Exhumed Films is pleased to return to the Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers to present the fourth edition of The Guilty Pleasures Marathon, our annual assault of cinematic insanity. For this year’s marathon we present some of the greatest 3-D films of all time, projected from original 35mm prints using state of the art technology! The 1970’s and 1980’s saw a resurgence of three-dimensional movies, particularly in the realm of genre cinema. Some of the most infamous and beloved 3-D titles in history were released during this era; the majority have not seen the light of the projector bulb in over 30 years, but they are ready to be re-discovered! We will spotlight a combination of famous films and extreme rarities from the era. Our day long endurance test will include the following:

George Romero’s original DEAD trilogy stands as one of the greatest achievements in horror movie history, and all three films are presented here on the same bill for a rare theatrical event. Join us to honor the art and influence of one of the finest filmmakers in the history of genre cinema.

EXHUMED FILMS & PHILAMOCA PRESENTS:
Paperbacks from Hell with Grady Hendrix
Saturday, October 7 at 7:30 PM @ PhilaMOCA
In the early Seventies, three books changed horror forever: ROSEMARY’S BABY, THE EXORCIST, and THE OTHER. The first horror novels to hit bestseller lists since 1940, they opened the floodgates for an avalanche of horror paperbacks to pour onto supermarket shelves throughout the Seventies and Eighties until SILENCE OF THE LAMBS slit the genre’s throat in the early Nineties. Writer Grady Hendrix delivers a mind-melting oral history of this now forgotten world of Nazi leprechauns, skeleton doctors, killer crabs, killer jellyfish, killer babies, pretty much killer everything. Prepare yourself for a tour of this long-lost universe of terror that lurked behind the lurid, foil-embossed, die-cut covers of…the Paperbacks from Hell!!!!
Copies of Grady’s new book, Paperbacks From Hell, will be on sale at the event.
TICKETS $10 advance, $12 day-of, Doors 7:00, Show 7:30
Presented by Exhumed Films and PhilaMOCA.

EXHUMED FILMS & GARAGEHOUSE PICTURES PRESENTS:
Frankenstein’s Bloody Terror in 3-D!!! with Dracula vs. Frankenstein and intro by Sam Sherman!
Saturday, December 9 at 8 PM – 11:59 PM
Lightbox Film Center
3701 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19104
The story behind FRANKENSTEIN’S BLOODY TERROR is legendary: in 1971, famed film producer Samuel Sherman’s Independent-International Pictures secured theatrical rights to distribute the Spanish werewolf movie MARK OF THE WOLFMAN — first in the long-running series of “El Hombre Lobo” films featuring Euro-horror superstar Paul Naschy — in the United States. Sherman also infamously retitled the movie FRANKENSTEIN’S BLOODY TERROR despite the fact that neither Dr. Frankenstein nor his monster actually appears in the film! FRANKENSTEIN’S BLOODY TERROR was enjoying a successful theatrical run in the states when distributor Samuel Sherman learned that the film was originally shot in 3-D, so he decided to strike up some 3-D prints for release in the U.S. The new version opened on a handful of Los Angeles screens, but difficulties with the projection lenses prompted Sherman to pull the screenings after a brief run. While the flat version of FRANKENSTEIN’S BLOODY TERROR continued to play drive-ins for years to come and eventually became a staple of TV “Creature Feature” programs, the 3-D prints of the movie vanished entirely and the stereoscopic version passed into legend.
Now, nearly half a century later, this faux Frankenstein favorite is finally being resurrected: though long assumed to be lost or destroyed, a search of the Independent International archives has turned up the original 3-D elements; a new 35mm print has been struck by Garagehouse Pictures and it will soon be touring the United States. Using state-of-the-art 3-D viewers and technology, audiences are finally able to view FRANKENSTEIN’S BLOODY TERROR as originally intended! Please join Exhumed as we present the Philadelphia premiere of this cult classic!
Samuel Sherman, legendary drive-in movie producer, director and president of Independent-International Pictures, will be in attendance to introduce the film.
