For January's Creature Feature, we'll be delivering an event for the winner of our Ladies' Night Creature Feature Party. Some modification to the winner's selection was necessary to fit within the Creature Feature Party theme. Back in September, the guys busted out their kilts at the ladies' request for our Creature Feature Party for the beloved South Florida Horror and Sci-Fi Movie Fans group: https://www.meetup.com/The-South-Florida-Horror-Movie-Group/events/254144690/ For this Guy's Night Creature Feature Party, we're going to show the original King Kong, which features Fay Wray as the classic damsel in distress. The Ladies' Night winner selected "Disney Princesses" as the theme but I couldn't find a creature feature movie to match. So, for this event, the ladies are encouraged to dress as a damsel or princess in distress to accompany our screening of the original, authentic, definitive creature feature: King Kong (1933). To encourage maximum participation, there will be a trophy and prize awarded to the lady that is judged by the guys as the "Most Distressed Damsel". Participating ladies will suggest the guys' attire for the next Guys' Night Creature Feature party. The "Most Distressed Damsel" winner will make the final choice. What goes around always comes around in Creature Features! This is a social event with no specific end time. Your host will provide the venue, movie pass, pizza, water, soda, ice and other essentials. Attendees are encouraged to bring beverages and food to share. If you'd like to make a contribution, thanks! What should you bring? I recommend craft beer, wine, liquor, sandwiches, snack food and whatever else you enjoy. Thanks to all the regular attendees for making past events such a feast. While some watch the movie, others will socialize, play Slash Cards horror trivia, Cards Against Humanity (or other games) and enjoy the company of other B Movie fans. King Kong (1933): From RottenTomatoes.com, "How would you like to star opposite the tallest, darkest leading man in Hollywood?" Enticed by these words, brunette leading lady Fay Wray dyed her hair blonde and accepted the role of Ann Darrow in King Kong -- and stayed with the project even after learning that her "leading man" was a 50-foot ape. The film introduces us to flamboyant, foolhardy documentary filmmaker Carl Denham (Robert Armstrong), who sails off to parts unknown to film his latest epic with leading lady Darrow in tow. Disembarking at Skull Island, they stumble on a ceremony in which the native dancers circle around a terrified-looking young girl, chanting, "Kong! Kong!" ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi Rotten Tomatoes: Tomatometer: 98% | Audience: 86% https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/1011615_king_kong Trailer: https://youtu.be/2Sil5-kns1c
Love to sing or play Rock Band? Join us for our third Rock Band & Karaoke Gathering! RSVPs for this event will be limited so that all attendees have the opportunity to play. Rock Band is a series of music video games that is a combination of karaoke and Guitar Hero. Rock Band allows five simultaneous players. Two singers (one lead and one harmony), one guitarist, one bass guitarist and one drummer. It's a fantastic game to play with friends! Microphones, guitars and a drum set are already available, so no need to bring instruments. We have a collection of more than 100 songs for a variety of musical tastes and regularly add more. Have a particular song you love? Message the hosts with suggestions. This is a social event with no specific end time. Your host will provide the venue, Rock Band game and instruments, pizza, water, soda, ice and other essentials. Attendees are encouraged to bring beverages and food to share. If you'd like to make a contribution, thanks! What should you bring? I recommend craft beer, wine, liquor, sandwiches, snack food and whatever else you enjoy.
In this spectacular father/son collaboration, Stephen King and Owen King tell the highest of high-stakes stories: what might happen if women disappeared from the world of men? In a future so real and near it might be now, something happens when women go to sleep: they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent. And while they sleep they go to another place, a better place, where harmony prevails and conflict is rare. One woman, the mysterious “Eve Black,” is immune to the blessing or curse of the sleeping disease. Is Eve a medical anomaly to be studied? Or is she a demon who must be slain? Abandoned, left to their increasingly primal urges, the men divide into warring factions, some wanting to kill Eve, some to save her. Others exploit the chaos to wreak their own vengeance on new enemies. All turn to violence in a suddenly all-male world. Set in a small Appalachian town whose primary employer is a women’s prison, Sleeping Beauties is a wildly provocative, gloriously dramatic father-son collaboration that feels particularly urgent and relevant today.
An alien shuttle craft lands outside the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto. A six-legged, two-armed alien emerges and says, in perfect English, "Take me to a paleontologist." In the distant past, Earth, the alien's home planet, and the home planet of another alien species, all experienced the same five cataclysmic events at the same time (one example: the meteor that wiped out the dinosaurs). Both alien races believe this proves the existence of God: i.e., he's obviously been playing with the evolution of life on each of these planets. From this provocative launch point, Sawyer tells a fast-paced, morally and intellectually challenging story of ambitious scope and touching humanity. Calculating God is SF on a grand scale. Calculating God is a 2001 Hugo Award Nominee for Best Novel Bring pizza or snacks.
