Which means we're super pumped to report the critically acclaimed film, which the L.A. Times called "remarkably ambitious," is now available to watch anywhere in the world on Vimeo On Demand!

It's 3:00 am. The air wafting through the drapes is hot- slowly sucking the moisture from you. Your restless mind feels clogged with cotton balls.
You can't sleep, but you can't fully wake up either.
That's when the flickering images on the TV screen catch your attention and you realize that you're watching an old movie.
You're watching "Swamp Women"...

But when your six-year-old son wants to go see Teen Titans Go! To the Movies, as the Teen Titans Go! TV series is one of his all-time favourites, you take him. It's part of being a dad.
Yup, no Shawn for you! He's on vacation.
But the Mad Twit Mike S sits down with Jason for this, the extended cut of Friday's segment on the mighty Radio NL 610 AM Kamloops, featuring an interview with filmmakers Troy Foreman and Jason Morris about their documentary Millennium After the Millennium.

In the capable hands of Jason and Morning Show co-host Shane Woodford of course!

Yup, director Chris Raney has made a medieval horror flick with dwarves, dragons and something sinister lurking inside a cave, and it's called Dragon Mountain.

It's 2:30 am, the summer night breeze is wafting through the open balcony door as the distant, lonely sound of a train floats mournfully as it passes.
And I find myself watching David Lynch's 1984 film, "Dune"- based on Frank Herbert's novel of the same name.

Within? Never heard of it . . . until it showed up on my Netflix account.
Pushing play, I didn't know what to expect. I certainly didn't think I'd get into it as quickly as I did, or enjoy it at all. I figured it was one of those flicks you fall asleep to after a night at the pub.

With the recent release of the "Aquaman" and "Shazam!" movie trailers, I started thinking about a few of my favorite DC Comics characters that I felt deserve to be on the big screen.
Without further ado, here they are in alphabetical order:
Saturday, July 21, 2018
And at this moment, we can present the trailers for the upcoming DCU flicks SHAZAM! and Aquaman and the much-anticipated Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
Joining Jason and Shane Woodford at about 8:40 a.m. (Shawn is on vacation) are filmmakers Troy Foreman and Jason Morris, the driving forces behind the upcoming documentary Millennium After the Millennium.

The Equalizer was a pretty big hit, so a sequel was inevitable. Four years later we've got The Equalizer 2, and I'm happy to say it was worth the wait.
Fans have waited 17 years for a sequel to Unbreakable, not knowing Shyamalan snuck one in under the radar (kinda) with Split. Thankfully, that movie was a big hit, because the fine folks at Universal and Blumhouse put things in motion to bring the characters of The Beast, David Dunn and Mr. Glass together.

Some are better than others. Spectral was decent, The Open House not so much. A couple of weeks back they unleashed Tau, featuring the voice of Gary Oldman and It Follows and The Guest starlet Maika Monroe in a one-location sci-fi thriller about a kidnapped woman and a deadly AI.

Overlord, for the record, was the code name for the D-Day invasion of Normandy by Allied troops in World War 2. Just so you get the reference here.
Have you ever wondered what your pets get up to while your gone? I have, so I figured "The Secret Life of Pets" might be entertaining...
Max the terrier has the perfect life: a warm bed, free food, and a loving human. Then his human gets a second dog... a large shaggy one named Duke. During their struggle to determine dominance, they find themselves lost in the city. Now, they must team up to find their way home...

In fact, the shoot is a couple of days and change old at this point, which means it's high time to share a few behind-the-scenes shots for your eye holes.

When I buy my horror box sets, I expect plenty of low budget horror movies. I expect a fair number of bad ones. I expect fewer decent ones. I expect even fewer jewels.
"Death on Demand" definitely wasn't one of those jewels.

That's right, the Basement Boys talk Dwayne Johnson's latest effort, the Die Hard in a skyscraper action flick Skyscraper, plus the Adam Sandler animated Sequel Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation.
Friday, July 13, 2018
This weekend there's a pair of new movies that will compete for your movie-going dollar: Skyscraper and Hotel Transylvania 3.

... not so much.

Sweetening the deal: the script for RoboCop Returns is by Michael Miner and Edward Neumeier, who penned the original film, with a polish by Justin Rhodes, who scripted the upcoming Terminator.
At one time or another, we have all been there- unable to sleep, flipping idly through the channels and creating our own story from the bits and fragments we catch between channel flips, until we come across a show or movie that makes us go, "Huh... this might be interesting."
Or in my case, flipping through my DVD/Blu-Ray collection.

And that brings us to Bronx SIU (Special Investigations Unit), which hits UMC and Amazon Prime on July 19.

Star Wars fans are the latest group of "fandoms" that have become toxic to their chosen franchise, and geekdom in general. Their outrage at the prequels, a Jamaican sounding alien, a black stormtrooper, the revelation about Rey's parents, the introduction of Rose, the portrayal of an older Luke Skywalker, etc.
They make me shake my head.

Shawn wasn't able to attend the NL Morning Show with Howie Reimer, but he delivers his two bits and change on the weekend's big releases: the latest MCU effort Ant Man and the Wasp and the horror prequel The First Purge. What does he have to say and what does he think? Stick with us!
Friday, July 6, 2018
This of course can only mean one thing: it's time for We Came from the Basement to join Howie Reimer on the Radio NL 610 AM Morning Show and talk about it.

Flicks like 1987's The Hidden!
I had a crap day full of family crisis on July 4, and just needed to unwind with a couple of cold ones. For whatever reason, all I wanted to watch was The Hidden. It had been a few years, so I guess I was due. And watch it I did!

I got to do just that this Canada Day weekend, taking in not only the new Tomb Raider, but the much acclaimed A Quiet Place. How do these flicks rate on the Basement scale? Stick with me!
Monday, July 2, 2018
It's the Canada Day long weekend, and what better way for me to celebrate... than with a list of my top five favorite Canadian made horror movies?
Am I right- or am I right, eh?
Last night, I tackled the 2015 Dolph Lundgren flick Shark Lake. Because if any movie was designed for The Drunken Review, it's one where Dolph Lundgren punches a shark in the nose . . . in a lake. Does Miller High Life make this a fun and enjoyable ride? Stick with me!
"Admit it: that was cool as fuck." Star Marc Natoli says that line about half way through the action short The Proposal, and t...
Aside from having the longest episode title in Basement history, the latest entry in our eight-year-long series also marks the first time ...
It all begins anew at about 8:20 a.m.! That's when We Came from the Basement begins it's new season, on a brand new station: Rad...
