Ratings & Reviews

  1. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Basket Case

    2.7 stars. It starts of likeable in a lop-sided way, but becomes increasingly turgid. There is an interesting balance between the goofy and the truly grubby, which tips in favour of the latter with the grotesque and unnecessary rape scene. Others might argue this is what finally moves the film into horror, playing off an able-bodied audience's fear of the sexed disabled body. The puppet is winningly lumpy.

  2. Dada Kubin's rating of the film Basket Case

    And I thought Basket Case’s just a weird tale about an outsider’s revenge against those who forced him to conform, but then it turned out to be a Freudian metaphor about the sexual forces competing within a young man - those of love, lust, violence. The really crappy FX and the realistic early 80s New York milieu give the film a special feeling, an awkward mix of authenticity, amateurism and underground cinema.

  3. Pango's rating of the film Basket Case

    Funny, original, over the top, with likable characters and an horrible vestigial twin. Loved it.

  7. mondovideo's rating of the film Basket Case

    it's not a good movie by any means but it was hilarious

  8. Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Basket Case

    Schlocky n' trashy, but fun as hell late grindhouse-era film that may be pretty repetitive and unrefined, but is quite charming. Taking cues from H.G. Lewis and containing a grungy New York City atmosphere, the film often tells its narrative quite confidently-- such as the ease of the flashback scene around the hour mark-- and if it may not emote very well, it's quite a nifty late-night flick.

  10. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Basket Case

    Las aventuras de una cabeza vengadora separada de su hermano con el que se comunica mediante telequinesis. ¿Qué es más hilarante que eso?...así, también hay una violación.

  14. Clarissa's rating of the film Basket Case

    This movie is really growing on me. I was force to re watch this because it was claimed I did not give it a fair review during the first viewing. After watching it a second time I am finally beginning to see the campyness to this.... and it makes me want to Basket Case 2 and 3 now!

  18. courtneylesueur's rating of the film Basket Case

    Campy, and very entertaining. I hated the scene toward the end involving Sharon and Belial, but overall a good late night horror movie to watch and laugh at.

  21. lizle's rating of the film Basket Case

    When I first saw this movie, I thought what I sick mind this director has! So bad, and utterly ridiculous. And of course came Basketcase II

  22. Michael H.'s rating of the film Basket Case

    The production is raw to the point its charming, its 42nd Street location feels far more vivid than in more larger-scale stories, the actresses are unglamorous but more beautiful on screen, and Henenlotter’s mix of sympathetic characters with bizarre and ridiculous special effects and gross-out gore creates a film that, on a second viewing, is far more imaginative and interesting than more glossier horror films.
