What we're about

We are a community of Horror & Cult fans and meet-up group that enjoy new and classic cult films and events. We organise activities, meet-ups and events in cinemas, venues, homes, pubs, your local Pet Sematary and weird places around London, especially coinciding with Halloween, Comic-Con and mainstream and international film festivals. We welcome your suggestions for future activities and please share our group with other like minded people so we can grow and be more awesome.
Website: 
NO-NO'S AND GUIDELINES: (1) If you RSVPd and need to cancel please let us know by using the "Not Going" attendance option  (2) Respect others, No discrimination & No bullying (4) No spam or sex sellers

NO-SHOW POLICY:  Some of are events involve table bookings or reservations at establishments with strict booking policies. This can affect future reservations and the group's reputation. For this reason we have now established a strict (yet flexible) No-Show Policy.  Members will have a limit of 2  "No-Show Flags" before not being able to attend future meetups. To avoid being Flagged please inform us prior to the meetup if can't or won't be attending. You can do this by moving your RSVP option from "Going" to "Not Going". You can also erase a flag status as long as it doesn't reach 2 times when you show up to the next event and informing the host.
PREVIOUSLY FLAGGED MEMBERS: If you have been previously flagged as "Not Showed" at previous meetup(s) please be aware that unfortunately you may be removed from the RSVP lists in favour for others members to go. This will only happen if a table has been reserved and if there are strict restaurant bar policies. You will still be able to join the meet-up on a Non-RSVP basis just compromising on what we can do on the day.  Your Flagged status is normally removed once you showed up to any next event and informing the host.

PREMISE
Sweepingly compared with its contemporary Letter to Brezhnev, Laundrette indeed revolves around a tale of young cross-cultural love. But whereas the sleazy, raucous bulk of Brezhnev worked as a foil for eventual true love, here Frears paints a more somber picture, and a more complex one. Working class life offers few elevations of laughter here in south London, where young Nasser scrapes an existence from his Uncle’s laundry business.

An open examination of British racism and an Asian youth making a living against the odds, the film should work as a fairly formulaic boy-meets-boy romance. But the emotional baggage (the dirty laundry – apologies) can’t be ignored and so, unlike many forbidden romance movies, My Beautiful Laundrette contains none of the uplifting buzz an audience might expect from the two sweethearts (the comedy comes from the peripheral oddballs). Rebellion is something implicit in their love, and is reluctantly accepted rather than shouted from the hilltops. Laundrette is utterly subdued in its admission of inconvenient love. Melancholia seeps and mingles through the film like the scent of cigarettes and washing powder in the boys’ claustrophobic den (the back room of the laundrette, where, through the dramatic device of a one-way mirror, they can keep an eye on the customers or any dogma-wielding relatives who might interrupt their fun). Superbly acted by Day-Lewis and Jaffrey, skillfully directed, My Beautiful Laundrette is timely, provocative and unique.

PREMISE
A ruptured water main creates an enormous sinkhole right in front of Bob's Burgers, blocking the entrance indefinitely and ruining the Belchers' plans for a successful summer. While Bob and Linda struggle to keep the business afloat, the kids try to solve a mystery that could save their family's restaurant. As the dangers mount, these underdogs help each other find hope as they try to get back behind the counter.
