John Carpenter has inspired countless musicians since his earliest minimal, synth-based film scores. The themes to his features like Assault on Precinct 13, Halloween, and Escape from New Yorkhave remained instantly recognizable since he penned them nearly four decades ago. In February 2015, Sacred Bones released his first solo record of non-soundtrack music, Lost Themes, to overwhelming critical success. The Horror Master proved that not only could he perfectly score his own films - he could also score the movies in your mind.
Exhumed Films presents: MASTERS OF ITALIAN HORROR!

Sunday, July 31 at 12 PM
International House Philadelphia
3701 Chestnut St, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19104

It will be a very "Black Sunday" indeed on July 31, when Exhumed Films presents five frightening features from Italy's greatest directors: Argento! Bava! Fulci! Lenzi! Martino! Join us as we celebrate the undisputed maestros of murder and mayhem by screening some of their finest films!

SUSPIRIA
1977 / 35mm / Dir. Dario Argento / 92 min.
A young dancer studying abroad in Germany suspects that her ballet school is actually home to an ancient evil. Argento's masterpiece is both beautiful and horrifying, and has lost none of its impact nearly forty years later.

EYEBALL
1975 / 35mm / Dir. Umberto Lenzi / 91 min.
A mysterious red caped killer stalks a group of American tourists and murders them in the most gruesome way possible: by gouging out their eyes! The prolific Lenzi here turns in an exciting, rarely screened giallo which manages to be terrifying while also displaying a satiric sense of humor.

THE BLACK CAT
1981 / 35mm / Dir. Lucio Fulci / 92 min.
A psychic who can commune with the dead and control the minds of animals uses a black cat to exact vengeance upon his enemies. While Edgar Allan Poe may have been rolling in his grave, Fulci surprisingly produced a subtle and impressive film that is more gothic and less gory than his other 1980s genre entries.

BARON BLOOD
1972 / 35mm / Dir. Mario Bava / 90 min.
A young man in search of his family history inadvertently resurrects a cursed ancestor who goes on a brutal killing spree. Bava's unparalled stylistic flourishes are evident in one of his most satisfying supernatural shockers.

TORSO
1973 / 35mm / Dir. Sergio Martino / 92 min.
This infamously violent flick is arguably one of the greatest giallos of all time. A masked murderer stalks a group of college coeds (including the gorgeous Suzy Kendall) and follows them to a secluded house in the country; there, he begins picking off the girls in a most brutal manner. The influence of Martino's work can be clearly seen in later slasher films such as HALLOWEEN and FRIDAY THE 13TH.
