The B. Harrison Smith interview and The Tokoloshe

'Twas a great show last night on the mighty Radio NL 610 AM Kamloops, but not everyone got to tune in, and some want to tune in again. Which is where the magic of the Internet comes into play...

Submitted for the approval of Basement Dwellers everywhere, here's the podcast version of the latest broadcast... From The Basement!

And to make it worth your while, Jason and Shawn present the full interview with filmmaker B. Harrison Smith. That's right, you only got about five to six minutes last night. But here are the more than 10 minutes Jason and Harrison talked about his upcoming film The Special, the state of the film industry, and why horror remains such an important genre. It's a gooder, as we say in Canada, eh.

But that's not all, as Jason and Shawn review the upcoming South African horror film The Tokoloshe, which is about a malicious trickster who preys on children. The film hits Dec. 3. Is it worth your time and dollar? Stick with us!

And stick around for a DVD review by Mike S, a rundown of the weekend's entertainment options, and some chatter about the upcoming CW Arrowverse Crisis, the action flick Hydra, and more! It's nerd porn for those who don't like nerd porn. So push play, and enjoy.



From The Basement returns next Friday, Nov. 29, at 6:05 P.M. on Radio NL 610 AM Kamloops as Jason and Shawn interview martial-arts filmmaker Jennifer N. Linch. Stick with us!

#CocktailHour: Slushtail

  Summer approaches, inspiring thoughts of sunshine, backyard parties, and having a tip and sip with friends.  With that in mind, I bring you this week sunny beverage. To make a slushtail, mix a can of frozen orange juice, a can of frozen lemonade (or limeade), a can of pineapple juice, a couple cups of black tea (or English Breakfast), and two cups of bourbon- such as Southern Comfort, in a pitcher.  When it's all nicely mixed, put it in the freezer until it's a nice slushy consistency. Scoop the slush into a cocktail glass, and pour in some Sprite or 7-Up.  Add a little umbrella for some frivolous fun, and a straw. Voila!  Ready to enjoy. This is a very refreshing drink.  The fruit juices, Sprite, and bourbon- when chilled makes for a great punch-like drink.  The bourbon doesn't overwhelm juices.   In fact, they are all nicely balanced in terms of flavors.  The sourness of the citrus fruits contrasts well with the slightly sweeter Southern Comfort.  It was refreshing enou

Marcus Flor vs Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

In film, there's nothing I enjoy more than passionate creativity. Compared to the sea of mediocrity surrounding it, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is practically overflowing with it. This animated movie is vibrant, kinetic, and extremely inventive with its art style. On top of all that, this is just a solid movie. It tells its story with sincerity and tact, always focusing on the important aspects of Miles' emotional journey. The script wastes no time on pointless scenes or moments, which also gives the film an energetic rhythm that draws you in. One of the other great aspects of this movie is its reinvention of the Spider-Man story. It's clever writing demonstrates a true understanding of the webslinger, and offers commentary on the current state of his movie adaptations. In the end, you get a film both Spidey fans and non-fans can enjoy. Above all other aspects, what I like most about Spider-Verse is how fun it is. It demonstrates quality animation and filmmaking doesn

From The Basement - the "final" three

Just a gentle reminder From The Basement returns next Friday -- June 11 -- to the mighty Radio NL with an all-new episode! That's the good news. The bad news it'll be the first of our final three prime-time shows. What, you might ask? Are you bastards quitting AGAIN!?!? No. No we're not. We learned our lesson the last time. Shawn and I's long-running show will return to being "just a podcast," and not adhering to any set broadcast schedule. Why, you ask? Our lives are becoming increasingly busy outside of The Basement, and it's getting harder for Shawn and I to keep up with the latest movies, TV shows and entertainment news. We'd rather cease our weekly duties than produce an inferior product. Simple as that. Much thanks to Howie Reimer and the Radio NL crew for hosting us the last three years, first as a Friday morning segment, then as a prime-time series. It's been a blast! Don't worry, we're not coasting on these last three episodes. T
