Meehan's Madness: Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)

Meehan's movie madness returns for 2013!  With yet another Leatherface movie making it's way into theaters, it seemed appropriate to host a screening featuring the original 1974 film. If you're interested in attending, we usually order a pizza for dinner.

Details: The film follows a group of friends who fall victim to a family of cannibals while on their way to visit an old homestead. Although it was marketed as a true story to attract a wider audience and as a subtle commentary on the era's political climate, its plot is entirely fictional; however the character of Leatherface and minor plot details were inspired by the crimes of real-life murderer Ed Gein.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NEW DETAILS:

I still have a ton of beer, candy, vodka and cake from the last meetup so please, don't bring ANYTHING.

 

Even NEWER Details:

 

Mysteriously.....the beer supply has fallen short (I wonder how that happened).....down to a six pack or so. I don't drink beer, however, if you want to I advise you to BYOB. I won't be stopping the film for beer runs (okay well maybe if I'm asked nicely or I get bored). Also, THE CAKE IS A LIE.

    The host has gone mad with power. He doesn't even show the advertised film anymore, picking other movies instead, often at random that have little to do with horror. The meetup has devolved into total chaos, with many members jumping ship. We the people must stand against this iron fisted dictator; the line must be drawn here, this far, no farther!

    I'm giving Meehan five stars, because I know he doesn't want it. Lol. And that's what makes him a good event host. He doesn't care what you think. Lol. We watched Blue Velvet instead, which was an inspired choice. Hilarious flick!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
