Critic Reviews for Basket Case 3: The Progeny
Here, normality is relative, while batshit comes on tap... No matter that the humour is uneven when there is so much jaw-dropping insanity to spare.
Audience Reviews for Basket Case 3: The Progeny
I'm over it.
Third part in Frank Henlotter's Basket Case trilogy is an amusing little film, but it does show that Henelotter's creativity with his series is starting to wane and you can see that the film tries too hard at being an inventive horror comedy. The result is a decent film that boasts all the bizarre tricks that you'd expect from, Henlotter's series. The film is certainly lots of fun, but lacks what the first one did so well and that was being a well made low budget horror yarn that used some great special effects to create something totally off the wall. The second one was well made as well, and offered a new twist on the first. This third part is much more ridiculous and in many ways it succeeds at being quite different than the previous two entries. If you're looking for a piece of eccentric cinema, check this film out as it is among the most insane films of the genre. Henenlotter may have made better films, but Basket Case 3 is still entertaining despite the tongue in cheek approach to the material, and it definitely should appeal to fans of the first two films. I enjoyed the film, but felt it was a little bland due to the fact that Basket Case was such a great little low budget horror flick. The film needed a bit more substance to its story, and it could have been slightly better as well. However this is a decent final entry in the Basket Case entry, and it's a good thing that they didn't keep making these movies. At least they made a fairly entertaining third part that had some good moments despite its flaws.
In which Duane continues along the path of insanity while Belial becomes a father, and then later, Robo-Belial. In any other series of films, such things may seem strange...
