One of the most entertaining indie horror movies I have seen. The minor characters chew scenery like crazy, and the monster is a sight to behold.

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.

Revenge is a dish best served by a teratomatous scone of flesh with the face of David Letterman. Sent me to my laughing place more than a couple times.

Shy dude walks the streets of NY with his deformed brother in a basket. Murky, earthtoned and often disgusting. What's not to love here?

Definitely a bad horror movie, but not devoid of entertainment. It's labeled as a comedy, but I'm not really sure if that's intentional. The story's shaky, but at least it makes decent sense. Despite some really sub-par special effects, it does a fair job of making the horror scenes shocking and weird.

Oh my ! Low budget, low(ish) production values, wierdly unconvincing effects but a daringly audacious plotline. Acting is not so much wooden as dead - it nearly makes it into the 'so bad it's good' category. Not one to change your plans for.

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.

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.

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

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!

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.

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.

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.
