Storyline

Do You Like My Basement? tracks how one man's creative frustration bore a need to make the perfect horror film. Stanley Farmer was rejected universally by the film world. His frustration provoked a darker side and soon cunning, guile, devilish charm and a sociopath's streak compelled him to produce a home-made magnum opus. A film that blurs the lines between reality and fiction and demands the attention of the very world that spurned him. Written by Roger Sewhcomar

No, can't say that I do.
29 January 2014 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

OK, for a microscopical budget, the movie acted like it supposed to: simple, natural, nothing out of the ordinary. Positive aspects: the acting, believe it or not, was good, damn good I might say for some "off the street" actors, the main one had a great voice, which sustained the plot heavily, cause it mostly relies on it, the place picked, again, a good choice, simple, effective and slightly claustrophobic.

Is it a horror tho? Is it something like "The rise of Leslie Vernon"?, or "The hills run red"? No. Far from it actually. It's a movie, filmed, showing how one wants to make a movie, a whole lot of talking and a bad ending in my opinion.

So reasons to recommend? If you like horror generally, and you wanna see one to pass some time, this one won't do. You could get bored. You will get bored. It all could have been saved with a greater ending, but it looks like they lost all inspiration there. Till that point tho, better than average, good use of a really small budget, could even be called a small inspiration to others. Rather than rely on useless, horrible CGI, try something that won't upset the eye, but intrigue the brain.

Anyway, sadly, "Do you like my basement" is a movie that wanted to succeed, but in a race against itself, it managed to finish last.
