The Collection, The Frankenstein Theory and an interview with Andrew Weiner

Never underestimate the power of social media. Doesn't mean you have to like it, let alone understand it, but don't underestimate it.

A chance encounter on Twitter led to tonight's feature interview with Andrew Weiner, director of The Frankenstein Theory, which also happens to be one of two movies on the chopping block tonight. Shawn sat down with Andrew for about 45 minutes, and it's a conversation for the ages, according to the Bad Man himself.

However, being a 60-minute radio show/podcast, you only get to hear about 18 minutes of the interview. The Basement Boys will post the talk in its entirety at a later date. Stick with us!

As for the movies, first up is the horror sequel The Collection. A man who escaped from the vicious grips of the serial killer known as The Collector is blackmailed into rescuing an innocent girl from the killer's booby-trapped warehouse. The first film, The Collector, was so so. Only time, and Jason and Shawn, will tell if this follow up is better.

Then there's the main event, The Frankenstein Theory! What if the most chilling novel of all time was actually based on a true account of a horrific experiment gone awry? When he is suspended from his university job for his outlandish ideas, Professor John Venkenheim leads a documentary film crew to the rim of the Arctic Circle in a desperate effort to vindicate his academic reputation. His theory: Mary Shelley's ghastly story, Frankenstein, is, in fact, a work of non-fiction disguised as fantasy.

So tune in at 10 p.m. PST at 92.5FM CFBX Kamloops and online at www.thex.ca. If you miss tonight's broadcast, we repeat Monday at 11 p.m. And the podcast version will be up Saturday morning.
