Choose, Dead Hooker in a Trunk and an interview with Jen and Sylvia Soska

When it comes to horror, women tend to get more notice for the work they do in front of the camera than behind it. Not so with Jen and Sylvia Soska.

The self proclaimed Twisted Twins of Vancouver are no strangers to the entertainment industry, having started out as child actors before making the transition to stunt work and eventually a disappointing turn in film school. Frustrated, the twins set out to make their first feature film. They called it Dead Hooker in a Trunk, made it on a low budget, and the rest is history.

Jason and Shawn are not only going to review Dead Hooker on this episode, but The Basement Dwellers will also air a feature interview with Sylvia and Jen that explains their adventures in grindhouse cinema far better than can be done here. It's a 20-minute chat every film fan and aspiring filmmaker needs to hear. 

But first, the boys will level the executioner's axe at a little-know horror flick called Choose. It stars Canadian actress Katheryn Winnick, last seen in The Basement fave Satan's Little Helper, as a journalism student tracking a serial killer. Does it end badly for her, or does the latest horror heroine win the day? Stick with us!

Mike S will be displaying his mad tweeting skills throughout the recording of this latest episode. You can follow along at @basementreviews. It's more fun than a circus. Promise!

And don't forget to tune in to 92.5FM CFBX Kamloops, Shaw Cable 106.1 and www.thex.ca at 3 p.m. PST today for the radio version of last week's show.

And now for a taste of tonight's gruesome entertainment:
