The Basement Reviews

    When your horror movie about a man who has been abducted and being tortured makes me laugh, that probably isn't a good thing. Although the actor playing the villain is doing his best, the script is poorly written. Another thing dragging this movie down are mentions of random things by the villain that leave the audience very confused as they are mentioned and go nowhere and are never explained. Mess of a movie but great if you and your mates want something to pass the time.

    This is pretty bad. It's like it's trying to be Split, and Saw-ish, but ultimately feels like a low budget student film. I do not recommend you give it a shot.

    If you are into poorly acted horror that barely pays off as torture porn in the last 30 seconds, look no further. This is a wasteful film in that the production dollars spent could have easily funded someone to actually look at the script in order to make it palatable. I literally created an account on RT in order to express how poor this film is, it's that bad.

    This film is better than you might guess from the reviews. It does not follow a usual, predictable arc, and theres a few surprising moments and some real tension. Its not always realistic but its a horror movie after all. You genuinely dont know how its going to end. Theres a little too much of the predictable dialog like "you dont have to do this" and such, and more gore than necessary (ok, thats a weird metric!). I found I was good to stick it out to the end and that was worth it.

    When watching the trailer, you can tell this is a b rated movie. I feel like the ending they tried to do this BIG PLOT TWIST, but it came off as sloppy and stupid. How did the sister find everything out, why is the relationship so great she can admit what she knows and have her brother act weak and scared? Obviously the dude has mental issues, this just seemed like they played into too much. All in all, I only finished it because i started it.

    Pathetic. Horrible acting, no storyline, and overall just cringy

    Pretty good low budget, small cast film. Worth a watch.

    Reminded me a bit of Split. Decent but the script didn't do anything imaginative

    NOT BAD, SOME GOOD DARK HUMOR, DISTURBING GORE, AND A DECENT STORY WITH A TWIST. THE WIFE AND HER FRIEND DID A HORRIBLE JOB AT ACTING THEIR PARTS, THE OTHER ACTORS DID A GOOD JOB.

    This movie is amazing. Acting is great. And it's fun to boot. We were thoroughly entertained. As usual the "critics" are morons and don't know anything about decent movies. Watch this one!
