Jay sat down to discuss Bill's return to arguably one of his most iconic roles; Otis Firefly from Rob Zombie's House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects. And you can see Bill as Otis once again when 3 From Hell opens on Sept 16.
Bill discusses how Zombie brought the Firefly clan back for one more killing spree, what it was like getting into Otis' mindset after a 14-year break, and why these films and characters endure. Bill is a class act with a great sense of humour, and he and Jay had a great 12-minute conversation. So yeah, ya'll need to hear this one!
And Jason and Shaw get into 3 From Hell as well. Yup, they've seen this bad boy, and sound off on it in a feature discussion. NOT a review, as those don't come out until next week. But they have a few words to say about it.
Shawn also gets political again about some other stuff, and uses words like oligopoly. Be patient with him. He was tired when this was recorded.

But before Jason and Shawn take their annual vacation from all things entertainment, they get roped into discussing a few things cinematic and musical.
By fan request, the Basement Boys talk the first single from Tool's new album, Fear Inoculum -- the band's first since 2006's 10,000 Days -- and their sudden recognition by Billboard. One of the Dynamic Duo is a Tool fan, the other is not. How does that sway the conversation? Stick with us!
Jason and Shawn also catch up with Mindhunter Season 2 and the first season of Wu Assassin, among other things. They've got a few thoughts on the just announced Matrix 4, the fate of Spider-Man in the MCU, and the new Rambo: Last Blood and Underwater trailers. Whoa!

That's right, Bad CGI Sharks: the new sharksploitation comedy from Matthew and Jason Ellsworth and Matteo Molinari. But it's not only a Deadpool-like spoof of shark movies; it's a commentary on filmmaking, brotherhood and being creative despite what anyone says.
A pretty heady mix for a movie called Bad CGI Sharks, right? So what do Jason and Shawn think of it? Is the movie worth your time and money? Are there boobies? Stick with us!

<img src="https://assets.podomatic.net/ts/85/2c/be/filmreviewsfromthebasement/3000x3000_14243346.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br />The Basement Boys return, and move further into the realm of all-things entertainment, with their latest interview... one steeped in the subject of science fiction.
Jay speaks with Tennessee physicist Leah Broussard, who is preparing to open a doorway into a parallel -- or mirror -- universe. How? Why? What secrets does she hope to unlock? These are the questions Jay asks, and Leah answers. And yes: some Stranger Things references are made.
Leah is one of us, and this is a fun, informative and entertaining conversation. It's also a sign of the times in The Basement, as we move away from -- but not completely out of -- the realm of movies and into the world of anything entertaining, and all the topics it offers up for discussion.
But fear not, Jason and Shawn do talk movies, Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and the new Zombieland trailer, to be specific. Plus Jay reviews Crawl and Shawn finally saw the end of Point Blank. There's also a discussion about back-to-back Halloween sequels.

Jason speaks with author, journalist and the world's leading expert on UFOs and conspiracy theories, Nick Pope! Yup, NICK POPE! And they're talking the Internet's latest viral sensation, Storm Area 51.

This is a great interview with the world's leading expert on the subject, and one all Basement Dwellers need to hear.

The Mead Cast
<img src="https://assets.podomatic.net/ts/85/2c/be/filmreviewsfromthebasement/3000x3000_14176235.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br />What, you ask, do a couple of guys who review movies know about mead? And, while on the subject, what qualifies them to review said mead on their show... which is supposed to be about movies and all things entertainment?
Well, mead is a drink, and drinks are an important part of many entertainment events, so put that in your pipe and smoke it!
Jason and Shawn do indeed talk mead -- an alcoholic beverage derived from honey -- and they do provide their two cents on some local brew, as per the request of the brewer. How do the Basement Boys do on their first alcohol review? Stick with us!
But the Dynamic Duo ARE movie and entertainment guys, so they weigh in on the Sean Connery classic The Presidio, and the trailer for Rian Johnson's upcoming mystery flick Knives Out starring current Bond, Daniel Craig. There's also a sad lament on the passing of Mad Magazine.

Deadsight hits DVD and VOD July 2.

While you won't get the usual Jason and Shawn banter, you do get Jason and Shawn's full interview with Elizabeth Thomson, the art director on Netflix's newest spooky creation, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina!

And that's what The Basement Boys are in for with this, the extended cut of Friday's segment on the Radio NL 610 AM Morning Show. Why, because they are venturing out of The Basement and into the cinema to see the new Halloween.
Jason is a long-time fan of the franchise and, for him, seeing this movie is bigger than catching The Force Awakens when it came out. Shawn, on the other hand, has always been more of a Jason Voorhees guy.
