Frank Henenlotter adds another "what in the hell is this" movie to the horror genre. The plot is...absurd, in a perfect 80's type of way.

Even with the slower scenes it's entertaining enough and Belial looks awesome. Also: great idea for a Halloween costume.

Its low budget shows: terrible acting and pretty silly looking effects elicit much laughter. But the idea is so bizarre and twisted, and the story itself continues to lead to such depraved alleys that I have to admire it for sheer audacity. It was a lot more fun and interesting than most other horror from this period.

Basket Case is one of those B-movies that is so atrociously disgusting, sleazy, and laugh-out-loud corny you can't help but have so much fun watching it. Frank knew he had a 0 budget and he totally went for it!

A sub-Cohen work of '80s trash horror about a man and his hideously deformed Siamese brother seeking vengeance against the surgeons who separated them, Basket Case suffers from the limitations of its budget and some apocalyptically bad acting but reveals a surprising depth of empathy for its murderous principal characters that makes it almost passable. Still, even with some compelling stop-motion scenes and a good dose of odd humour, the film's never more than a minute away from lousiness.

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 and eccentrics with bizarre and downright 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.

It's as brilliantly ridiculous and hilarious as "Brain Damage" and is generally a better film, Belial is no Aylmer though, which is really what counts.

This is not a good film, but you should watch it. The acting is downright terrible and the effects are pretty bad. Despite its shortcomings Basket Case still manages to be pretty damned creepy because of its premise.

if you can manage to read the synopsis without wanting to watch this that you probably shouldn't. otherwise, it's game on for some cheesy 80's horror.

A serviceable genre film that works equally as a slice of grindhouse trash as it does a cinematic love letter to the same.

An 80's B-horror classic. It could have had a lot more impact with a higher budget and better acting, but there are a few dozens movies made during this time I can say that about. Bottom line: Good enough to watch.

I really admire directors who have a weird, simple idea, and are able to see their low budget project through to completion. Peter Jackson's Bad Taste springs to mind. I could tell Basket Case was a labor of love. I enjoyed the weirdness of the main character, and I really loved the creature itself; cheesy looking, yet oddly creepy. And the gore effects were surprisingly decent. A great movie to watch while drinking with your buddies.

Although there is actually something creepy about this movie, most of its charm is of the "so bad it's good" variety. Not just the acting but the dramaturgy and characterizations are hilariously caricaturistic across the board. The film actually has a great pace and is enjoyable regardless of its many laugh-out-loud "WTF" moments. For the very low budget, even the effects are pretty decent. Great popcorn movie to watch with friends.
