US Premiere of REVENGE!
More info to follow... Jen is enjoying a romantic getaway with her wealthy boyfriend -- until his two sleazy friends arrive for an unannounced hunting trip. As tension mounts in the house, the situation abruptly and viciously intensifies, culminating in a shocking act that leaves Jen left for dead. Unfortunately for her assailants, she survives and soon begins a relentless quest for bloody revenge. Revenge is a 2017 French rape and revenge horror film directed and written by Coralie Fargeat. Starring Matilda Lutz, Kevin Janssens, Vincent Colombe and Guillaume Bouchède, it follows a young woman who is assaulted by three married men and left for dead but she returns with revenge on her mind. It has been selected to be screened in the Midnight Madness section of the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival and in the Midnight Shivers programme of the 21st Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival (PÖFF). www.facebook.com/RevengeLeFilm https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revenge_(2017_film) https://youtu.be/fTIyQTxNgvg This is NOT a free film screaming.

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?!

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. . .
