Exclusive Reveal: She Will Return

Comin' at yah, From The Basement has an exclusive treat for Basement Dwellers and horror fans everywhere... the first official reveal of Jeff Payne's spooky follow up to his hit short film, The Pale Faced Lady!

We highlighted the first film back in March, and people really liked what Jeff did narratively and visually with this creepy little ghost story. And Shawn and I dug it as well. The fact Jeff is hitting us with a follow up so quickly is proof there is a Cinematic God.

Review: Dolls (2019)

Let's face it, dolls are creepy. They don't need to be possessed by demons or the spirit of a serial killer to be scary. They just are. So it makes perfect sense to make horror movies about them, because you're already half way there in the scare factor.

The upcoming Uncork'd Entertainment release, Dolls, isn't the first killer-doll movie, and it certainly won't be the last. It's a low-budget effort that's more Stuart Gordon's Dolls than Full Entertainment's Puppet Master, and is a worthy entry in the killer-doll subgenre.

The Seth Breedlove Interview and Dolls

Get ready for a 25-minute journey into the realm of crypitds, ghosts and other Small Town Monsters as Jason and Shawn interview a documentary filmmaker with an interest in the unexplained: Seth Breedlove!

Seth is a former newspaper reporter with a passion for all things Bigfoot, Mothman and other weird creatures. He's turned that passion into a profession, making almost a dozen films on the subject. The most recent are Terror in the Skies and On the Trail of... Bigfoot, and he talks with us about his work, what his thoughts are on the paranormal, and a whole lot more.

Men In Black get the Late Night Shaft

The summer movie season is in full swing, and we've got three new movies to choose from if you're headed to the theatre this weekend. Two are sequels/reboots and one's an original property.

What? Something original coming out of Hollywood in the summer? Stop the world, it's time to get off!

Indeed, Jason and Howie have a lot to discuss on this, From The Basement's return to the mighty Radio NL 610 AM Morning show!

Retro Review: Creature (1985)

Some time between Alien (1979) and its sequel Aliens (1986) someone got the great idea to rip off the first film and call it Creature. That year was 1985, and the movie is called... well... Creature.

In the best tradition of rip offs, Creature doesn't do much more with the concept of astronauts discovering something horrible on a distant planet, in this case Titan, Saturn's largest moon. And that something horrible starts killing and, we assume, eating them.

It board game coming this fall

Board games are back in a big way, with manufacturers more than willing to take classic movies and books and adapt them to the concept.

My wife got me Who Goes There? last fall, and it's an awesome adaptation of the classic John Campbell novel that become John Carpenter's The Thing. Yup, there's a Thing board game, and it's awesome!

Now we've got It: Evil Below heading our way just in time for Warner Bros.'s sequel to the monster -- pun intended -- 2017 film, and it sounds pretty rad.

The Basement visits Small Town Monsters

We love doing interviews here in The Basement, and we've got another good one lined up for you this week. One that delves into the world of monsters and winged freaks, but not of the cinematic variety. Nope. We're exploring those that allegedly haunt our skies, forests, and small towns.

Jay sat down today with Seth Breedlove, the documentary filmmaker behind Small Town Monsters, those fine purveyors of paranormal-themed docs like Terror in the Skies (which we recently reviewed on our show), The Flatwood Monsters, and many, many more.
