The Harry Manfredini Interview, Attack the Block and Kidnapped

Kill, kill, kill . . . ma, ma, ma! By taking the line of dialogue "Kill her, mommy. Kill her" and integrating it into the score for Friday the 13th, composer Harry Manfredini made cinematic history. He also coined one of the most spoken phrases in the movie-nerd vocabulary, and film fans love him for it. 

Harry has composed music for more than 100 feature films during his prolific and influential career, one he only gets to scratch the surface of during Jason and Shawn's scant 30-minute chat with him. But it's a conversation every movie and music fan needs to hear, which is why this interview will air uninterrupted between the Basement Dwellers' two reviews of the evening.

And how about those reviews? First up, Jason and Shawn put the British sci-fi comedy Attack the Block on the chopping block. The boys know they are a bit late to the party when it comes to reviewing this highly regarded effort. But being the biased bastards they are, they know you'll want to hear their thoughts on the film. Is Attack the Block Good, Bad or Ugly? Stick with us!

Then it's over to Spain for the second movie of the evening: the home-invasion thriller Kidnapped. The film has a reputation for not holding back on the blood and carnage. Does it live up to its gruesome reputation? Tune in tonight and find out.

So grab a beer or two and plunk your butt down at 10 p.m. PST, tuning in to www.thex.ca, Shaw Cable 106.1 or 92.5FM CFBX Kamloops for all your radio and movie-review needs.

And now for a look at tonight's films:
