Basket Case 1982

Basket Case

Critics Consensus

While Basket Case definitely delivers all the gonzo gore promised by its cracked premise, it's really set apart by its rich vein of genuine pathos.

    Gotta respect the classics, they're loads of fun, even if they do have arguably the worst acting in cinematic history.

    A completly mental concept executed with the lowest budget possible, pulling laughs everytime the creatures shows up, for it is so lamely made and executed, you almost feel sorry for this tragic violent beast. Not just that, the acting is one of the worse ever seen but it complements the cheesiness of it all so well, it actually works. It's only shocking because of the atrocious sound design that got on my nerves more than once, but again, it just works since the rest of it so lame. A definite watch for fans of the genre and to discover Henenlotter's mental style, to serve as an appetite for his upcomingly mental Brain Damage.

    Basket Case was 1 of my favorite horror movies when I was little.After watching it recently, I cant believe I use to like it so much.Its an OK movie but the acting & special effects are so bad in some parts, You can't help but laugh.It seemed more like a horror comedy then a horror flick but maybe that was what the director was going for.Makes me wonder.......
