ON JULY 16TH, EXHUMED FILMS TAKES YOU TO THE THIRD-DIMENSION WITH AN AMAZING LINEUP OF 35MM PRINTS!
The folks at Exhumed Films continue to do us cinephiles a huge service with their latest event: 3-DEMENTIA! On Sunday, July 16th get to The International House in Philadelphia, PA, and strap yourselves in for five movies in 100% legit 3-D! (To clarify, the films will not be screened in red/blue anaglyph 3D! This is the real deal Vault Dwellers!)
The doors open at 11:00 AM (get there earlier to secure a good seat), and the projector will fire up at noon, starting with....
FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 3D (1982)
Jason picks himself up by the bootstraps after his defeat in the previous installment, and heads to Higgins Haven to hack up horny "teens" and stoners. Filled with eye-popping effects (literally!), FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 3D is a solid sequel that is probably most notable for having Jason don his trademark hockey mask for the first time.
Once Jason's reign of terror ends, I'll be entering unknown territory, because I've never seen any of the other films on the roster. (Not surprising since most of these are super rare!)
TREASURE OF THE FOUR CROWNS (1983)
J.T. Striker is a soldier of fortune that has been hired to recover a set of magical gemstones from four ancient crowns. Aided by a group of thieves, Striker battles a deadly cult to retrieve his prize, leading to a climax you apparently have to see to believe! Heavily inspired by RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, TREASURE OF THE FOUR CROWNS looks to be a fun adventure movie that I won't soon forget. (And holy hell, the soundtrack was composed by ENNIO MORRICONE!)
Directed by Worth Keeter (who will be in attendance!), this film takes place in the small town of Lake Lure. When a pack of experimental Rottweilers escapes from a nearby military installation, it's up to the local sheriff to protect the townsfolk from the murderous canines! I'm always down for some killer animal cinema, so this movie sounds like it is right up my alley!
HIT THE ROAD RUNNING (1983)
Feature #4 is another Worth Keeter vehicle! When Beau Jim Donner returns to his hometown, he ends up butting heads with a corrupt tycoon that has been buying up land and intimidating the locals. This of course leads to an abundance of car chases and crashes that should look pretty damned awesome in 3D! Heavily influenced by SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT (and to a lesser extent, THE DUKES OF HAZZARD), HIT THE ROAD RUNNING promises to be a smashing good time!
REVENGE OF THE SHOGUN WOMEN (1977)
After wowing the audience at the last Ex-Fest with DYNASTY, the Exhumed gang is delivering another classic martial arts film in startling 3D! After being assaulted and degraded by a gang of bandits, a group of women master the martial arts to seek revenge on their attackers!
Tickets are still on sale for 3-DEMENTIA, but are going fast. So if this sounds like something you'd love to attend, GET YOUR TICKETS NOW, and maybe I'll see you there!
Also, if you do make it to this event, you will have the ability to purchase early-bird tickets for Exhumed Film's 24-Hour Horrorthon, which takes place in late October! Keep that in mind because the Horrothon always sells out!
