RKSS brings Summer of 84 to The Basement

Few things get Shawn and I as pumped as filmmakers sending us their movies to watch and review. In fact, the only thing more exciting is getting to talk to said filmmakers about said movie we're reviewing.

And that's exactly what's happening this week, as Montreal-based filmmaking collective RKSS (Roadkill Superstars) speak to us about their latest movie, Summer of 84, which hits select cinemas on Friday.

Yes, we've seen the movie, and we're going to review it as well!

Who are RKSS? They are the writing/directing trio Francois Simard, Anouk Whissell and Yoan-Karl Whissell, who made the cult hit Turbo Kid.

While that movie was set in an alternate reality/post apocalyptic 1997, Summer of 84 is a grounded-in-reality tale that takes place during, you guessed it, the summer of 1984, and features a group of teens contending with a potential serial killer.

We're stoked to talk with this talented group of Canadian filmmakers, and review their movie on the day of its release. You'll hear a portion of the interview Friday during our segment on the Radio NL 610 AM Morning Show, along with the review. The full interview will play on the extended-cut podcast on Sunday.

Stick with us!

Review: The Proposal (2018)

"Admit it: that was cool as fuck."

Star Marc Natoli says that line about half way through the action short The Proposal, and there's no better way to sum the film up. Although just 10 or so minutes long, The Proposal is everything an action fan could ask for.

In fact, the only complaint I've got is I wanted more!
