The Basement has the feel of a stilted Off-Off-Broadway audition piece.

A decent bad guy is not enough to carry a film, even a horror film. I need to care whether or not the characters survive. I need to be entertained by quality gore. I needed much more than The Basement has to offer.

This wince-inducing endurance test makes the Saw movies appear downright moralistic.

[For] low-budget horror, The Basement certainly isn't the worst, but it's far from the best. It's a good time-killer with great gore and decent performances, a nice background while you play that game on your phone. Don't expect anything more.

A very minor addition to an ugly horror subgenre.

Sep 13, 2018 | Rating: D+ | Full Review…

Not an effective scare zone, best enjoyed as a chance to watch a few actors hustle to showcase their stuff, handed ample screen time to work through a range of bizarre encounters.
