1976--Let's Blast to the Past with Two Classics: SQUIRM and FOOD OF THE GODS!!!
• What we'll do SQUIRM (a beloved favorite of mine!): City slicker Mick (Don Scardino) makes his way to the swampy little town of Fly Creek, Ga., to see his girlfriend, Geri (Patricia Pearcy). After meeting up with her, Mick learns that the area has recently been ravaged by intense storms. More troubling is the appearance of large worms driven up through the soil by the downpours. But what Mick, Geri and the locals don't realize is that the electricity from downed power lines has caused the worms to go mad and develop a taste for human flesh. FOOD OF THE GODS: When a strange edible substance appears on a remote island, local farmer Mr. Skinner (John McLiam) and his wife (Ida Lupino) deem it a blessing and feed it to their farm animals. Soon other wildlife such as rodents and insects have eaten the food, which makes anything that consumes it grow in size. These gigantic beasts start terrorizing the island, with an athlete named Morgan (Marjoe Gortner) among those who are fighting for their lives against the gargantuan creatures. • What to bring • Important to know SQUIRM trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvlohQWDKR8 FOOD OF THE GODS trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=77KpoGDVkxk

    What we're about

    Public Group

    Welcome to NYC GRINDHOUSE (http://www.nycgrindhouse.com) - the only group on Meetup.com that deals specifically with the Exploitation Film Genre (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exploitation_film). We'll be watching old classics such as Russ Meyer's (http://www.rmfilms.com/) 'Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!' and Jack Hill's (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Hill) 'Coffy', the film that launched sexy Pam Grier (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pam_Grier) into the spotlight, as well as new Grindies like Tarantino's (http://www.tarantino.info/) 'Death Proof' and my recent favorite, 'MACHETE'!

    When summer comes, we'll take a few weekend road-trips to check out the few remaining DRIVE-INs (http://www.driveinmovie.com/NY/) in and around New York - the closest one is less than 2 hours drive from Midtown, Madhattan!

    Our favorite is the MAHONING DRIVE-IN (http://www.mahoningdit.com/) in Lehighton, Pennsylvania. Yeah, that's right. It's in PA. Under a 2.5 hour drive from Times Square. Why? Because they only show 35 mm prints and you can camp overnight at the drive-in!! How AWESOME IS THAT?!

    We'll also be checking out special Midnight Screenings @ the famous Sunshine theatre (http://www.landmarktheatres.com/Market/NewYork/NewYork_Frameset.htm) on East Houston Street, as well as other exploitation screenings in and around Badhattan.

    FINALLY, as the original 'Grindhouses' were named after the now defunct burlesque theaters located on 42nd Street in New York City, where 'bump n' grind' dancing and striptease were featured, we'll visit some of the remaining burlesque and vaudeville venues in NYC for a bit of naughtiness. . .
