5.0 out of 5 stars BUY IT NOW !
Wow ! I've seldom seen such cheap, stupid trash and I mean that in a good way. You get everythin a trash-fan could want, a freak with 27 noses, a freak with worms instead of an eyeball, a young pretty girl that house a giant-snake in her stomach called Bernard, a psycho-grannie, a pregnant meat loaf, two meat loafs doing it and that isn't all ! Worth a watch for...

3.0 out of 5 stars Watchable...
I loved the original Basket Case as it was something different, and I could not wait to see the sequels, but what is with these freaks they've added? They look like something you're likely to see on a children's program. I have no idea why they've rated this an 18, 15 yeah, but 18!? It looks more like a Ghoulies film.

Anyway it's worth watching just to see what...

Worth a watch for gorehounds as well, but trash-fans AREN'T trash-fans if they don't have this in their collection, trust me !

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but very different to the original, 14 Mar 2013
This review is from: Basket Case 2/Basket Case 3 - The Progeny [DVD] (DVD)
Basket Case 2 takes place right after the original. And, if you've seen the original, you may be in for a surprise. The first instalment was pretty dark - about a young man who carries his psychotic miniature deformed brother around in a basket. However, number two immediately changes the genre slightly into more of a wacky comedy (yes, with a few murders in, but mainly it's played for laughs).

A lot of people who saw the first film see it as a cult classic (yes, it's cheesy, but still pretty enjoyable nonetheless), so when number two shifted gear it took a lot of stick. Not only does the overall atmosphere change, but the central two characters - one being the `basket case' himself - are slightly pushed out of the forefront of the story - another reason Basket Case purists see the sequels as a step in the wrong direction.

However, if you look at number two on its own, it's reasonably enjoyable (in a silly kind of dumb way). Number three follows on from number two straight away, but keeps the same comedy feel with horror as a secondary part to it.

I quite enjoyed all three of them. However, the general consensus is that you should stick to the first one if you like horror films. The next two are pretty wacky. You have to be in the mood for such silliness, or a complete basket case (which I obviously am).

This review is from: Basket Case 2/Basket Case 3 - The Progeny [DVD] (DVD)
Basket case 2 and 3 are perfect films if you like films that are pretty crap but brilliant at the same time,this is a gore comedy series,not a million miles removed from the likes of braindead and bad taste.

The films are all about freaks who are protected by granny ruth who has a very sinister side to her if one of her family are threatened,she is sadistic and she unleashes manic deaths via her house of freaks to those who interfere.

The freaks are all so wacky looking that you cant help but laugh and the gore is so over the top that yet again you laugh so whats the harm in all that,the films dont run in a straight line and there is plenty of mindless enjoyment found in these two movies,it doesnt even matter if you have seen the original,the stories dont need much explaining,brilliant stuff in a macabre way.

Anyway it's worth watching just to see what happens to the brothers, and what the babies end up looking like, but neither film has a storyline like the first, so try not to expect too much.
