RoboCop (2014), The Penny Dreadful Picture Show and an interview with Mike Mendez

Big Ass Spider was not only a surprise hit with audiences, but it quickly won over Jason and Shawn to become a Basement favourite. Plus the episode in which The Basement Boys reviewed the flick is one of the more popular in the Basement archive.

So it's only fitting Jason and Shawn interviewed Big Ass Spider director Mike Mendez in what turned out to be a lively 15 or so minutes of film conversation about the movie, its origins, and how it fits in with Mike's other work: the supernatural thriller The Gravedancers and the horror/comedy The Convent. What does the man have to say? Stick with us!

But stick around as The Basement Boys tackle the latest Hollywood remake of a genre fave -- RoboCop. The movie took a lot of hits from the nerd black hole about its PG-13 rating. Does that make a lick of difference to Jason and Shawn? There's only one way to find out . . .

Last, but certainly not least, you know who catch The Penny Dreadful Picture Show, a horror anthology featuring the work of Slash-in-the-Box, The Scout and Chilling Visions: 5 Senses of Fear director Nick Everhart. The dude's previous movie and short films have been stellar. Time to see if his latest offering holds up.
