Season Two, Episode 5: Aaah! Zombies!! and Bunraku

What do zombies and Japanese puppet theatre have in common? Simple, both are the basis for our films on the chopping block tonight.

First up The Basement Dwellers, along with Cameron "The Establishment" Thompson, tackle the zomcom Aaah! Zombies!!!, the latest in a growing line of zombie comedies that began with the now classic Shaun of the Dead.

But is there any life left in zombie comedy? One would think there's only so much fun that can be made at the expense of the living dead. Is Aaah! Zombies!!! on par with Shaun and the underrated Dance of the Dead or should it be left dead and buried? Stick with us!

Then Jason, Shawn and The Establishment turn the executioner's axe on Bunraku, a trippy martial arts/action flick starring Josh Hartnett, Woody Harrelson, Demi Moore and some guy who's name sounds like the noise a cat makes when it coughs up a hairball. The film's visual style is based on Japanese puppet theatre, so Bunraku should at least look striking. But is it any good? Tune in and find out!

When The Basement Dwellers aren't talking movies and butting heads with The Establishment, they're discussing their favourite movie trailers and listening to music from the likes of Crud and Celldweller. Did we tell you tonight's hour of live radio is going to be awesome? Well, it is!

So tune in at 10 p.m. PST at www.thex.ca, Shaw Cable 106.1 and 92.5FM CFBX Kamloops. We promise you will only regret it a little.

And now for a preview of our coming attractions:

Aaah! Zombies!!
