Next on the chopping block: Piranha 3D and Abominable

Tonight is a special night in The Basement: we're reviewing a creature-double feature where the emphasis is on beasts, boobs and blood . . . not necessarily in that order.

First up we're braving the waters of the Roger Corman horror/satire remake Piranha. The new version was made in 3D and comes courtesy of director Alexandre Aja, best know for his horror classic High Tension and the redo of The Hills Have Eyes.

Aja's films are uber bloody. Throw in a beach setting and the potential for exploitation holds no bounds. Does Piranha 3D deliver on the booty and blood? Stick with us.

Then stick around for a little-seen horror film where the villain is the legendary Bigfoot, a beast known to lurk in these here parts. The movie, made almost a decade ago by fledgling filmmaker Ryan Schifrin, generated good buzz from the film-geek set before premiering on the SyFy network in the U.S. about five years ago. Is it a dud or genre gem. We'll present our biased reviews later in the show.

Shawn and I will also share the latest segment of Who Cares?, bring you the current movie news, and kick the P.A. with some tunes. Who said radio is dead? Not us!

Tune in tonight at 10 p.m. PST on 92.5FM CFBX Kamloops or go online at www.thex.ca at the same Bat Time. 'Nuff said.

And now for some previews:
