Exhumed Films Presents: eX-Fest
2011! The Official FAQ
Q: So what’s the deal with Exhumed Films, anyway? Who are you
A: Exhumed Films is an independent cinema co-operative dedicated to
presenting 16mm and 35mm theatrical screenings of classic cult and
horror movies. We are entering our 14th year of presenting shows
in the Philadelphia & South Jersey area.
Q: What is eX-Fest all about?
A: eX-Fest is a chance for Exhumed Films to depart from our usual
programming, but still give our audience members a crazy cinematic
experience! Exhumed usually screens primarily horror films,
especially during our annual 24 Hour Horror-thon in October.
However, our tastes obviously run well past the horror genre, so
eX-Fest will provide us with an opportunity to showcase examples of
other cult/grindhouse type films which fall outside of the typical
Q: Where and when is the show taking place?
A: The eX-Fest will take place at the International House Philadelphia,
3701 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia. The date is Saturday, May 7,
from 11am to 11pm.
Q: How much are tickets to eX-Fest?
A: Tickets to eX-Fest are $20 per person, and can be purchased from our
Q: How does it all work? What exactly happens at eX-Fest?
A: The show starts at 11am on Saturday, May 7. We will then run
12 non-stop hours of horror and cult movies, shorts and trailers.
All movies, trailers, and shorts are projected on 16mm or 35 mm
film. Literally, the projector does not stop running at any point
during the marathon (unless, of course, it dies of exhaustion).
In all, we will be screening approximately 7 feature films, plus a
number of shorts/trailers.
Q: What kind of movies can I expect to see at the show?
A: The idea is to show obscure examples of 7 different genres of film
generally falling under the umbrella of "exploitation". Since we often
only get to screen horror films thanks to a tight schedule of available
dates, this is our chance to show you some really weird ass shit.
Possible genres include but are not limited to: science-fiction,
women-in-prison, western, war, cult comedy, giant monster, Euro crime,
kung fu, biker, blaxploitation, sexploitation, and so on.
Q: When and how can I purchase tickets for the Horror-thon?
A: Advance tickets are now on sale through the link above.
Judging from the popularity of our Horror-thon, it is almost guaranteed
that this show will sell out quickly. Do not be left out of the
fun! PLEASE NOTE: IF WE SELL OUT IN ADVANCE WE WILL NOT HAVE ANY
TICKETS AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR! WE SUGGEST YOU BUY YOUR TICKETS
ASAP TO AVOID BEING SHUT OUT!
Q: What if I plan to come late or only stay for a few movies—can I get
in at a reduced rate?
A: Sorry, but tickets are still $20 whether you plan on staying for the
entire 12 hours or just a few hours.
Q: Can I watch a few films, leave, then come back later?
A: Yes. All audience members will receive a wristband and also a hand
stamp to verify that you have paid your $20. Just be sure to keep your
wristband and your stamp visible so that if you go out for a while and
come back later, you'll have proof that you have already paid &
will be allowed re-entry to the theater.
Q: What if I wash my hands and accidentally wash off the hand stamp?
A: Don't wash the top of your hand.
Q: I know that for the Horror-thon, Exhumed does not reveal the titles
of the films you are screening. Does the same apply here?
A: Yes, the same rules apply: we will not reveal the titles of the
films we’ll be screening.
Q: How about a book of hints like we receive at the Horror-thon?
Will you give any sorts of clues as to what the films are?
A: No, not this time. No hints!
Q: Will you at least let us know what genres we can expect?
A: Maybe. That has yet to be decided. We’ll keep you posted.
Q: Will you be doing any encore presentations of films you showed
during previous Exhumed screenings?
A: No. All seven films will definitely be movies we have never
Q: Are you selling food at this show?
A: The cafe at the International House is sometimes open and serves
tea/coffee, bagels, sandwiches and more. They are not affiliated with
us. Down the street is a 24-hour Wawa. Also, catering will be
provided by Grindcore House at the show. There are a number of nearby
restaurants if you want to sneak out for lunch, dinner, etc. You
are welcome to bring outside snack food (chips, popcorn, etc.) into the
theatre provided you do not make a mess and you clean up after
yourself. Due to the nice, clean, comfy new seats, you CANNOT bring in
dinner foods, i.e., cheese steaks, pizza, scrapple, etc. Please
eat all meals at a restaurant or in the I-House lobby (which has tables
and chairs for your use) in order to keep the theatre clean.
Q: Will there be other stuff to buy?
A: As always, Diabolik DVD will have a table of cult, horror, &
obscure films for sale throughout much of the show. We will also
Exhumed Films t-shirts for sale and event posters designed by Justin
Q: What’s the deal with parking?
A: Discount parking for
International House patrons is now available at the Science Center
Parking Garage, 3665 Market Street. A special rate of $5.00 per
vehicle, effective after 4:00pm until 7:00am, Monday through Friday
plus all day Saturday & Sunday. Please bring your parking stub to
the International House Box Office to be stamped when attending events.
Q: This show sounds like a cool idea. Is there anything I can do to
help with the marathon?
A: Tell your friends. Most of the people who discover Exhumed Films do
so via word of mouth. This is obviously a very expensive undertaking
for us, so the more people who the greater the likelihood of our
breaking even! You might also consider passing out some fliers in your
area to help spread the word!
