Basket Case (1982)
An excellent comedy horror which shocks, enthralls and resonates with you as soon as you view it.
I watch this film initially over two years ago. I watched it with my best friend Leo, and neither of us had any expectations or idea what this film was about. From beginning to end, the film took me in. It's a rare surprise; and a cheap, classic b-movie. It is often hilarious, often sexy, often shocking - but always entertaining.
The film takes place in New York, where a young man arrives with a basket. With the contents of the Basket remaining mysterious for the first half of the film - which creates a fantastic atmosphere - this gives us a chance to explore the character of Duane Bradley. The second half of the film centres around the contents of the Basket.
The film was made on an extraordinarily small budget which can be noticed with the films lo-fi feel and silly action scenes. However I was able to overlook this fact due to the excellent content of the movie. (One of the most memorably scene in the movie - the stop-motion scene - is one of the silliest yet riviting moments in the film).
This film was a rare find for my friend and I, and I believe that this movie will stay with me forever. I cannot praise the director enough for creating something like Basket Case on such a low budget - it is pure commitment.
I give this movie 10/10
