If ZERO had been an option on the voting scale I'd have most certainly selected it. As it happens, ONE was the lowest available.

"Basement" has one merit and that's that it made me sign up for IMDb so that I could share with the world what an abysmal waste of time and money this film is.

What is unbelievable is the idea that someone, somewhere, thought that this thing could be viable for production and that nobody along the way was honest enough to tell the director, the producers or whoever that perhaps jacking it in would have been more dignified.

There's no danger of a spoiler because this film is about nothing. In theory the premises are interesting, not miles away from The Hole. A group of people are lost in the woods and end up in a dark and creepy basement. "Wow" you'd think, "Great!". No it isn't. This is where it all ends. The rest is some sort of tedious, repetitive, shallow, unengaging and inconsequential bilge. It goes nowhere. It says nothing. It's not even dumb. I guess it's the closest a film ever got to representing the concept of nothingness which, in a way, is actually an achievement.

Oh, and by the way, the acting is the worst ever. By far. Times ten.

"Basement" is like a Year-9 project carried out by a group of kids messing about with some recording equipment. Except worse.
