Sinners and Saints and Texas Killing Fields

Action speaks louder than words in The Basement this week as the boys take a break from horror and dive head first into the realm of the action/thriller.

Excited? We thought as much.

First up, The Basement Dwellers take a trip into the gritty New Orleans underbelly with Sinners and Saints. Martial artist turned actor Johnny Strong (appropriate last name for an action hero) stars as a troubled cop who sets out to solve a series of murders only to stumble onto something much bigger. Sound like a bunch of 1980s action films? Sure. Do we care as long as shit blows up? No. What do Jason and Shawn make of this little seen action flick? Stick with us!

And hang tough for the second film of the episode: Texas Killing Fields. The thriller holds a special place in The Basement Dwellers' hearts as its the first film they were invited to a screening of. Sure, they weren't able to attend, but it's the thought that counts. The film stars Hollywood middle weights Sam Worthington, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Hit Girl herself, Chloe Grace Moretz in the tale of two cops trying to crack a series of unsolved murders.

Wait, don't these two movies sounds kind of alike? Stick with us! Again!

Mike S will be displaying his mad tweeting skills throughout the recording of this latest episode. You can follow along at @basementreviews. The boy knows his tweets. We mean it!

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

Now for a preview of the evening's fireworks:
