This year for WEEKEND OF TERROR VII, Exhumed Films and the Mahoning Drive-In Theater would like to remind all of you to be careful out there on the roads. We know most of you come from great distances to enjoy our shows, and it’s very important to obey traffic laws, be courteous to other drivers, and never, ever pick up strangers. Avoid dangerous situations, as it can be HELL ON THE HIGHWAYS!
On Sept. 23-25, rev your engines up for three nights of fright in the fast lane! Seven films of grueling, grinding terror at top speed! Watch out for Satanists, Demonic Possessions, Psycho Killers, and Vehicular Revenge From Beyond The Grave! All presented in 35mm at 24 frames per second!
