked for two hours while literally sucking the life out of people!

    Invaders From Mars
    1986 / Tobe Hooper / 35mm
    Tobe Hooper's remake of the classic 1950s Cold War science-fiction film finds a young boy trying to stop invading martians from overtaking his town.


    International House / 3701 Chestnut St / Philadelphia, PA


    Friday March 5th, 2010
    "One Dark Night of the Zombies!"
    Doors at 7:30 / Films at 8:00pm  $10 at the door
     
    Our first feature:
    ONE DARK NIGHT
    1983 / USA / Dir: Tom McLaughlin / 35mm

    A young girl's initiation into a sorority-like group of teens involves her being able to spend the night in a creepy mausoleum.  How could she know that it would contain the body of Raymar, an undead psychic who uses telekinesis to reanimate corpses to do his evil bidding?  Directed by Tom McLoughlin, who would go on to direct the very entertaining Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives, One Dark Night is spooky, silly fun--shown on a pristine 35mm print.  Starring Meg Tilly (!) and Adam West (!!)

    Followed by:
    NIGHT OF THE ZOMBIES
    1980 / Italy / Dir: Bruno Mattei / 35mm

    This is the one you've been waiting for!  Screened only once by Exhumed Films in 1999, this infamous zombie "classic" has finally been unearthed from our vaults.  Night of the Zombies (aka Virus, Hell of the Living Dead) tells a familiar tale: an accident involving experimental chemicals has unleashed a plague that turns the bodies of the recently deceased into cannibalistic monsters.  A tv reporter joins up with a team of special forces commandos to investigate and eventually battle the armies of the undead.  A total shameless rip-off of both George Romero's Dawn of the Dead (right down to the plagiarized Goblin soundtrack!)  and Fulci's Zombie, but filled with enough ridiculous gore to make us forgive its faults.  Almost.

The Sedgwick Theatre was a gorgeous, huge 1920s Art Deco movie/vaudville palace. Now it's semi-dilapated but on the rise. The theatre, through the hard work of Flickering Films, is now host to a series of cultural events, many centered around film and video. Exhumed Films is happy to be working with them and hopes that the future will bring more of our screenings at the Sedgwick. It's our intention to show some of our rarest, most obscure prints at this venue. Join your pals at Exhumed Films and support the DIY, grassroots efforts of Flickering Films.

    Don't Be Afraid of the Dark (Directed by John Newland, US, 1973, 73 minutes, 16mm) - Commonly remembered as "that movie with the trolls that live in the walls of an old house that try to kill the woman the lives there," Don't Be Afraid of the Dark stands as not only one of the creepiest movies of the 70s, but as the the creepiest TV movie of the week ever! Kim Darby plays a young wife who, after discovering the fireplace in the creepy old study of her house bricked up, unleashes a colony of troll-like creatures that terrify her to the point of hysteria. Unavailable on home video for the past 25 years, this obscure gem is still as good as you remember from that late night ABC TV viewing. If you haven't seen it, you're bound to find a new favorite.
    Bad Ronald (Directed by Buzz Kulik, US, 1974, 74 minutes, 16mm) - Ronald is a spaced-out bug of a boy who lives in his own fantasy world and murders a young girl in his neighborhood. His mother promptly hides him a away in a secret room of their house, but when she croaks, Ronald stays. A new family movies in and finds their home haunted not by a ghost, but by our boy Bad-ass Ronald. Televised mayhem ensues. For a film that's never seen release on video, Bad Ronald is burned into the memory of those who managed to see it and has taunted others by remaining just out of reach. Come join us for a night with this very special fellow and see what his twisted freakazoid mind gets up to....

    (Jeff will be charging a small fee for autographs)

    "Acid and Evisceration: Jeff Lieberman Double Feature"
    Blue Sunshine
    Directed by Jeff Lieberman/US/1976/90 minutes/16mm
    This classic cult horror film, from acclaimed writer/director Jeff Lieberman, is a masterpiece of psychological suspense and terror. At a party, someone goes insane and murders three women. Falsely accused of the brutal killings, Jerry (Red Shoe Diaries' Zalman King) is on the run. More bizarre killings continue with alarming frequency all over town. Trying to clear his name, Jerry discovers the shocking truth - people are losing their hair and turning into violent psychopaths and the connection may be some LSD all the murderers took a decade before. Soon, if Jerry can't stop it, the horror will become uncontrollable -- the horror caused by Blue Sunshine!

    Just Before Dawn
    Directed by Jeff Lieberman/US/1981/99 minutes/16mm
    Five youths set out for a weekend camping excursion, to drink, frolic and skinny-dip on an isolated piece of land one of them has inherited. Despite ominous warnings of local forest rangers, strange backwoods families and a hollering drunken hunter claiming to have witnessed his friends evisceration by the hands of "demons", they trek farther into the foliage. Beautifully shot, extremely eerie, featuring the most demented murderer since Jason Voorhees, and a horrifying twist that will make you wonder: Will any of them survive those dark hours just before dawn? Presented here in a very rare longer print with more footage than any video release of the film.

    "Italian Flesh Eaters Double Feature!!"

    Cannibal Apocalypse aka Invasion of the Flesh Hunters

    Directed by Antonio Margheriti (as "Anthony M. Dawson")/Italy/1980/96 minutes/35mm

    A rare early '80s Italian gore classic. The horrors of war take on a whole new meaning for Vietnam vet Norman Hopper (John Saxon, Enter the Dragon and Black Christmas), whose quiet domestic life in Atlanta is shattered by the return of Charlie Bukowski, a combat buddy who dredges up terrifying flashbacks of flesh eating and bloodshed in the war-torn jungles. Now on the run from the law, Charlie begs Norman to help him get out of town with another fellow veteran, Tom (Tony King, Shaft). Soon the ragtag team of cannibals are fighting for their lives, spreading a deadly contagion through the city before heading into the sewers for a gut-wrenching climax you won't soon forget! .

    EVIL DEAD 2

     

    Let’s be frank: Exhumed Films has shown this movie more frequently than any other film in our 11 years of existence, to the point that we’re all sick of it.  But despite how many times we’ve screened it, we are constantly bombarded by e-mail requests from audience members wishing to see it again.  So every few years we dust it off to show that we’re not total snobs, deaf to the demands of our patrons.  The plot of Evil Dead 2 concerns a small group of people alone in the woods who battle Sumerian demons intent on possessing the living.  That’s about all you need to know for plot—and realistically, if you haven’t seen this movie 42 times by now, an Exhumed Films show is probably not the place for you.

     

    Dir. Sam Raimi \ USA \ 1987 \ 35 mm \ 85 minutes \ Color

     

    THE ASPHYX

     

    One of the perks of showing Evil Dead 2 ad nauseam is that we’re able to pair it with lesser-seen horror films that are worthy of re-discovery; our second feature is one such film.  The Asphyx is a creepy, intelligent horror film about the search for immortality, and its unfortunate consequences.  A turn-of-the-century scientist notices that photographs of his dying patients all contain an image of some mysterious apparition.  He then begins to suspect that this may be the mythological spirit of death called the asphyx, and becomes obsessed with the notion that capturing this spirit might result in immortality.  As can be expected, this quest takes a noticeable turn for the worse.  Even if you’re tired of Evil Dead 2, The Asphyx is well worth the price of admission.

    Friday February 6th: Exhumed Films presents a Dario Argento Double Feature!

    $10 - Doors at 7:30 Show at 8:00pm

    CREEPERS

     

    Dario Argento’s supernatural thriller Creepers features Academy Award winning actress Jennifer Connelly in her first starring theatrical role (one year before her appearance in Jim Henson’s Labyrinth made her semi-famous).  A young girl, with an amazing ability to communicate with insects (!), is transferred to an exclusive Swiss boarding school, where her unusual capability might help solve a string of murders.  Also starring genre favorite Donald Pleasance.

     

    Dir. Dario Argento \ Italy \ 1985 \ 35mm \ 82 minutes \ Color

     

    TWO EVIL EYES

     

    When Italian horror master Dario Argento teamed up with famed American director George Romero (creator of Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead) to produce an anthology horror film, genre fans were thrilled with the prospect of Romero’s penchant for blood and gore combining with Argento’s surreal, flamboyant visual style.  Surprisingly, the final product, Two Evil Eyes, is perhaps more subdued a film than one might expect, though it is still a fascinating project.  Romero and Argento each direct a short film based (however loosely) on the works of Edgar Allen Poe: Romero deals with a different sort of “undead” with his adaptation of Poe’s “M. Valdemar,” while Argento’s update of “The Black Cat” features some unique twists on the original.  Stars Harvey Keitel, Adrienne Barbeau, and E.G. Marshall.

    CHRISTMAS EVIL Despite having a similar plot to Silent Night, Deadly Night, Christmas Evil attracted little attention or controversy when it was released in 1980. Once again we have an unstable main character who puts on the red suit and beard and gives the naughty what they deserve-and we're not talking about lumps of coal. Arguably the best of the "Christmas Killer" movies, Christmas Evil should not be missed. This rare screening features a 35mm print from the personal collection of the film's director.

    SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT What would the Christmas season be without murderous psychopaths dressed up like Santa Claus? That's right: dull. Fortunately, both of tonight's films feature sinister Saint Nicks. First up is Silent Night, Deadly Night, which caused a firestorm of controversy upon its release in 1984. The plot concerns a deranged young man who dresses as Santa one Christmas Eve and punishes "naughty" individuals, including the obligatory group of promiscuous teens. Although the film is no more sleazy than the dozens of other slashers prevalent in the early '80s, Silent Night, Deadly Night outraged many who felt the demonizing of a beloved childhood icon was just going too far. Critics lambasted the movie while protesters showed up at local movie theaters to express their disgust. As a result of the controversy, Silent Night, Deadly Night was pulled from theaters, an act which essentially marked the death knell of the slasher film. Which, in retrospect, maybe wasn't such a bad thing.

    Sat / Sun November 1-2, 2008 : The triumphant return of the Exhumed Films 24 Hour Horror-thon!

    Doors open at 11:00 am on Saturday, Tickets $20

    Because you demanded it! Exhumed Films presents the second annual 24 Hour Horror-thon: a full 24 hour marathon of nonstop horror mayhem! We'll start at noon on Saturday and go straight through until noon on Sunday. To add an element of fun and surprise, the lineup of films is being kept secret--people who come to the show will only find out what the features are as they unspool onto the screen. The show will be a combination of some of the biggest horror titles of the last 30 years or so mixed with some really rare gems. Plus tons of classic trailers, shorts, and other oddities.  Can Exhumed top last year's line-up? Can you stay awake for the entire 24 hours? Be here on November 1st to find out!

    THE ALL NEW UPDATED FOR 2008 Exhumed Films 25 Hour Horror-thon FAQ!

    Q: I’m unfamiliar with this Horror-thon you speak of...what is involved?
     
    A: Last year, in celebration of Exhumed Films’ 10th anniversary, we held a
    24 hour marathon of non-stop horror films.  All of the films were kept
    secret until the moment they unspooled onto the screen.  In all, we screened 14 complete films and dozens of trailers & shorts.  It was ever so much fun.
     
    Q: So it’s not your 10th anniversary anymore.  Why are you doing this
    again?

     
    A: As I said, the four of us in Exhumed had a great time, and the audience
    response was tremendous.  We had many people express that they wished this could become an annual event.  So we’ll try it again this year and see how things go.  If this year is as much fun, perhaps it could become a Philly tradition.  Or maybe this will be the last time.  We’ll see.
     
    Q: You’re advertising this year’s marathon as a 25 hour fest.  What is
    the starting and ending time?

     
    A: It starts at noon on Saturday, November 1st, and ends at noon on Sunday November 2nd.  But due to Daylight Savings Time, we set the clocks back an hour at 2am, so we gain an extra hour of film time!
     
    Q: Are you planning to screen 14 movies again this year?
     
    A: Right now we’ve got a tentative schedule of 13 films, even with that
    extra hour—a few of this year’s movies are slightly longer than last
    year’s.  But if we adjust the number of trailers & shorts we show, we
    might be able to squeeze in one more movie.  Plan on 13 films, but don’t
    be surprised if you show up on November 1st & there’s a bonus movie.
     
    Q: Where is the show taking place?

    A: Once again, the Horror-thon will take place at the International House at University of Pennsylvania, 3701 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia.
     
    Q: Hey, I heard the I-House is undergoing renovations.  Are you sure the
    theater will be finished in time?


    A: Absolutely!  The renovations will be completed soon, and film programs at the I-House will resume in September.  So work will be finished in plenty of time for our show on November 1st-2nd.

    Q: Now in the past, I’ve noticed that the seats at the International House
    are…how can I put this politely?  Ass-bustingly painful.  How am I
    supposed to sit on one of those seats for 25 hours?


    A: One of the major focuses of the renovation has been to install more
    comfortable seating.  All of the old seats have been replaced with new ones that we have been assured are more comfortable than what existed previously. So that’s really good news.
     
    Q: When I attended the marathon last year, I brought….
     
    A: Wait a minute, I thought you said you had never heard of the Horror-thon before!
     
    Q: No, I’m a different person than the one who was speaking earlier.
     
    A: Oh, I’m sorry.  Please continue with your question.
     
    Q: Thanks.  As I was saying, when I attended the marathon last year, I
    brought a sleeping bag so I could sprawl out on the floor, and some other
    guy actually pitched a tent by the front of the screen.  Can we do stuff
    like that again?

     
    A: Unfortunately, no.  Because of the new seating arrangement at the
    I-House, there is actually much less space between the screen/stage and the first row of seats.  As a result, we cannot let folks sprawl out on the
    floor, as it will block the passage of people entering and leaving the
    theater.  Of course, you are still welcome to bring pillows, blankets,
    pajamas, etc., but you’ll need to utilize them from the comfort of your
    wonderfully cushy new seats.
     
    Q: How much are tickets to the Horror-thon?
     
    A: Tickets to the Horror-thon are once again a bargain basement $20 per
    person.  That’s less than one dollar per hour of entertainment!
     
    Q: When and how can I purchase tickets for the show?
     
    A: Advance tickets are now on sale at Ticketweb.  Click on this link:
     
    ADVANCE TICKETS ARE SOLD OUT.  WE HAVE ABOUT 75 TICKETS AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR AT APPROX 11am.
     
    Tickets can also be purchased at the International House beginning one hour before showtime on November 1st.  Last year’s show was a sell-out event, so it might not be a bad idea to buy tickets in advance in order to
    guarantee that you’ll get in!
     
    Q: Can I purchase my ticket at the door with a credit card?

    A: No.  Obviously, advance online tickets can be purchased with a credit
    card, but you will need cash if you are planning to purchase your tickets at the door the day of the show.

    Q: What if I plan to come late or only stay for a few movies—can I get in
    at a reduced rate?

     
    A: Sorry, but tickets are still $20 whether you plan on staying for the
    entire 24 hours or just a few hours.
     
    Q: Can I watch a few films, leave, then come back later?

    A: Yes.  All audience members will receive a wristband and also a hand stamp to verify that you have paid your $20.  Just be sure to keep your wristband and your stamp visible so that if you go out for a while and come back later, you'll have proof that you have already paid & will be allowed re-entry to the theater.
     
    Q: What if I wash my hands and accidentally wash off the hand stamp?
     
    A: Don't wash the top of your hand.
     
    Q: Are you keeping the movie titles a secret again?
     
    A: Yes.
     
    Q: Weren’t people last year really annoyed by not knowing what films were playing?
     
    A: Actually, I think most people enjoyed the element of surprise.  It was
    fun watching audience members try to guess what films would be coming up next.
     
    Q: Do you give any sorts of clues as to what the films are?
     
    A: Last year, we distributed a program at the Horror-thon which gave basic information about the starting/ending times of the films, as well as the genre you could expect.  For example, the first film last year started at 12:15 and was listed in the program as “Slasher Classic.”  We’re
    planning to do a similar program this year so that you will have an idea
    when the films will start and finish and can have fun guessing what the film might be.
     
    As was the case last year, the lineup will be a combination of films we've
    shown before and other titles we've never screened.  Many of the titles
    could be considered fan favorites, but we have some really exciting rarities
    as well.  The films are primarily from the 1970s & 1980s.  You'll can expect
    a little of everything: zombies, slashers, classic monsters, exploitation,
    extreme gore and extreme campiness.  Our primary rule in selecting the films for the lineup is that we want them to be fun for the audience—nothing too grim or depressing.  In other words, don’t expect Last House on the Left or Cannibal Holocaust.
     
    Q: Do you have a list of the movies you showed last year?

    A: Exhumed Films does not have a list on its site or the Myspace page.  But if you Google around the net, you can probably find a few blogs where some folks listed the movies we ran.
     
    Q: Will you be doing any encore presentations of films you showed during
    last year’s Horror-thon.?

     
    A: As of right now, no films will be repeated from the previous marathon. 
    But as was mentioned earlier, a number of the films at this year’s show
    will be films that Exhumed has screened at some point in our 11 year
    history.  Might we be tempted to use one of our most popular films from last year as that bonus 14th film, should such a thing come to pass?  Maybe, but like I said, right now all 13 films on the schedule are different ones from last year’s marathon.
     
    Q: I looked at the list of films you showed last year, and there are some
    movies that I think were poor choices.  You’re not going to show films
    like that again, are you?

     
    A: Look, here’s the thing: we will never please everybody.  We have heard
    complaints from some people that there were too many “overplayed” films
    on last year’s bill and not enough rare films.  Conversely, we’ve had
    other people tell us that we showed too many obscurities and not enough of the “classics.”  One of the dangers of not telling people the film
    titles in advance is that some folks build imaginary playlists in their
    heads of what they would most want to see, and if the actual films don’t
    match the films they’re hoping for, they feel let down.  But overall, I
    think most people were satisfied with the majority of our film selections. 
    Remember that we try our best to design a program that will appeal to a
    variety of different people: the zombie lovers, the gorehounds, the slasher
    fans, the classic monster fans, the Eurohorror aficionados, etc.  Hopefully,
    we can give everybody something they will really enjoy.
     
    Will we top last year’s lineup?  I dunno.  That depends on your point of
    view.  We hope everyone likes what we’re screening.  And if not, fer
    Chrissakes, it only cost you $20!  Quit your griping, you whiny bastards!
     
    Q: Are you selling food at this show?
     
    A:  The I-House does not have a concession stand, per se, but there are
    vending machines and a small café in the lobby, and  there's a Wawa right
    down the street.  There are also a number of nearby restaurants if you want to sneak out for lunch, dinner, etc.   You are welcome to bring outside snack food (chips, popcorn, etc.) into the theater as long as you do not make a mess and you clean up after yourself.  But due to the nice, clean, comfy new seats, you CANNOT bring in dinner foods, i.e., cheese-steaks, pizza, etc.  Please eat all meals at a restaurant or in the I-House lobby (which has tables & chairs for your use) in order to keep the theater clean!
     
    Q: Will there be other stuff to buy?
     
    A: As always, Diabolik DVD will have a table of cult, horror, obscure films
    for sale throughout much of the show.  We will also Exhumed Films t-shirts
    for sale.
     
    Q: Besides money for tickets and DVDs and t-shirts and food, what else
    should I bring to the show?

     
    A: If you're in for the long haul, a pillow and blanket might make for a
    cozier viewing experience at 3am.  Also plan on bringing lots of quarters to
    fill the parking meter periodically if you drive to the show.  Perhaps some
    caffeine pills or Red Bull would come in handy.  And Tylenol.  Oh, and
    we’ve learned from last year that bringing some deodorant with you (and
    also bathing prior to the show!) will help prevent the theater from getting
    too “ripe.”
     
    Speaking of bringing caffeine to stay awake: last year the staff of the
    I-House was upset that some audience members were sleeping on couches in the lobby.  Since the I-House is also a student residence hall in addition to a theater, we can’t have Exhumed patrons sleeping in public areas.  So
    please be aware that if you want to take a nap, you’ll have to do so in
    your theater seat.
     
    Q: This show sounds like a cool idea.  Is there anything I can do to help
    with the marathon?

     
    A: Tell your friends.  Most of the people who discover Exhumed Films do so
    via word of mouth.  This is obviously a very expensive undertaking for us,
    so the more people who attend, the greater the likelihood of our breaking
    even!  You might also consider passing out some fliers in your area to help
    spread the word.
     

     

    Friday October 3, 2008 : Exhumed Films presents a double feature of Slashers & Psychotics!

    Doors open at 8:30 pm, Tickets $10

    HALLOWEEN II

    John Carpenter wrote this sequel to his widely successful Halloween, but passed directing chores to newcomer Rick Rosenthal. The resulting film is not up to the iconic original, but is still an enjoyable entry in the slasher genre. Picking up moments after the end of the first film, Halloween II once again features Jaime Lee Curtis as the long-suffering Laurie Strode, who soon discovers why exactly the psychotic Michael Myers has such an unhealthy obsession with her. Donald Pleasance also returns as Dr. Loomis, but keep an eye out for Dana Carvey in an early film role before he hit it big with that other Michael Myers.
    Dir. Rick Rosenthal \ USA \ 1981 \ 35mm \ 92 min. \ Color

    EATEN ALIVE

    Like Halloween II, our second feature of the evening is also a follow up to groundbreaking horror classic. Director Tobe Hooper followed The Texas Chain Saw Massacre with Eaten Alive, a surreal shocker that is sometimes gruesome, sometimes hilarious, but always entertaining. Psychotic motel owner Judd (Neville Brand) keeps a pet crocodile in the swamp beneath his establishment, which makes disposing of problematic hotel guests remarkably convenient. Also features genre favorites Robert Englund, Carolyn Jones, Mel Ferrer, and Marilyn Burns.
    Dir. Tobe Hooper \ USA \ 1977 \ 35mm \ 91 min. \ Color

     

     

    June 7: 70's Nightmares!!

    Doors at 7:30 / Show at 8:00pm  $12
      
    Malatesta's Carnival of Blood - Directed by Christopher Speeth. USA. 1973. 74 minutes. Color. 35mm. Until just a few years ago, Malatesta's Carnival of Blood was considered a lost film. Shot in the early '70s and released -- barely -- in 1973, the film became the subject of horror fan lore until it was released on the director's own DVD label in 2003. The film concerns a family who poses as new workers at a sinister carnival to find their missing son. As they soon find out, the carnival is populated by ghouls, cannibals and flesh-eating freaks, many of whom are obsessed with old silent films. More a lysergic, hallucinogenic nightmare than a straight-ahead horror film, Malatesta disturbs and confounds the viewer with some of the most bizarre art direction captured on film.  The film was shot outside Philadelphia with a mostly local cast and crew. The aforementioned surreal art design was created by a Philly-based art troupe called Alley Friends, who are now famous in the architecture world for their eco-friendly, sustainable energy building designs. The late Herve Villechaize, best known as the dwarf "Tattoo" on television's Fantasy Island, plays a significant role (his first film role). Come join local director Christopher Speeth as he presents the only 35mm print in existence: his own archival print, which may never again be screened to the public. Mr. Speeth will be on hand to introduce his film and to answer questions after it runs.
     
    Messiah of Evil - Directed Huyck. USA. 1973. 90 minutes. Color. 35mm. Written by the team of Willard Huyck and Gloria Katz, who a few years later went on to write the script for American Graffiti, Messiah of Evil is one of the finest, most neglected horror films of the 1970s. Only ever released cropped on VHS and on poor-quality, bootleg DVDs, this is one film that needs to be seen projected thanks to its 2.35:1 'scope photography, which is essential to creating the film's bleak mood. This movie achieves what so many direct H.P. Lovecraft film adaptations have failed to rise to: a truly Lovecraftian feel. Coupled with post-Night of the Living Dead flesh-eating zombies, you have a horror film capable of getting under your skin like few others. Messiah of Evil boasts some of the creepiest set pieces in '70s cinema and a cast of well-loved cult film performers including Joy Bang, Marianna Hill, Royal Dano, Anitra Ford and Elisha Cook, Jr. You won't want to miss this rare screening.

    We are delighted to announce that in addition to director Christopher Speeth, Exhumed Films will also present lead actress Janine Carazo, Alley Friends art direction team member Richard Strange, and flesh-eating ghoul extra Roberta Miller. This will most likely be the only time these members of the MALATESTA cast and production team ever gather in one place! We'll also have popcorn and treats by the vegan bakers of the Salt of the Earth collective. Artist and Near Dark member Justin Miller will have hand-screenprinted, signed and numbered posters for sale. Try to get your Diabolik DVD show orders in early so you get what you want. This is the last Exhumed Films screening until October 3, so don't miss what stands to be one of our best-ever shows!

     

     

    APRIL 19: Exhumed Films Presents a Double Feature of Bizarre Biker Battles!

    Doors at 8:30 / Show at 9:00pm  $10  (please note the later start time)
     
    KNIGHTRIDERS
    Following the phenomenal success of his living dead classic Dawn of the Dead, horror icon George A. Romero took a break from zombies and monsters to create Knightriders, an odd fantasy/fable about a group of bikers/performers that tries to recapture the glory and nobility of medieval knights by performing at "Renaissance Faires" and jousting on Harleys instead of horses. The troupe must contend with the challenge of maintaining the purity of their idyllic "kingdom" while being tempted by the contemporary lures of wealth and celebrity. Though it may sound bizarre, Knightriders has a great deal of heart and is one of Romero's most personal films. Starring Ed Harris (in his first major role) and genre favorite Tom Savini.
    Dir. George Romero \ US \ 1981 \ 35mm \ 145 min. \ Color
     
    1990: THE BRONX WARRIORS
    The Italian film industry of the 1980s apparently didn't have much faith in the future of American society. In the wake of dystopic sci-fi classics like John Carpenter's Escape from New York and George Miller's Mad Max came a new subgenre of Italian action films set in a post apocalyptic United States, most with remarkably derivative titles: After the Fall of New York, Escape from the Bronx, 2020: Texas Gladiators, etc. Exhumed Films is "proud" to present one of the most infamous movies of the genre, 1990: The Bronx Warriors. In the distant future of...well...1990..., Trash (Mark Gregory) leads a gang of big haired, spandexed bikers called The Riders, who fight for their turf in the lawless streets of a ravaged New York City. But when Trash falls in with a wealthy runaway with ties to a corporate fortune, he encounters the ruthless mercenary Hammer (Vic Morrow, wielding a mean flame thrower) who has been sent into The Bronx to reclaim the missing heiress. Full of violence and absurdity, 1990: The Bronx Warriors is sure to entertain. Also featuring Fred Willamson and Italian horror stalwart George Eastman.

    MARCH 7: Exhumed Films says DON'T miss this double feature!

    Doors at 7:30 / Show at 8:00pm  $10
     
    DON'T OPEN THE WINDOW
    The first of many European zombie films inspired by George Romero's Night of the Living Dead, Jorge Grau's stylish living dead chiller has the distinction of being quite possibly the most frequently re-titled film in cinema history! Better known under the name Let Sleeping Corpses Lie (or Breakfast at the Manchester Morgue, or Living Dead at Manchester Morgue, or.....) Don't Open the Window centers on two young people in the English countryside who discover that a local farmer's attempt to use radiation as a form of insect control has accidentally resurrected the recently deceased. Yet stubborn police detective Arthur Kennedy suspects that the spate of murders and cannibalism cropping up in the area are not supernatural in nature, but rather ritualistic killings performed by our hippie-ish leading man.
    Dir. Jorge Grau \ Spain & Italy \ 1974 \ 35mm \ 85 min. \ Color
     
    DON'T GO IN THE HOUSE
    A grim, unpleasant slasher film that is definitely not for the feint of heart or easily offended: a victim of child abuse (Dan Grimaldi) grows up to become a maniacal construction worker. He stalks women at discos, takes them home, then hangs them upside-down in a special steel-walled room and sets them on fire. Quentin Tarrantino cites this movie as one of the most disturbing films he's ever seen--and this is coming from the guy responsible for that scene with the ear and the straight razor...

    FEBRUARY 1: Exhumed Films Presents a Giallo Double Feature!

    TENEBRE
    After dipping into the world of supernatural horror with Suspiria and Inferno, renowned Italian director Dario Argento returned to the giallo subgenre that made him famous. Tenebre follows a writer who arrives in Rome only to find somebody is using his novels as the inspiration for a series of grisly murders. As the death toll mounts the police are ever baffled, and the writer becomes more closely linked to the case than is comfortable. Arguably one of Argento's finest films (and one that is rarely screened in the United States), Tenebre is not to be missed.
    Dir. Dario Argento \ Italy \ 1982 \ 35mm \ 101 min. \ Color
     
    TORSO
    Directed by the infamous Sergio Martino (Slave of the Cannibal God, Screamers), Torso is an underrated giallo about an American exchange student in Rome who, along with her friends, is stalked by a mysterious killer. His modus operandi? Strangling women with his red scarf. The violence on screen is sometimes subdued, sometimes brutal, but always terrifying.

    Exhumed Films 24 Hour Horror-thon FAQ

    Q: Why are you guys doing this show?
    A: For a few reasons:
            1. It's our tenth anniversary and we want to do something special
            2. Nothing like this has ever been done in the Philadelphia area
            3. It's going to be lots of fun.and a test of endurance
     
    Q: Is it really going to go on for 24 hours?  Nonstop?
    A: Yes.  If all goes as planned, it should be nonstop movies, shorts, and
    trailers for the full 24 hours.
     
    Q: So how many full length films will you actually be screening?
    A: Thirteen, most likely.
     
    Q: Thirteen movies?  Isn't that...y'know....kind of insane?
    A: Yes.  Completely
     
    Q: When is it happening?
    A: The show will start on Saturday October 27th at 12 noon.  It will end on Sunday October 28th at approximately 12 noon.  Tickets will be onsale at 11am on the 27th.
     
    Q: Where is the show taking place?
    A: The International House at University of Pennsylvania, 3701 Chestnut
    Street, Philadelphia.
      
    Q: How much does it cost to get into this show?
    A: Tickets for the marathon are only $20.  This is a very expensive program for us to put together, but as a "thank you" to our audience, we're keeping the ticket price as low as possible.  That's less than $1 per hour of entertainment!
     
    Q: Can I buy my tickets in advance?

    Q: When and how can I purchase tickets for the show?

    A: Advance tickets are now on sale at TicketWeb. Click on this link and scroll to the bottom of the page:

    http://www.ticketweb.com/user?region=penn&query=schedule&venue=intlhouse;

    tickets can also be purchased at the International House beginning one hour before showtime on October 27.

     
    Q: What if I plan to come late or only stay for a few movies-can I get in at a reduced rate?
    A: Sorry, but tickets are still $20 whether you plan on staying for the
    entire 24 hours or just a few hours.
     
    Q: Can I watch a few films, leave, then come back later?
    A: Yes.  All audience members will receive a wristband and also a handstamp to verify that you have paid your $20.  Just be sure to keep your wristband and your stamp visible so that if you go out for a while and come back later, you'll have proof that you have already paid & will be allowed re-entry to the theater.
     
    Q: What if I wash my hands and accidentally wash off the handstamp?
    A: Don't wash the top of your hand.
     
    Q: Okay, here's the big question: what movies are you going to show?
    A: It's a secret.
     
    Q: Why aren't you announcing what movies are playing?
    A: Again, for a few reasons:
            1. It adds an element of surprise
            2. It allows us to adjust our playlist of movies if we come across      something unique shortly before the show
     
    Q: Well, I'm not paying $20 for any show that doesn't tell me what movies I'll be watching.
    A: That's not a question.
     
    Q: Who are you, Alex Trebek?  Fine, I'll rephrase it.why should I come to
    this show if I don't know what's playing?
    A: Because the movies we're showing are all really good.  Really.  You have to trust us.
     
    Q: Why should I trust you?
    A: If you look at the list of movies we've shown over the last ten years,
    you'll see we've shown some of the greatest horror films of all time. You
    know what we have access to.  When we say we're showing really good films, we mean it.  This is one of the coolest film combos we've ever done, and a great way to celebrate Halloween weekend.  And at only $20, it's a bargain even if you only stay for a few movies!
     
    Q: Can you give us any hints as to what's playing?
    A:  I can say this: the lineup will be a combination of films we've shown
    before and other titles we've never screened.  The majority of the titles
    could be considered fan favorites, but we have some really exciting rarities
    as well.  The films are primarily from the 1970s & 1980s.  You'll get a
    little of everything: zombies, slashers, classic monsters, exploitation,
    extreme gore and extreme campiness.  Our primary rule in selecting the films for the lineup was that we wanted every single title to be gory or goofy action packed fun, and I think we've succeeded.
     
    Q: Are you selling food at this show?
    A:  The I-House does not have a concession stand, per se, but there are
    vending machines and a small café in the lobby, and  there's a Wawa right
    down the street.  There are also a number of nearby restaurants if you want to sneak out for lunch, dinner, etc. or pick up a pizza to bring back to the show.  You are welcome to bring in outside food as long as you do not make a mess and you clean up after yourself.
     
    Q: Will there be other stuff to buy?
    A: As always, Diabolik DVD will have a table set up throughout much of the
    show.  We should also have a new 10th anniversary commemorative t-shirt for sale.
     
    Q: Besides money for tickets and DVDs and t-shirts, what else should I bring to the show?
    A: If you're in for the long haul, a pillow and blanket or sleeping bag
    might make for a cozier viewing experience at 3am.  Also plan on bringing
    lots of quarters to fill the parking meter periodically if you drive to the
    show.  Perhaps some caffeine pills or Red Bull would come in handy.  And
    Tylenol.
     
    Q: This show sounds like a cool idea.  Is there anything I can do to help
    with the marathon?
    A: Tell your friends.  Most of the people who discover Exhumed Films do so
    via word of mouth.  This is obviously a very expensive undertaking for us,
    so the more people who attend, the greater the likelihood of our breaking
    even!  You might also consider passing out some fliers in your area to help
    spread the word.

    Exhumed Films presents a night of TEENAGE REBELLION!

    ROCK 'N' ROLL HIGH SCHOOL
     
    Produced by genre giant Roger Corman, Rock 'n' Roll High School is a
    throwback to 1950s teen centered music films like Rock Rock Rock, though obviously updated to reflect the musical scene of the late '70s.  PJ Soles (Halloween) plays Riff Randall, a rebellious student at Vince Lombardi High School who is obsessed with punk rock legends The Ramones.  Riff meets her heroes, writes a song for them, and enlists their help in overthrowing the evil school principal Miss Togar, who has embarked upon a campaign to rid the community of rock music.  A highly ridiculous and enjoyable comedy That features Corman film regulars like Mary Woronov, Paul Bartel, and the immortal Dick Miller.
    Dir. Allan Arkush \ US \ 1979 \ 35mm \ 93 min. \ Color
     
     
    SATAN'S CHEERLEADERS
     
    The janitor at a local high school is actually the scout for a coven of
    Satanists on the lookout for a virgin to sacrifice. One day he kidnaps the cheerleading squad to use for their rituals. However, unbeknownst to the devil-worshipers, one of the cheerleaders is actually a witch, and has plans of her own for the Satanists.  Directed by the infamous exploitationer Greydon Clark (Black Shampoo, Without Warning) and featuring once respectable actors like John Ireland, John Carradine, and Yvonne De Carlo.
    Dir. Greydon Clark \ US \ 1977 \ 35mm \ 92 min. \ Color
     
     
    JOY STICKS
     
    Our final feature of the night is another doozy from the irrepressible
    Greydon Clark.  When a top local businessman and his two bumbling nephews try to shut down the town's only video arcade, arcade employees and patrons fight back.  Not Academy Award material to say the least, but if you're a fan of 1980s arcade games, this film has some sweet footage of games like "Satan's Hollow" and "Pac-Man" in action.  Starring a slumming Joe Don Baker and Jon Gries (Monster Squad, Napoleon Dynamite) as punk
    rocker/nemesis King Vidiot.

    Saturday July 21st, 2007

    $12 - Showtime 7:30pm Doors / 8:00pm Show

    Exhumed Films presents a John Carpenter triple feature!

    THE THING

    Arguably Carpenter's greatest film (the only other real challenger being Halloween), The Thing is a remake of the 1951 sci-fi classic in name only.

    A group of scientists stationed at an Antarctic research facility must confront a shape-shifting alien life form that kills and assumes the identity of other living creatures.  The sense of paranoia and madness Carpenter achieves is surpassed only by Rob Bottin's ground breaking visual effects, which are just as impressive 25 years later and stand as testament that CGI cannot always trump a little liquid latex and Karo syrup.

    Kurt Russell leads a stellar cast that also includes Wilford Brimley and Keith David.

    Dir. John Carpenter \ US \ 1982 \ 35mm \ 109 min. \ Color

    PRINCE OF DARKNESS

    In many respects this is almost a remake of Carpenter's own Assault on Precinct 13, but with the marauding criminal gangs replaced by possessed homeless people and a big vat of satanic Hawaiian Punch.  Donald Pleasance (second only to Kurt Russell on Carpenter's list of favorite actors) is a priest who discovers a bizarre green fluid stored in the basement of an old church and fears it might actually be the antichrist in liquid form.or something like that.  Rather than call the Vatican or the army or Ghostbusters, he seeks assistance from a bunch of graduate students and a math professor.

    Bad move, Donald.bad move.  Also features Victor Wong (hooray!) and Alice Cooper (huh?).

    Dir. John Carpenter \ US \ 1987 \ 16mm \ 102 min. \ Color

    ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK

    Thought Snake Plisken was dead?  Think again!! Kurt Russell plays Snake, a dangerous con who is forced by penalty of death to retrieve the president of the US (played by none other than Donald Pleasance) whose plane has crashed into NY City – now a maximum security prison and home to the deadliest criminals on earth!!  Featuring an all star cast of cult actors including Lee Van Cleef, Ernest Borgnine, and Isaac Hayes as the Duke, John Carpenter’s futuristic western set a new standard of tough guy action in the 80s and has never gone out of style.

    BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA
     
    Cult favorite John Carpenter took a break from his trademark horror films in
    the mid 1980s and experimented with combining cinematic genres & styles. Hefollowed the successful 1984 Sci-Fi/Romance Starman with Big Trouble in Little China, an amalgam of action, fantasy, comedy, and kung-fu.  The
    result is an entertaining mishmash revolving around one of Carpenter's
    most colorful antiheroes, gruff trucker/ladies man/butt kicker Jack Burton
    (played by frequent Carpenter collaborator Kurt Russell).  Burton tries to
    help his friend Wang regain his fiancé, who has been kidnapped by an
    ancient evil magician; together they battle monsters, demons, and kung-fu
    masters in San Francisco's Chinatown.  Also starring Kim Cattrall, James
    Hong, and the incomparable Victor Wong.
    Dir. John Carpenter \ USA \ 1986 \ 35mm \ 82 min. \ Color
     
    SEVEN BROTHERS MEET DRACULA
     
    Released as Legend of the Seven Golden Vampires in the UK (arguably a better title, though not nearly as fun), this was a co-production between the venerable horror pioneers Hammer Films and Hong Kong's leading kung-fu producers, Shaw Brothers Studios.  The 1970s saw Hammer ditching their traditional Victorian era gothic horrors for more adventurous, genre
    bending fare (see Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter or Dr. Jekyll & Sister Hyde as evidence); this first ever "kung-fu vampire movie" continues the trend.
    Hammer/Amicus Films stalwart Roy Ward Baker directs Peter Cushing in his
    fifth-and final-appearance as Professor Van Helsing.  This time, Van
    Helsing is teaching at a university in China where he teams up with a
    kung-fu master to battle seven vampire overlords and their zombie army.
    While Seven Brothers Meet Dracula does have a cult following, critics of
    thefilm say that the movie is nonsensical and slowly paced.  But those people are jerks.
    Dir. Roy Ward Baker \ Hong Kong, UK \ 1974 \ 35mm \ 83 min. \ Color
     
    KID WITH THE GOLDEN ARM
     
    The "purest" kung-fu film of our triple-feature, Kid with the Golden Arm
    is a classic directed by the great Chang Cheh, who produced some of the most entertaining martial arts films at Shaw Brothers during the 1970s and
    early 1980s. Known for his graphic yet cartoon-like violence and memorable characters, Cheh's follow-up to the outrageous Five Deadly Venoms is a non-stop kung fu ride filled with just about everything a fan could want.
    An escort service (no, not that kind of escort service.) is hired to
    protect a large sum of gold being transported to aid famine victims. But a
    gang, led by the infamous Golden Arm, is bent on taking the treasure.
    Which clan's kung-fu will reign supreme?

    Exhumed Films Presents:

    Saturday, Feb 17: MY BLOODY VALENTINE and CANDYMAN

    Exhumed Films presents a double dose of Romance Gone Awry!

    MY BLOODY VALENTINE-- a well-regarded slasher from the early '80s that once again proves no holiday is safe from homicidal maniacs.  A seemingly innocent Valentine's Day dance inadvertently leads to a mine explosion and the deaths of several coal miners (isn't that always the way?).  Twenty years later, a group of youngsters decides to organize the town's first Valentine's dance since the horrible accident.  Unfortunately, they are stalked by a pick axe wielding, gas mask wearing killer who takes offense to their insensitivity.  Could this masked madman be the lone survivor of the explosion, or is something else afoot?

    Dir. George Mihalka \ Canada \ 1981 \ 35mm \ 91 min. \ Color

    CANDYMAN-- for a gruesome horror film, this has quite a pedigree: it's produced by famed horror writer/director Clive Barker (Hellraiser), written & directed by art house filmmaker Bernard Rose (Immortal Beloved, Anna Karenina), and features a score by Phillip Glass.  Loosely based on one of Barker's short stories, Candyman tells the tale of graduate student Helen Lyle (Virginia Madsen), who is writing a thesis paper on urban legends.  In an inner-city ghetto she hears the legend of "Candyman", a vengeful spirit who materializes and slaughters anyone brave enough (or foolish enough) to repeat his name five times.  When a series of murders takes place in the city, it seems as if the titular boogeyman might be the culprit.  Even worse is the possibility that Helen herself is actually the reincarnation of Candyman's long lost love.  Her boyfriend's back, and she's gonna be in trouble.....

    Dir. Bernard Rose \ USA \ 1992 \ 35mm \ 99 min. \ Color

    SCREAMERS - Originally titled Island of the Fishmen, American distributors wisely changed the name of this Italian import to something a little less absurd.

Hmm. Guess the original title was better after all.

    $10 - Showtime 8:00pm

    Dir. Fred Dekker \ USA \ 1986 \ 35mm \ 89 min. \ Color    
     
    THE MONSTER SQUAD: Director Fred Dekker's loving tribute to Universal Monster movies and "Our Gang" style kids comedy has become a '80s classic on par with the similarly themed The Goonies.

The kids then vow to use their monster movie knowledge to battle the forces of evil.

    $12 - Showtime 8:00pm

    Dir. Herb Freed \ USA \ 1981 \ 35mm \ 96 min. \ Color      
     
    WACKO: Just as Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer spawned the Scary Movie franchise, so too did the '80s slasher boom give birth to several silly spoofs. Wacko is about as goofy as they get: Joe Don Baker stars as an inept police officer convinced that there is a lawnmower-wielding murderer on the loose. Also features George Kennedy, Julia Duffy, and Andrew "Dice" Clay (!); directed by genre favorite Greydon Clark (Satan's Cheerleaders, Joysticks).

    Jim Van Bebber's
    Charlie’s Family (aka Manson Family)
    and
    Race with the Devil
    (70`s Satanic Action Film)

    Fifteen years in the making, THE MANSON FAMILY, formerly known as CHARLIE¹S FAMILY in film circles, is the second feature from Dayton filmmaker Jim Van Bebber. Van Bebber found a cult following in the late 80¹s with his feature DEADBEAT AT DAWN as well as for his short films and music videos for such bands as Skinny Puppy.

    A self-financed labor of love, the film's scope expanded over the years to become a multi-layered final word on the tragic events of August 9th & 10th 1969 as well as the impact those events continue to have on popular culture. The film combines detailed recreations of the Family members' lives, chronicling of the events on the Spahn Ranch that led to the Tate-LaBianca killings and contemporary jailhouse interviews with The Family as well as a chilling look at a group of Manson-obsessed, nihilistic punk teenagers. Connecting these narrative strands is a tabloid television journalist producing a special focusing on The Family. Stylistically, The Manson Family fuses classic grindhouse horror with an experimentalism rooted in the underground referencing the transcendent death trip of the Cinema of Transgression to Kenneth Anger's hallucinogenic occultism.
