Double-Feature Movie Social: Brains!

We're back with a restaurant venue! The Pizza Bistro (Burnet Rd location) has a great private room with a big-screen TV, a projector and lots of room. The restaurant will not charge us a fee for the room, but they do expect us to spend $, so please plan on eating something. It's a full-service restaurant but they are prepared to give us separate checks.
The title suggests zombie movies, but it's really an excuse to show you all The Brainiac (El Barón del Terror), the ridiculous Mexican horror movie from the 60's:

I'm taking the liberty of setting it as one of our two movies, but we will have time for a second one, so please bring your good-bad movies, of whatever genre and we will vote on them. If you want to stick with the brains theme, there are plenty of related choices aside from zombie movies (Brain from Planet Arous , Atomic Brain, etc.), but again, it's wide open.
I will bring a DVD player.

      Sorry about that, K. My two foot long proboscis has a mind of its own. Want a beer?

      Juan, man. Did the suave moves of Vitelius teach you nothing? Suggest grabbing a beer BEFORE slurping their brain juices. Practice. You can do this. :-} -- See ya at SciFi night!

    Hey ya'll. Tomorrow I'm going to an 11am showing of Bad Words at the Cinemax Tinseltown 20 off of I35N. Certain to be a classic.

    By the way did anybody pick up any extra sets of composite cables? I can't seem to find the component cables (red, yellow, white) or composite (red, green, blue) that I brought with me at the moment. They may be hiding in my car somewhere...

    March 30, 2014

    • Kedar H.

      I've got them, get them to you at Leah's... I think you're going, right?

      March 30, 2014

    • Maureen M.

      Great, thanks! Yes, I will be there.

      March 30, 2014

    Horrible... I'm still not scared of spiders, if it'd been giant roaches ("water bugs") that would've been a different story.

    4 · March 30, 2014

    • Juan W.

      That's it! Sarah and I were chatting about that one. Alright kids, who's got it. It's homicidal roach time.

      I went out after the event and tried to spread the word. A ton of haters out there, tried to shit on my parade. One dude whispered, "geek piece of shit." He didn't think I heard him. So I jumped into his face and screamed, "YOUR MOM!" He shrank back. It was funny as hell. I live by two mottos. My favorite: It's not who is going to let me, it's who's going to stop me!

    I had a fun time, and a lot of laughs. Thanks again to Sam for planning and organizing, and to everyone for coming out. Great to see so many new faces, and sorry that I didn't get to talk to every one of you! I hope you guys can make it out to the one that Sam setup for next month. This was our first time there, so I think it went down pretty well all things considered. I'm pretty confident that the technical issues we had will be taken care of, so it should be even better. FYI: I got Maureen's and Dylan's cables, I'll return them when I get a chance.

    Thanks everyone for coming out! Come back for the next one on April 26th; we hope to have a better sounds system set up then.

    Running late and unfortunately will not be able to bring my VCR...

    March 29, 2014

    • Kedar H.

      It's alright. I packed mine at the last second just in case. Bring your VHS tapes.

      1 · March 29, 2014

  • Sam

    Are there any other movies anyone is bringing? I was going to set up a Survey Monkey or a Meetup group poll, but I don't have many choices other than Valerie's and mine. If you all prefer we can vote the night of as we usually do.

    March 24, 2014

    • Sarah C.

      hahaha, I'll bring them, then. Looking forward to it!

      March 28, 2014

    • Fletcher W.

      Let me be clear... my mouth is a lemon, not an orange.
      Sarah, I didn't mean to suggest that you not bring any of your movies, I was just saying that kingdom of the spiders in particular might be less terrible than some of the other options. I think everyone should bring whatever they think think would be good.

      1 · March 29, 2014

    Pizza Bistro has no DVD player. Can someone please bring one? I thought I had one but don't (other than the PS3). The person who answered said the TV has A/V input as well as HDMI.

    March 24, 2014

    • Sam

      OK I'll bring my PS3. They do have Wi-Fi

      March 24, 2014

    • Maureen M.

      Alright, any requests for av cables or equipment I should bring?

      March 29, 2014

  • Valerie M.

    OH SHIIII I'M GONNA BRING BRAIN DAMAGE. It's bad horror that's self-aware in the vein of CHOPPING MALL and other 80s horror movie greats, not sure if that is "bad" enough but it's certainly weird and entertaining enough. From the guy who made "BASKET CASE" if any of you like that movie.

    • Sarah C.

      I love Henenlotter's stuff!

      1 · March 24, 2014

  • Valerie M.

    Also do I need to bring a VCR cause I don't mind... I feel bad making Kedar bring one every time

    March 4, 2014

    • Maureen M.

      I can also bring a VCR if we ever need another backup or want to VCR duel sometime. Hmmm...I'm not sure if I have a HDMI to composite adapter but I l know I have a DVI to composite adapter.

      March 22, 2014

    • Sam

      I'll call pizza Bistro and ask what hookups they have

      March 22, 2014

  • Rw

    I'm new to this BUT y'all look like you got it figured out. Can't wait to see the best of the worst chosen by the best!

    2 · March 4, 2014

  • Diane C.

    Is it ok if I come in a little late?

    March 4, 2014

    • Sam

      Sure, no problem. We'll be glad to have you. :-)
