Tracey got her start in commercials, most specifically a series of Sunkist soda ads. And she's gone on to a lucrative modelling career that's had her appear on Macy's billboard ads in New York City and countless magazine covers.

That's right, first-time director Brandon Scullion's Consumption is scheduled for a DVD and Digital release this July.

The Hallow is a 2015 Irish horror movie about a family that is forced to fight demonic creatures after moving into a remote mill house. It puts a modern spin on old Irish myths, while planting an infant child smack dab in the middle of the mayhem.
Shame on you. You know who you are. You’re the ones that apply your opinion, in some pretentious manner, as though what you think is going to change the world.
Structure this, story that, too much this, not enough that.
Did you forget that this was a superhero movie? Yes, you did. It was so epic, that you forgot.
I’m not going to fan boy, on and on.

Not one who likes to be left behind, I figured it wise to post the trailer for Basement Dwellers to enjoy, especially after so many new fans showed their love on our Facebook fan page these past 24 hours. Thank you!
There's not much I can add to my thoughts on this season that I didn't write about in my review of the first six episodes, but that doesn't reflect the quality of the season's second half. Not by a long shot.

Opinions are subjective though, and one person's hatred is another fan's gem. I wasn't pumped heading into Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, but I wanted to like it. I'm a Batman fan, enjoyed Man of Steel, and am all about seeing classic characters brought to life on the big screen.
But enough about me, here's the teaser poster:

But her next sci-fi movie, Rogue Warrior: Robot Fighter, has just wrapped cinematography and the Neil Johnson directed flick gained a pretty big star for its final days of filming -- William Kircher.

And who is Jenna? She's played by actress Tracey Birdsall, who just happens to be our next guest on the radio show/podcast.

It's great. 'Nuff said.
Looks like the new Sony release The Shallows is attempting to take a serious stab at making sharks threatening again, an they've picked a serious star and and a high concept to do it.

It also happens to be the big bad guy in Alastair Orr's new creature feature Indigenous, which Shawn and I checked out the other night before hitting the 92.5 FM airwaves on CFBX Kamloops. And our thoughts are below.

And what an hour it is, as the Terrible Trio tackle a movie review and a pair of subjects one wouldn't normally lump together -- Internet memes and comic-book movies.

Writer/director Seve Schelenz is THAT man. We met him back in 2011 when he submitted his first feature, Skew, to The Basement for review. And we partied with him and John Fallon at Dark Fest 2012. Now he's back with his sophomore flick Peelers, and it's a horror movie about strippers.

a long while since we talked about the Brooke Lewis horror/comedy Killer Rack, in which our favourite scream queen -- and regular guest on our Halloween specials -- voices a killer set of boobs.
I can't believe I just got to type that!

Norwegian filmmaker Roar Uthaug (Cold Prey) has used these disasters as the basis for his latest flick, The Wave, a small-budget disaster picture that gives large-scale Hollywood blockbusters a serious run for their money. Yeah, I liked it. A lot.

Hardcore Henry is just days away from being unleashed on audiences, but a little horror flick called You Are Not Alone has been bouncing around the festival circuit for some time now, delivering first-person thrills and chills to horror fans from around the world.
First time director Dan Trachtenberg, John Goodman (Roseanne), John Gallagher Jr (The Newsroom) and Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim) join forces to bring us a movie that is not at all a sequel to Cloverfield.
I will start by strongly suggesting you do not read reviews for this movie. Any spoilers could ruin the journey this movie takes you through, and the trailer did an amazing job of pulling you in without really telling you anything other than the basic plotline: after getting in a car accident, a woman is held in a shelter by two men who claim the outside world is affected by a widespread chemical attack.
While we (still) await the release of Before I Wake, which seems to have been scheduled to come out forever, Flanagan has ANOTHER movie headed our way called Hush, and it will be delivered to us exclusively by Netflix.

Oh yeah, by the way, there's a new trailer for Captain America: Civil War out. Wanna see it? Course you do.

But yes, there is a Baywatch movie coming out next summer that riffs on the uber popular 1990s lifeguard TV series. And it does star Dwayne Johnson as Mitch Bucchanon, who some guy named David Hasselhoff portrayed on the show.

I had no idea this show was happening until I was channel surfing last night and decided, against my better judgment (Rosemary's Baby anyone?) to give it a watch. Im not sure where I stand yet, but these are my observations.
There were some things I liked. The score was great, I was rattling windows. Barbara Hershey is a big plus for me, she is great in everything she's in. I also liked seeing cuts from the original movie, but after I lost count how many there were, it started to feel like filler. With all of the shots from the original it makes me wonder how much of the budget went toward paying for them. The location shots made it visually appealing as well.
By now, you know the name and the drill, so let's reveal this week's candidates to put on the chopping block:

Contributor Suzanne Cappelletti returns to The Basement with a cinematic dilemma of sorts, one that movie fans and genre geeks have agonized over for years: just what kind of a movie is Alien?
Don't know what I'm talking about? Read on:
Comics were blamed for corrupting the morals of children, music has caused listeners to worship the devil, and now an online phenomenon known as Slenderman is the focus of a new documentary film.

See how direct that was? No beating around the bush, subterfuge or misdirection. We want people who enjoy movies, who enjoy talking about movies AND who enjoy writing about movies to come write for us.
The below video popped up online showing Reeves doing firearm training for his upcoming John Wick: Chapter 2, and it is nothing short of jaw dropping. This guy needs to become my BFF. Seriously.

And tonight's episode is a good one, especially if you dig horror movies and enjoy insight into the filmmaking process.
For one, my burning hatred for the project is gone. Two, I laughed some while watching it. Three, I appreciate they acknowledge the original movie happened. So this is another sequel/reboot as opposed to a remake.

Opening in 10 markets across the United States on March 11, A Haunting in Cawdor is described as "a frightening twist on Shakespeare' Macbeth." Sounds pretty good to me!
The series, Artificial Intelligence, has been picked up by TNT, and is about a robot gone rogue and the people who are recruited to stop it.

Voting begins at midnight for this week's What Movie Wednesday tweet fest. And Mike S has dug deep into his cinematic vault to conjure up a trio of possibilities that will, individually and as group, chill your soul. Or his fingers as he tweets away. Or both.
But today the project has been 100-per-cent greenlit, with cameras set to role in seven weeks, so I think it's safe to say it's a go.
