The Movie Crypt podcast’s fan-favorite event returns with “"Yorkiethon 4"! The annual 48-hour live charity broadcast hosted by filmmakers Adam Green (the Hatchet franchise, Frozen) and Joe Lynth (Mayhem, Wrong Turn 2: Dead End) to benefit Save A Yorkie Rescue will take place December 13th-15th on ArieScope.com.
This year's marathon will begin at 5pm PST and go straight through until Sunday 12/15 at 5pm PST, and will feature live commentaries with Green, Lynch and other special guest for Joe Begos' Bliss, Last Action Hero, Tales of Halloween, Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives, and more! A special two-hour pre-show kicks off the festivities at 3pm PST on December 13th.
"Our annual 'Yorkiethon' has become the most important thing that we do each year," says Green. "Not only do we help save a ton of dogs every Christmas but we see our Hollywood community selflessly come together to accomplish something good."
The list of artists that appear during each year’s 48 hour "Yorkiethon" is always kept as a surprise for listeners but previous guests have included comedian and filmmaker Bobcat Goldthwait (Willow Creek), actor and screenwriter Thomas Lennon ("Reno 911!"), filmmaker Joe Dante (Gremlins), musician Rudy Sarzo (Ozzy Osbourne), scream queen Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp), Kane Hodder (Friday the 13th franchise) and the late horror icon Sid Haig (The Devil's Rejects).
To date "Yorkiethon" has raised $75,000.00 for Save A Yorkie Rescue, a non-profit, volunteer dog rescue that specializes in rescuing abandoned and abused Yorkshire Terriers!
This year’s poster was created once again by Stephen Sharar and Joshua Werner from Source Point Press.
