Season Two, Episode 3: Red State and A Horrible Way To Die

The themes might be in the realm of pure exploitation, but the way tonight's films execute them (if you'll excuse the pun) is decidedly different than most genre pictures.

And count on Kevin Smith to bring some controversy to the double bill with his first foray into non-goofball cinema, Red State. Smith, best known for films like Clerks and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, stirred up Hollywood when he announced he was auctioning Red State during the movie's debut at the Sundance Film Festival. Then, at the last minute, he decided to distribute it himself.

By doing this, Smith seemed to piss off pretty much everyone.But is his movie worthy of all the hubbub? Stick with us!

And stick around for The Basement Dwellers' thoughts on Adam Wingard's serial killer movie A Horrible Way To Die. On the surface it sounds like a typical horror film: killer escapes from prison and cuts a path through everyone he meets as he pursues his ex-girlfriend. But, as with Smith and Red State, Wingard doesn't play by the rules.

There's also music by D'Amato and Flyleaf, the return of Game Time With Greg, and a bunch of other goodies to get giddy about starting at 10 p.m. PST. All you need to do is tune in to 92.5FM CFBX Kamloops, Shaw Cable 106.1 and www.thex.ca -- provided the streaming is up and running by then. Check back often!

And now for a look at tonight's films:
