Frank Henenlotter United States, 1982

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.
