As some of you know, in November I move from the Philadelphia area to Austin Texas. If you were to ask me what I’d miss the most, I’d first say my friends and family, but a close second would be the film screenings in the area. The greatest of these is Exhumed Films’ 24-Hour Horrorthon, a day’s worth of horror movies screened toward the end of October to celebrate Halloween. When Exhumed Films announced the first event back in 2007, I was excited, but I also marvelled at the feat ahead for both the programmers and the viewers. Now, here I am, seven years later and considering flying back every October for these.
Tonight will be Exhumed’s seventh Horrorthon and the final one I’ll be attending as a Philadelphia resident.
For today’s Halloween celbration, dig last year’s poster created by the great Justin Miller.
Day 5 of Exhumed Films’ Tele-Terror Fest featured a Richard Matheson-written thriller, Kirk Douglas as a jealous maniac, and a film helmed by Wes Craven and starring The Exorcist‘s Linda Blair.

Day 4 of Exhumed Films’ Tele-Terror Fest featured William Shatner, a Gene Roddenberry-penned occult detective film, one of the best entries of the festival, Where Have All the People Gone? and a straight-to-TV sequel to Rosemary’s Baby.

Day two of Exhumed Films’ Tele-Terror Fest continued with cult favorite Bad Ronald and the similar, but far more bizarre, Crawlspace.
