Season Two, Episode 10: The Shrine and Needle

There's nothing quite like watching beautiful people die. Not a question, but a statement from one horror fan to another.

And the actors and actresses cast in the films on the chopping block tonight are among the beautiful people. Given that the movies are of the independent and horror variety, there's a pretty good chance some, or even all, will meet a gruesome end. Jason and Shawn wouldn't have it any other way.

The first half of tonight's horrific double bill hails from Canada but takes place in Poland. The Shrine features a trio of journalists who investigate a cult accused of committing human sacrifices. One must assume the group runs the risk of finding out first hand if the allegations are true. Does The Shrine offer up thrills and chills? Stick with us!

Then it's off to the land Down Under for the supernatural tale of a torture device that allows the user to kill his or her prey from a distance. In this case the prey is a group of young university students who cross paths with the titular Needle. The plot certainly offers up potential, but The Basement Dwellers will judge whether or not the film is Good, Bad or Ugly.

There's also the return of Game Time With Greg, four songs for your listening pleasure and other movie-related tricks and treats, all starting at 10 p.m. PST on www.thex.ca, Shaw Cable 106.1 and 92.5FM CFBX Kamloops. It's radio from the cinematic basement.
