    Exhumed Films is proud to present five of the craziest films we've ever screened, back-to-back in 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 marathon or double feature screenings. 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.

    -Exhumed Films Presents: Cannibal Carnage!
    Thursday, August 7-
    Special weeknight screening! International House Philadelphia7:00pm
    start time


    "The greatest cannibal film of them all and the one that started it all!"
    On the 13th anniversary of EF's North American premiere of the restored CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST (and in anticipation of the upcoming Blu-Ray release) comes this encore screening of the film, paired up with the movie responsible for kick starting the most notoriously repugnant sub-genre in movie history!

    CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST
    1980 / 35mm / Dir. Ruggero Deodato / 95 min.

    Love it or loathe it, Ruggero Deodato's notorious cannibal shocker is still as potent today as it was when it was made. A group of documentary filmmakers heads to the "Green Inferno" to film the natives, but their techniques anger the cannibals, and the crew soon discovers that this may be their last film. Told in found footage style years before THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT, CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST is exploitation filmmaking at its most challenging, and a movie that will undeniably leave you breathless.


    MAN FROM DEEP RIVER (aka SACRIFICE!)
    1972 / 35mm / Dir. Umberto Lenzi / 93 min.

    The Italian cannibal genre started with this early gem from Umberto Lenzi, who later went on to make the notorious CANNIBAL FEROX (aka MAKE THEM DIE SLOWLY). Putting an exploitation twist on the Richard Harris film A MAN CALLED HORSE, a photographer travels to the Amazon only to be captured by cannibals and, through a series of bizarre initiation trials, inducted as a member of the tribe. Basically inventing all of the tropes for the entire genre, MAN FROM DEEP RIVER presents both a compelling story and the shocking violence that you have come to expect from Italian grindhouse cinema.

    WARNING: THESE FILMS CONTAIN SHOCKING SCENES OF GRAPHIC VIOLENCE AND ARE NOT FOR THE FEINT OF HEART OR THOSE EASILY OFFENDED-VIEWER DISCRETION IS STRONGLY ADVISED!
    August 23 2014: Exhumed Films presents a double feature of Underrated Science-Fiction Films!Doors at 7:30 pm, Show at 8:00pm - Admission $15
    International House Philadelphia, 3701 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia
    STAR TREK III: THE SEARCH FOR SPOCK (30th anniversary screening)
    1984 / 35mm / Dir. Leonard Nimoy / 105 min.
    STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN was one of the biggest box office hits of 1982, so Paramount was anxious to quickly ramp up a sequel. Although Trek fans generally loved KHAN, the film's decision to kill off Leonard Nimoy's Mr. Spock was a controversial one, to say the least. As its title implies, STAR TREK III: THE SEARCH FOR SPOCK focuses on Admiral James T. Kirk (William Shatner) and the crew of the Enterprise as they attempt to retrieve the body of their fallen comrade. However, they run afoul of a cruel Klingon commander (BACK TO THE FUTURE's Christopher Lloyd) who plots to steal the rejuvenating secrets of the planet Genesis for his own nefarious purposes. While not as lucrative as either STAR TREK II or the oddly light-hearted sequel STAR TREK IV: THE VOYAGE HOME, THE SEARCH FOR SPOCK is an intelligent, enjoyable, and underrated entry in the TREK film series.

    DUNE (30th anniversary screening)
    1984 / 35mm / Dir. David Lynch / 137 min.
    Frank Herbert's epic science-fiction novel DUNE was long considered unfilmable, though several directors-most famously, Alejandro Jodorowsky-tried to bring the classic to the screen during the 1970s, only to see their projects ultimately fall apart. But in 1984, acclaimed avant-garde filmmaker David Lynch followed his art-house successes ERASERHEAD and THE ELEPHANT MAN with an ambitious, big budget adaptation of Herbert's masterpiece. Lynch's DUNE is infamous in the realm of sci-fi films: it is a divisive movie, one that fans tend to either love or hate. Many of the film's perceived weaknesses can be traced to the fact that producer Dino DeLaurentis forced Lynch to excise over 45 minutes of footage in order to get the running time down to a more reasonable (but still lengthy) 2 hours and 17 minutes. But flawed or not, DUNE's story of political intrigue, galactic warfare and religious allegory set in the far-off future is visually stunning and truly epic in score. Featuring an impressive cast (Kyle MacLachlan, Jurgen Prochnow, Patrick Stewart, Max von Sydow, and Sting, among others) and an orchestral/rock hybrid score by the band Toto (!), DUNE is definitely an interesting film that deserves a second look.
