Exhumed Films presents a double feature of forgotten grindhouse greatness!

Gang Wars (a.k.a. The Devil’s Express)
1976 / 35mm / Dir. Barry Rosen / 82 min.

Gang Wars/The Devil’s Express is an insane genre mash-up: a Blaxploitation/Horror/Kung-Fu absurdist masterpiece that could only exist in the exploitation heyday of the 1970s. Warhawk Tanzania (who, incidentally, possesses the greatest name in human existence) plays an American martial artist that inadvertently resurrects an ancient zombie/demon/monster while on a trip to China. The creature follows Tanzania back to New York City, where it wreaks havoc in the subway system. Oh, and to further complicate matters, there’s also a gang war brewing between some of the toughest dudes in town. It’s up to the local police force and Warhawk himself to put a stop to both the gang violence and the demonic creature stalking the subways. But can they do it before the city explodes? A lost gem that truly must be seen to be believed…and keep an eye out for NYC performance artist/Letterman guest/weirdo icon Brother Theodore (star of the eX-Fest favorite Gums!) as a crazy clergyman.

Plus…

Death Promise
1977 / 35mm / Dir. Robert Warmflash / 95 min.

What’s more dangerous than a “Death Wish”? A DEATH PROMISE! It’s a class struggle of epic proportions as the residents of a New York tenement stand up against the greedy slum lords who are trying to demolish their homes. When his father is killed by the cartel of evil landlords, Charley uses his martial arts skills to exact vengeance for dad’s death! Death Promise has everything an exploitation fan could ask for: groovy ‘70s fashion, a funky soundtrack, kung-fu, violence, nudity, and even killer rats. Don’t miss your chance to catch this cult rarity on the big screen!
