Halloween Day by Day: Trick or Treat!

October. It's a time when the leaves start to fall, and the air gets crisper. It's a time when mysterious fogs start to roll through the trees, and strange sounds echo from the bushes. It's a time when the veil between the Living and the Dead tears a little.

It's a time when The Basement brings you "Halloween Day by Day"!

That's right, we're back for a FULL MONTH of horror related news and reviews!  The gang has some great treats for you... and maybe a trick up their sleeves.

What sort of stuff do we have to offer this year?  Well- let's reach into the candy bowl, and find out:

Mike S will be bringing you horror book reviews every Tuesday, and comic reviews on Saturdays.  Mondays will see him counting out some of his "Top Five Lists", while checking out "The Omen" movies on Wednesdays.  Friday's is "tip and sip time" as he kicks back and samples some horror and October themed brews.  And don't worry - he hasn't forgotten Sundays and Thursdays!  You can expect a wide range of horror movies to be reviewed by him on those days!  So, make sure you check here DAILY to see what's new!

But!  There's more goodies to be had.  Jay and Marcus Flor will be popping in as well with their own spooky offerings!  They've been locked up in their mad science labs concocting strange potions and conducting unnatural experiments that they'll be revealing this month!

And!  That's right- there's an AND!  If scheduling permits, Mike S might also be able to hijack our Twitter account in order to do another 24 hour horror movie tweet along!  Stay tuned for more on that as "Halloween Day by Day" progresses!

Woooo!  It's a scare packed month ahead, and we invite you to join us for the party!

#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
