Interior of 1996 program157 viewsBoy, now THIS is quite the double feature. I was deep into my "kill the audience" phase at this point, so I set out to program all the grim, disturbing films all in a row. Starting with Argento's DEEP RED, most of the audience actually slept through the following six hours. Ever the dutiful projectionist (er..video tech?) I would wake up, see everyone asleep, change tapes, start the next film and then go back to sleep. (Neff)

Promotional letter for 1997 Marathon159 viewsThis letter was sent out to my small mailing list, along with the flier. I guess this was technically the first press release I ever wrote. Such was the strange, insular little Marathon world I had built for myself. (Neff)
Flier for 1997 Marathon158 viewsSo in 1997, I went through a massive drive-in mania phase, during which I decided to move the Marathon back to my sister's basement and to program a drive-in-centric lineup. I billed the event as emanating from the Drexel North Drive-In, the world's first underground ozoner. Yes, throw your logical preconceptions out the door folks.
This would be the last (for now) video Horror Marathon I organized, as later that fall the Drexel came calling once again...
