New Meetup: CROPSEY- a scary documentary at the Georgetown 14

Announcing a new Meetup for Indy Film Buffs Meetup Group!

What: CROPSEY- a scary documentary at the Georgetown 14

When: Sunday, July 18,[masked]:30 PM

Where: Republic Theaters Georgetown 14
3898 Lafayette Rd
Indianapolis, IN 46254

A True Crime Story, About Urban Legends, and the Defense of Community- that's the heading on the page for this documentary on the site of its US distributor, Cinema Purgatorio. Cropsey is set on Staten Island, NY. When the directors were growing up there, they kept hearing stories about "Cropsey", a scary old dude who killed kids. It seemed like an urban legend, back in the 70s- but in the eighties, it started to look like Cropsey was all too real....

Roger Ebert called Cropsey a "chilling horror documentary"; other review quotes compare the film to a 70s drive-in horror movie, and use words like "unsettling", "disturbing", and "creepy". (Cropsey was at 91% on Rotten Tomatoes as of Wednesday evening, by the way.) So if this sounds like your cup of weirdness, come on out to the Georgetown 14 on Sunday night. The movie itself starts at 7:45, so I scheduled the start time for the meetup at 7:30.

For a more review quotes, and a preview of the film, this is where you want to go:

(Sorry for the last-minute nature of this, but I wasn't certain that this movie would be opening in Indy this weekend until a half hour or so ago. And I know we've had a lot of meet-ups lately, so a number of you may have had your fill of meet-ups lately.... and I know that the Indianapolis International Film Festival is going on this weekend as well. Still, this sounds like an excellent documentary, and I wanted to get the word out for anyone who is interested, and has the time.)
