Interview With A Scream Queen: The Halloween Spooktacular 2
We're serious about this. A good horror movie needs, nay DEMANDS, a scream queen. And a scream queen -- a real, bonafide scream queen -- is more than just a pretty face with a good scream. But why should we go into further detail about what makes a scream queen when tonight's show features award-winning scream queen Brooke Lewis?
Regular readers know we're big Brooke Lewis fans. We've talked about her here and here and again here. And she's shown enough faith in our show to be a part of The Basement's first contest: Win A Chat With A Scream Queen, which kicks off tonight. Guess who the scream queen is.
Also, as fate would have it, Slime City Massacre, for which Brooke won The Golden Cob Award for Best Scream Queen, hits select cities as a digital release today! Check local listings for showtimes and give this film a watch!
Our interview with Brooke takes up the bulk of our Halloween edition, but we've also got time to talk trash about horror movies. Yes, we love horror here in The Basement. But we also realize the genre, especially in film form, has made some mistakes -- big mistakes. We're going to point some of them out tonight.
Throw in some Halloween-themed music and an impromptu scare or two and you've got yourself a late-night hour plus of ghoulish radio. Tune in at 10 p.m. PST at 92.5FM CFBX Kamloops, Shaw Cable 106.1 and www.thex.ca. Stick with us!
