This group meets on the first Tuesday of each month to view SF and
other genre related films.
Easily excitable Neal Page (Steve Martin) is somewhat of a control
freak. Trying to get home to Chicago to spend Thanksgiving with his
wife (Laila Robins) and kids, his flight is rerouted to a distant city in
Kansas because of a freak snowstorm, and his sanity begins to fray.
Worse yet, he is forced to bunk up with talkative Del Griffith (John
Candy), whom he finds extremely annoying. Together they must
overcome the insanity of holiday travel to reach their intended
|Curse of the Demon (1957)
TSF! continued the month's dark magic theme that Suspense Central kicked off with the film
Curse of the Demon, but stepped it up a bit by screening the longer version Night of the
Demon. Curse ran 82 minutes, while Night ran 96, fleshing out the story to a better degree
and adding 14 minutes of old time fun. Night of the Demon is a 1957 British horror film
directed by Jacques Tourneur, starring Dana Andrews, Peggy Cummins and Niall MacGinnis.
The film finds an American professor traveling to London and getting involved in a dangerous
situation with a cult. Very atmospheric. Festivities continued at a nearby restaurant.
Our pirate theme was well represented by the film Captain Blood from 1935. Captain Blood
was the film that put Errol Flynn on the map as a major star. Several attendees had not
seen the film before so it was fun to see the reactions to this high sea adventure. This was
the first of eight films Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland costarred in. The first seven were
directed by Michael Curtiz, with the last one (They Died with Their Boots On) by Raoul Walsh.
Conversation continued at a nearby restaurant.
Big welcome to first time attendee Richard!
