    Basket Case plain and simple is just a good, entertaining, funny, scary low budget film that proves what can be done with a little bit of money some people and some cameras. At times Basket Case is pretty frightening, but typically that is quickly counterbalanced with splashes of laughs. A great midnight movie and I tip my hat to Frank Henenlotter for creating a film that got put into the Museum of Modern Art with an unbelievable budget of only $35,000. "THE TENANT IN ROOM 7 IS VERY SMALL, VERY TWISTED, AND VERY MAD"

    Better if you just watch it without getting a synopsis but this is one of my personal favs.

    You know what you're getting yourself into with this one, so over-critiquing is a huge waste of time. Its cheesy, yet has a darkness to it that resonates. You almost feel a little gritty at times throughout. I reccomend this for anyone who is new to cult horror films.

    Haha, gross. Campy gory B movie horror. Wonderfully over the top. Often funny, though I wonder how intentional. That acting, wow. Those effects, amazing.

    Found this movie to be ridiculously stupid. Not much about it was good. The premise seemed to be stupid and ended up being lousy. The effects were very bad even for the '80s.
