A classic in many senses; one of the first released on home video by Rhino, which makes it the first one that many newer MSTies ever watched! See! Wildlife poaching as you've never seen before! Hear! An indecipherable song ostensibly about cars, maybe? Taste! Smucker's Brand Raspberry Preserves! They taste like real fruit!
Originally conceived as a generic alien movie, then re-worked by its producers into an unauthorized sequel of sorts to a little-known film called "E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial," Pod People was released under several titles, including "Trumpy Tales" and "Extra-Terrestrial Visitors," but none more memorable than the Film Ventures release, "Pod People." Being a Film Ventures release, of course, PP features an opening and closing credits sequence with footage taken from an entirely different movie! Not for nothing, that movie, "The Galaxy Invader," was released last year as a VOD from Rifftrax ( http://www.rifftrax.com/ondemand/galaxy-inv...)!
The meetup will be at Pizza Pro's in DeKalb, and a representative (me) will be there at noon, so be sure to come hungry! I charge an event fee of $5 (active students will be given a two-dollar discount, so be sure to bring your current student ID) 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.
