Next on the chopping block: Mother's Day (2012)

Remember when Rebecca De Mornay was all that? Back in the 80s she starred in respectable hits like Risky Business and Runaway Train before taking a turn for the crazy in The Hand That Rocks the Cradle. Then poof -- off the radar.

Well, De Mornay is back in a big way with Darren Lynn Bousman's much touted, and much delayed we might add, Mother's Day remake. It's pretty much a remake no one asked for (wait, all remakes are like that) but it received generally favourable reviews on the festival circuit, especially for De Mornay's performance and the gobs of uncompromising violence.

Now Mother's Day has found its way into The Basement just in time for Father's Day. Ha! Didn't see that one coming did you!?! And Jason and Shawn are more than willing to put it on the chopping block. Does the film live up to its hype, or do our Basement Dwellers find good reason for it to have languished in distribution hell? You'll find out when the June Special goes live at 7 a.m. PST tomorrow!

Our special episodes are stripped down versions of the radio show. Just a review and some lively banter. We'll be back in The Basement and back on 92.5FM CFBX Kamloops in October for all new episodes with season four. Stick with us!
