Rage and Tales of an Ancient Empire

You think you're having a bad day? Check out the folks in the above pic. Doesn't look like things are going well for them at all!

Which brings us to one of our films on the chopping block this episode: Rage. Writer/director Chris Witherspoon approached The Basement Dwellers, Jason and Shawn, about reviewing his award-winning indie horror/thriller. The boys naturally agreed.

Witherspoon was inspired by 1970s thrillers like Duel when he crafted this story of a cat and mouse game between a suburban thirtysomething and a mysterious biker. As the tale unfolds, the game gets a little ugly. Does the outcome appease our Basement duo, or is Rage just something to get mad at? Stick with us!

And don't step away -- even for a second -- as Jason and Shawn turn their attention to Tales of an Ancient Empire, the not-so-long-awaited sequel to Albert Pyun's early 80s fantasy hit The Sword and the Sorcerer. Sure, no one cared if it got made, and it stars Kevin Sorbo, but it's still worth watching. Right? I said right!?!

The Basement welcomes Cory Hope, the voice behind 92.5FM CFBX's Accelerator, to the program this week. Cory has wanted to sit in on an episode of Film Reviews From the Basement since it hit the airwaves,  and The Basement Dwellers are happy to oblige.

Throw in some songs, a feature on movie trailers that suck, and the mad tweeting of Mike S over at @BasementReviews and you've got yourself an hour well spent. The podcast goes live on Saturday!

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.
