I've heard good things about Cooties, it's a zombie film set in a school about an outbreak that only affects prepubescent children. Sounds like fun.

I can't get down with Switchblade Romance, the twist is just too dumb to be forgivable, up until then it is entertaining though.

I have a soft spot for slasher shitfests, so stuff like The Burning and Sleepaway Camp are always good fun. For a modern analogue Hatchet is a fun practical effects driven blood bath with nods to hear there and everywhere.

If we have Ringu we've gotta have Ju On as well. The duvet scene has creeped me out for years.

a handful films I have a soft spot for that haven't been mentioned becuase I need to go out and really wanted to post so I'll start here:
Innkeepers
Martyrs (easily my favourite of the New French Extremity films)
Behind the Mask, The Rise of Leslie Vernon (don't be put off by the crummy title)

Fantastic news. I hope it means they will make it over here since they were due to play some shows a couple of years ago and abruptly pulled out. Or did I imagine that?

Anyway, that Mare EP is on of my all time favourites.

Dearest C-chums, I'm looking for a show/couple of shows that my band could hop on on the 18th and 19th of April. We're playing in Brighton on the 20th so ideally the 19th will be a nice driving distance from there. House shows/squats/arena tours all considered.
It has been reasoned that we're primarily some kind of screamo band but we're be happy to play with all sorts of bands as long as it's lovely people involved. Feel free to have a listen on the link below and hopefully we can work something out.

They were super loud when I saw them but they were cool. I'm looking forward to seeing them play again at some point.

What does a Deathwish Music Maker sound like? Do you mean production?

Yeah, it many ways it just feels to me like just another DW release (despite the fact I really like the album) it's probably a bit of a vague criticism but it irks me.

I did. I thought Micheal was a great track, but overall FFMF was a really weak record, especially following The Balancing Act.

I liked it as a whole, but the Cage guest spot was pretty awful.

I would like a guitarist to help me complete the aim stated in the title of this thread.
Based in SE London ideally and won't mind playig guitar with a drum machine+synth while another guy shouts about stuff.

I'm also willing to rip off other bands too.

I think you're right on the 'box ticking' aspect of going to reunion shows, between that and the expectation that comes with any kind of legacy it sets up a really weird atmosphere.

I like what I've heard of the new Napalm Death album. I'm hoping the rest of it is of a similar quality.

I was readying myself to dislike that but the bass dragged me in under the weedle deedle guitars and then it got better.
Are there any bands that sound like Destroyer Destroyer anymore?

The transformation of Minus was an odd one. I like the video of them playing on Icelandic TV: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T3EtVS9tqv0
