Skew, Familiar and A Chat With A Scream Queen

This episode is a milestone of sorts for Jason and Shawn. For the first time in Basement history the films on the chopping block are being reviewed at the request of the film makers themselves, and it's a task our two Basement Dwellers are all too willing take on.

First up is Seve Schelenz's horror feature Skew, which has screened at more than 40 film festivals worldwide and won awards at six. Skew was recently picked up by Netflix in the U.S. but has yet to achieve a wide release in our Home and Native Land. That said, it's screened in The Basement, and Jason and Shawn are prepared to tell you if Skew is deserving of the attention it's received.

Then the boys turn the executioner's axe on the first short film ever reviewed on the show: Familiar. The flick comes from the Fatal Pictures team of writer/director Richard Powell and producer Zach Green. Is Familiar 24 minutes of gruesome terror and fun? Stick with us!

And you've got to stick around for the long awaited conversation between our favourite scream queen, Brooke Lewis, and Jeremiah Kipp, the winner of our Win A Chat With A Scream Queen contest. Shawn oversaw the call, and promises that Jeremiah and Brooke have a few surprises in store for listeners. It's roughly eight minutes of chat that made Basement history!

Mike S. is also back with a horror review for your listening pleasure and there's four songs to tickle your ear holes. Plus the boys will make a major announcement about that film festival they keep talking about.

You can follow the tweets while the episode records live at @basementreviews. It hits the Internet on Saturday morning.

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. It's good stuff. Promise!

Now for a preview of our featured films!
