THE CINEDELPHIA FILM FESTIVAL presents
Thursday, April 11, 2013, 7:30 PM
THE MUTATIONS aka THE FREAKMAKER (1974) on 16mm
AN EXHUMED FILMS presentation.
Currently celebrating their 16th year of Philly-area genre film programming, Exhumed Films will be making their PhilaMOCA debut with a special 16mm presentation of THE MUTATIONS aka THE FREAKMAKER (1974).
Legendary Oscar-winning cinematographer Jack Cardiff (Black Narcissus, The Red Shoes) directs this story of a rogue biologist (Donald Pleasence, Halloween, Wake in Fright) who specializes in creating genetic plant/animal hybrids with the assistance of Doctor Who’s Tom Baker. Featuring a cast of real-life freaks and obvious nods to Freaks (1932) and Eyes Without a Face (1960), The Mutations is must-see viewing for connoisseurs of the bizarre.
Prior to the screening, Exhumed Films members will take the stage and subject themselves to a Q&A with audience members regarding the highs and lows of their 16 years worth of film programming, the effort that goes into independently screening films, and the reasoning behind their booking of prog rockers Asia back in 2003.
Advance tix are $10, no refunds or exchanges.
The Cinedelphia Film Festival is a Philly-centric celebration of Philly film running from April 4-27, 2013.
