This is a meetup group where horror, suspense, and fantasy fans in the Greater Nashville area can socialize and make new friends while enjoying a variety of related group activities. Appreciation of both domestic and foreign horror/suspense/fantasy/ movies will be a focus of this meetup. Trips to haunted houses, group readings and discussions of themed books/short stories, ghost tours in the area, performing arts, the paranormal, horror and fantasy conventions, attending writers' signings and presentations, television shows, and art shows are other meetups we've done. You are encouraged to suggest group activities. You may be asked to be event host when you suggest something or to help plan the event.
Some prospective members ask me if we only show slasher movies. The answer is no! We cover everything that could be considered horror, suspense, and fantasy. A look at our past meetups helps demonstrate that.
Movie meetups will be scheduled for silent classics up through new theatrical releases. Lovers of all of things horror including Vincent Price, Hitchcock, Freddy/Jason/Michael, vampires/Buffy/Twilight, zombies, werewolves, Italian giallo films, the 70s and 80s slashers, and the British Hammer films will find a home in this meetup. Fans of steampunk, science fiction "scifi", and fantasy will enjoy this meetup too as we'll do activities related to these genres! For example, we had a meetup for the War of the Worlds Radio Play. Some of the best episodes of The Twlight Zone, Doctor Who, and Star Trek had a horror theme. Please take the time to answer the profile questions to help plan meetups that are of the most interest to you.
Since we need an accurate count for some of the events we do and some meetups are held in members homes, new members are approved. If you sign up to attend an event, please update your rsvp if you can no longer attend. Also, even if the meetup shows full, please still sign up for the waiting list as members often do cancel.
When you attend a meetup, you are encouraged to program the event host's cell phone number into your phone or take it with you in case you have trouble finding the group or you have questions on things like directions. We get calls all the time and are happy to help. The event host's cell phone number should be on each meetup event or sent to you ahead of time. Also, Jane's downtown theatre can be hard to find so either print or make sure you can access the detailed directions to her theatre.
Please email me should you have any questions about this meetup.
