Exhumed Films and International House Philadelphia Present:  R.A.D.* (*Robots Are Dangerous) Summer Sci-Fi Spectacular!


Sunday, July 19th – Doors 11:00 AM / Show 12:00 PM

TIckets: $25 general admission/$20 IHP members

*** PLEASE NOTE THAT TICKETS FOR THE 2015 24hr FEST WILL BE ON SALE AT THIS EVENT FOR TICKET HOLDERS ONLY!!***


If science-fiction movies have taught us anything, it’s that robots simply cannot be trusted. Join Exhumed Films for a full day of mechanical monster movies as we present the R.A.D. Marathon: five fantastic films that warn about the dangers of modern technology. We will be screening some of the most beloved sci-fi films of all time, along with a few EF faves:

ROBOCOP
1987 / 35mm / Dir. Paul Verhoeven / 102 min.

One of the biggest—and most glorious—surprises of ‘80s genre cinema was Paul Verhoeven’s ROBOCOP. What seemed from early T.V. spots to be a Charles Band/Empire Pictures-style cheesefest actually turned out to be a brilliant sci-fi satire. Peter Weller delivers a fantastic performance as Alex Murphy, a noble police officer in futuristic Detroit who is killed in the line of duty by a brutal drug dealing ring. But when Murphy is resurrected and put back on the streets as a cyborg crime fighter, he must battle for justice—as well as his soul. Nearly 30 years later, ROBOCOP has lost none of its edge or its luster.

THE VINDICATOR
1986 / 35mm / Dir. Jean-Claude Lord / 93 min.

The parallels between THE VINDICATOR and ROBOCOP are so strong that one might assume this Canadian sci-fi/horror cheapie is a rip-off of the better known Verhoeven film; however, THE VINDICATOR pre-dates ROBOCOP by at least a year, raising some interesting questions about who might be stealing from whom! A scientist who is horribly disfigured and presumed dead after a laboratory accident is revived with the help of a cybernetic bodysuit. Now half man and half machine, Dr. Lehman is on the run from a relentless bounty hunter (the one and only Pam Grier!) and plotting revenge against the corrupt corporation that stole his humanity! Featuring impressive makeup design by special effects wizard Stan Winston (THE TERMINATOR, PREDATOR), THE VINDICATOR is an overlooked but entertaining actioner.

CHOPPING MALL
1986 / 35mm / Dir. Jim Wynorski / 87 min.

Originally (and perhaps more appropriately) titled KILLBOTS, the Roger Corman production CHOPPING MALL is a goofy-but-fun twist on the stereotypical 1980s gore/slasher film. Rather than having a group of oversexed teens in the woods being stalked by a mindless maniac, here we have a group of oversexed teens in the mall being stalked by mindless machines. When a high tech security system malfunctions at a local mall, three robotic sentries are transformed into ruthless killers that target a group of teenaged mall employees enjoying an after-hours party. Look for cameos from Corman stalwarts and genre icons Dick Miller, Paul Bartel, and Mary Woronov, who reprise their most famous characters of Walter Paisley, Paul Bland, and Mary Bland, respectively.

MESSAGE FROM SPACE
1978 / 35mm / Dir. Kinji Fukasaku/ 106 min.

A long time ago in a studio far, far away, a group of Japanese filmmakers saw STAR WARS and realized they could probably earn a tidy profit by just making the same damn movie over again. Thus was born MESSAGE FROM SPACE, which clearly took more than a little inspiration from the George Lucas space fantasy. Once again we have a princess who teams up with wise older warriors and some cocky young space jockeys to defeat the robot-like armies of an evil galactic empire. Considering that the film also features a kindly robot sidekick, laser sword fights, and even a climactic “trench-run” dogfight sequence, it’s a miracle Lucas wasn’t instantly on the phone to his lawyers. Starring a slumming Vic Morrow (1990: THE BRONX WARRIORS, TWILIGHT ZONE: THE MOVIE) and the always awesome Sonny Chiba (THE STREET FIGHTER, KILL BILL).

BLADE RUNNER (original theatrical cut)
1982 / 35mm / Dir. Ridley Scott / 117 min.

What can be said about BLADE RUNNER that has not been said countless times before? This is the film that, while generally ignored upon its initial release, has come to be considered one of the greatest science fiction movies of all time; its influence can clearly be seen in everything from AKIRA to THE CROW to THE MATRIX. Harrison Ford stars as Rick Deckard, a police officer in the year 2019 whose job it is to track down and assassinate fugitive Replicants, artificial humans who are outlawed on planet Earth. Deckard’s task is complicated, however, when he finds himself falling in love with one of the robotic renegades. Shown here in its original 1982 release (featuring the controversial voiceover narration and studio demanded ending), BLADE RUNNER lives up to its reputation as a modern masterpiece.


Exhumed Films and Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers Present: The Guilty Pleasures Marathon, Part II
Saturday, August 22 at 1:00pm - 11:00pm

Alamo Drafthouse NYC Area
2548 Central Park Ave, Yonkers, New York 10710

RESERVED SEATING AVAILABLE HERE
http://drafthouse.com/movies/exhumed-films-guilty-pleasures-marathon-part-ii/nyc_area

A FULL MENU AND DRINKS ARE AVAILABLE AT THE SHOW!!!

Exhumed Films is thrilled to return to the Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers to present The Guilty Pleasures Marathon, Part II, an all-day assault of outrageousness. Here are five fan favorites, films that have had our audiences laughing, screaming, and cheering—sometimes all at once—when they played at our past marathons or double feature screenings in Philadelphia. These movies are all low-budget affairs, but because of earnest filmmaking, tongue-in-cheek performances, and sheer audacity, they rise above their limitations and epitomize everything that is joyous about genre cinema.

RADIOACTIVE DREAMS (30th anniversary screening)

1985 / 35mm / Dir. Albert Pyun / 98 min.

After the international success of George Miller’s films MAD MAX and THE ROAD WARRIOR, post-apocalyptic rip-offs were all the rage during the 1980s. Perhaps the oddest—and possibly most successful—of the lot is Albert Pyun’s RADIOACTIVE DREAMS, which populates its predictable post-nuclear wasteland with two unique protagonists. Phillip Hammer and Marlowe Chandler (John Stockwell and Michael Dudikoff) are two teenaged survivors of World War III who have spent their entire lives locked in a fallout shelter with nothing but pulp fiction detective novels to inform their understanding of the world. They venture out into the barren landscape, dressed in 1940s-era zoot suits and spouting hardboiled dialogue, to face a brave new world of cannibals, child gangsters, and mutant rodents. Featuring special effects by genre faves Greg Cannom, Kevin Yaegher, and The Chiodo Brothers, plus the official “Guilty Pleasures” theme song!


GANG WARS (aka THE DEVIL’S EXPRESS)
1976 / 35mm / Dir. Barry Rosen / 82 min.

GANG WARS/THE DEVIL’S EXPRESS is an insane genre mash-up: a Blaxploitation/Horror/Kung-Fu absurdist masterpiece that could only exist in the exploitation heyday of the 1970s. Warhawk Tanzania (who, incidentally, possesses the greatest name in human existence) plays an American martial artist that inadvertently resurrects an ancient zombie/demon/monster while on a trip to China. The creature follows Tanzania back to New York City, where it wreaks havoc in the subway system. Oh, and to further complicate matters, there’s also a gang war brewing between some of the toughest dudes in town. It’s up to the local police force and Warhawk himself to put a stop to both the gang violence and the demonic creature stalking the subways. But can they do it before the city explodes? A lost gem that truly must be seen to be believed--keep an eye out for NYC performance artist/frequent Letterman guest/weirdo icon Brother Theodore as a crazy clergyman.


REDNECK MILLER

1977 / 35mm / Dir. John Clayton / 85 min.

"Baby, you can take a lot of lovin', but I can only get killed once." That sort of brilliant philosophy gives you a sense of what you are in for with REDNECK MILLER, a sublime example of southern regional cinema at its finest. Geoffrey Land plays the titular character: a hard drinkin’, hard lovin' country boy disc jockey who locks horns with local drug dealer Supermac and his gang of ne'er-do-wells after a case of mistaken identity and missing motorcycles. Never released on home video in any format--don't miss this rare opportunity to witness Hicksploitation history.


BLOOD RAGE

1987 / 35mm / Dir. John Grissmer / 84 min.

Remember THE PARENT TRAP? The adorable Disney film about precocious identical twins who switch identities in order to fool their parents? Well, imagine if one of the kids was a psychotic serial killer who attacked some promiscuous teens and then blamed the murders on the saner sibling: that’s essentially the plot of BLOOD RAGE (aka NIGHTMARE AT SHADOW WOODS). Filmed in 1983 but not released until several years later, BLOOD RAGE tells the twisted tale of twins Todd and Terry—one good, one bad; one sensitive, one insane—and their long-suffering mother (“Mary Hartman” star Louise Lasser, who seems to have agreed to appear in this low-budget affair provided she could film all of her scenes from the comfort of her kitchen table). Years after the horrible double murder that resulted in the mistaken institutionalizing of innocent Todd, the homicidal Terry lashes out in a new bout of murderous rage. Little does he realize, though, the recently escaped Todd is on the way back to his childhood home in an attempt to stop his brutal brother and clear his name. Filled with gory set pieces and an unforgettable conclusion, BLOOD RAGE is an enjoyable slasher well worth re-discovering.


NINJA BUSTERS

1984 / 35mm / Dir. Paul Kyriazi / 85 min.

Definitely one of the rarest films of the event: never available online, on DVD, or VHS, and—to our knowledge—never released theatrically in the United States, NINJA BUSTERS is a wacky kung-fu comedy and a quintessential example of outsider art. Written by and starring a group of real life martial arts instructors who dreamed of being movie stars, NINJA BUSTERS tells the tale of two sad-sack goofballs (Eric Lee and Sid Campbell) who join a dojo in order to pick up girls and maybe learn a little self-defense in the process. After three years (!) of training, the duo runs afoul of a gang of weapons dealers and their army of trained ninja assassins. It’s up to our heroes and their kung-fu comrades to quit being cowards and to become NINJA BUSTERS! This previously lost movie (little to no information is available on IMDb) was forgotten and buried amidst hundreds of titles in an old film depot until unearthed by one of the members of Exhumed Films. It brought down the house at our recent eX-Fest marathon in Philadelphia, and now we’re spreading the gospel of NINJA BUSTERS by bringing it to the Alamo Yonkers! Fans of films like MIAMI CONNECTION and L.A. STREETFIGHTERS will not want to miss this one!

The Mahoning Drive-In Theater in Lehighton, Pennsylvania

Exhumed Films and the Mahoning Drive-In Theater Want You To-

GO APE!

Exhumed Films and the Mahoning Drive-In Theater proudly present one of the greatest sci-fi series of all time: all five PLANET OF THE APES films, together for one weekend! 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 and the Mahoning Drive-In Theater are recreating the classic "Go Ape" screenings with a rare presentation of all five movies shown over the course of two drive-in nights! 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! Come out and join us for this rare event! All humans are welcome!

All shows begin at dusk; gates open at 6pm. Tickets are $10 each night. Camping is available for an additional $10 per night.
