Season Two, Episode I: ChromeSkull: Laid to Rest 2 and Troll Hunter

We are Jason and Shawn and we are back in The Basement!

It was a good summer, one spent with family and outdoors fishing, mountain biking, kayaking and camping. But school's back in, the weather's turned to glorious crap and it's time to watch some movies! And that's what Shawn and I will be doing for the next 22 Fridays, come hell or high water!

First up is a slasher sequel for the ages. Laid to Rest has some of the most incredible -- and gory -- kills ever put on film. And it was a decent movie too. That means ChromeSkull has some tough shoes to fill as he takes his big, bloody knife and turns it on a new crop of victims. But is this just a rehash of the first movie, or do horror fans get something new this time around? Something original? Stick with us!

And you don't want to miss a minute of our thoughts on Troll Hunter, a Norwegian film we first talked about on our Series Premiere last year! It's got subtitles, is another entry in the found-footage genre and the main baddies are something children aren't even scared of any more. Should we hold that against it? Tune in tonight and find out!

We've also got Mike S. in The Basement with a Retro Review of The Shining (he will also tweet along to the show over @BasementReviews), a quintet of songs for your ear hole and other goodness that will make you too cool for school. You know where you need to be tonight at 10 p.m. PST? That's right: at 92.5 FM CFBX Kamloops, Shaw Cable 106.1 and www.thex.ca!

And now for a preview of our coming attractions:
