Horror at Party Beach!

If there's one thing I love, it's a movie that forgets what it's about twenty minutes in.  "This Island Earth" veers into left field almost immediately when Cal arrives at the aliens' ranch home.  "Satan's Cheerleaders" operates under the mistaken impression that we'd rather watch character actor John Ireland and a bedraggled John Carradine bumble around trying to keep the secrets of their satanic cult after teasing us with a sexy movie about slutty cheerleaders.  "Horror at Party Beach" may be one of the best examples of this, though; it starts as a solid beach party movie: teenagers frolicking around on the beach, telling stupid one-liners, making out and dancing.  This doesn't last, though.  The movie has only just firmly established that Frankie and Annette would be perfectly comfortable around the kids in the movie -- if significantly better actors -- when a girl wanders off and gets killed by a monster, which immediately multiplies and starts terrorizing the town.  Featuring the music of the Del-Aires, which I think you'll admit is actually really catchy.

The movie also features a unique twist: a stealth protagonist.  The first segment of the movie follows the first victim, only to reveal the actual main character is either her crappy boyfriend, or the stick-in-the-mud homebody who nevertheless wanted to steal that crappy boyfriend from her.  It's a little unclear; I vote for the girl, if only because all of her lines are dubbed for some reason.

We meet at the Irish American Heritage Center in the Fifth Province, the center’s pub located on the first floor (look for a group of folks wearing name badges). Sometimes there will be an event charging money at the door; that's not us.  You're welcome to walk past them and come find us.  The evening starts at 6:00p for dinner/drinks in the pub (menu consists of burgers, fish & chips, sandwiches, and Irish fare such as Sheperd's Pie). At around 7:30p, we go to the viewing room to watch the show. For those of you driving, the center offers plenty of free parking in its lot. If you still can't find us, go ahead and call or send me a text message at[masked] (after 6 PM on the day of only, please; there are several avenues to contact me every other day of the month).

I charge an event fee of $5 to help recoup costs for room rental, A/V equipment, DVDs and a personalized, preprinted name badge. If your guest(s) also would like a personalized preprinted name badge, please put his/her name into the comments section of your RSVP.

    Ooh, bet you that would be good with drawn butter. Of course, I'd eat my own head with drawn butter.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
