    I used to rent horror movies off the shelf at video stores just because their covers were creepy. This was one of the first ones I rented. Ahh, the good old days of VHS horror. (=

    1982 was a fucking kicks ass year for horror films. I see 3 on this list, and I think that’s the most of any year on your lists.

    Still there were so many horror films made in 1982, and I don’t know if there’s one I don’t like lol.

    LMAO! I remember renting this film back in 1985 when I was 9.

    I can’t believe I don’t own this film LMMFAO! Fuck it, I’m buying this shit today lol!

    I really liked this review so I bought it and watched it with my friends. Thanks for not mentioning the rape scene, it made for quite and awkward moment when the lump of flesh was humping the dead girl. Mutant Siamese-twin necrophilia, it was truly messed up. Apart from that it was great and I really enjoyed your view on the movie.

    Why would you want to look at a dead frog stuck to the tire of a car? The first thing I’d do would be to look away.

      Is that the one they find a mate for the Basket freak? I found that one hilarious lol

    I just obtained a copy of Basket Case 3, still sealed, for $6. It is very out-of-print and the lowest price on Amazon for a new copy is $49, with used copies just a little behind that. I guess this means I made a …good buy?

    I actually rented this movie with my elder cousins… It always blew me off and, since TMNT already aired (and became a frigging media phenomenon by the time i could see this film), in a way i always thought that Krang and the Basket freak were related… There is a Splatterhouse spirit all over it, though probably is the other way around.

    I knew James had bad taste in music, but the use of Green Day just cements it.

    • December 16, 2015 at 9:25 pm

      Are you kidding me? He likes rock and Metal old school…go back listen your shitty rap of dubstep

    Green Day goes well with any emotional horror movie.

    Lol, I made it a point to watch Basket Case this month and it was definitely something. Had fun watching it and boy, I did enjoy the women in this movie. Very sexy I thought. Didn’t the second one, but I did see the third one. Going from the first straight to the final film was a big jump. They go completely over the top with the concept and it’s fucking disgusting, insane, and glorious. It’s definitely something I’d recommend giving a watch.

    The last scene (won’t ruin it for anybody) unique and hilarious.

    This move is a rip off of an old twilight zone episode, where there’s a guy who’s twin brother is his hand.
    The brother gives him thoughts to kill others, especially when he’s trying to date at a bar.
    His brother is also his main act, as he’s a ventriloquist, and his brother, of course, speaks the roles of the dummy.

    So if you wondered where this idea came from – twilight zone :p

    Isn’t it funny how you can watch some for free and others you have to pay for on the internet? It’s hit and miss.

    my friends uncle made this movie. He is also responsible for a load of other great underground horror movies. The scene with the twin nurses happens to be my friends mother and her twin sister. What a great flick.

    Man, I watched the trilogy a little while back and it’s fucking ape shit. The little monster gets a girlfriend that’s just like him, they fuck, have an entire family, and that’s after meeting up with a house of deformed people who are cared for by a sweet lady. The last movie pretty much features Basketcase vs a town Sheriff. I’d recommend Cinemassacre going back to these one day personally.

    “Between two brothers”
    “Between two disturbing mutant lumps of flesh”
