This group meets on the first Tuesday of each month to view SF and
other genre related films.
Killer Klowns from Outer Space is a fantasy/parody film from 1988.
When teenagers Mike (Grant Cramer) and Debbie (Suzanne Snyder) see a comet
crash outside their sleepy small town, they investigate and discover a pack of
murderous aliens who look very much like circus clowns. They try to warn the local
authorities, but everyone assumes their story is a prank. Meanwhile, the clowns
set about harvesting and eating as many people as they can. It's not until they
kidnap Debbie that Mike decides it's up to him to stop the clowns' rampage.

4/7/20 thoughts & trivia
Our theme of Paranormal Physicians would have been well represented by the 1933
Universal film The Invisible Man. Due to ongoing closed facilities in the wake of the global
pandemic, we were unable to screen our selected film. If we had been able to meet, it
would've been a fun night.
Some film trivia: different actors were considered, but director James Whale, who had
already done Frankenstein in 1931 and would eventually do Bride of Frankenstein in 1935,
chose English stage actor Claude Rains for the part, largely due to his speaking voice. It
follows the H.G. Wells novel pretty well. For Modern Masters later this month, we were going
to discuss the book & film.
|Jurassic Park III (2001)
Our third times a charm theme for the month began with Jurassic Park III (2001). Sam Neill,
Dr. Alan Grant in the original, came back for number three. This time around, his character
Alan Grant is tricked into going to a second island, Isla Sorna. Isla Sorna is InGen's second
site for a failed Jurassic Park experiment. The island, and the dinosaurs on it, were
abandoned and left to nature. Action abounds. Not a blockbuster type like the first two films,
it's cute and fun to view. Attendees continued conversation at a nearby eatery.
