Mischief Night and Birth of the Living Dead
The Basement Dwellers have lined up a diverse mix of film de cinema for your listening pleasure, touching on slasher movies, the birth of the zombie craze, and a celebration of Basement cinema circa 2013.
First on the chopping block is Mischief Night, a low-budget horror flick that takes place on the night before Halloween, AKA Mischief Night. Richard Schenkman's tale follows young Emily Walton, who has suffered from psychosomatic blindness ever since the car accident that took her mother's life, as she summons every instinct at her disposal to protect herself and her loved ones from a mysterious intruder. Is this a welcome return to slow-burn terror or a great big bore? Or both? Stick with us!
Then the Basement Boys sit down with writer/director George A Romero and the documentary Birth of the Living Dead. What's it about? How Romero gathered an unlikely team of Pittsburghers to shoot his seminal film: Night of the Living Dead. Sound like fun? Tune in and find out.
Plus, Jason and Shawn share their Top 5 movies each for 2013. Combine their thoughts and it's a traditional Top-10 list . . . Basement style!
You can hear all this and more when the latest Basement lands in the morning.
