Upon my 98th viewing of basket case it’s dawned upon me this film is a perfect metaphor for my relationship with my penis...
The 4K remaster of basketcase is jaw dropping by the way
I’m Reviewing this strictly within the no budget lost horror world of the 80s into the early 90s. Having said that, Soultangler is a nuts masterpiece. You get some solid effects, lots of gore, all the over acting by non actors you can handle, and some really great dream sequences and an awesome techno punk score. But what might set this apart from other lost z grade movies of the day is how competently things are shot. You don’t expect…
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Such a great metaphor for the hilarity and stupidity of war. In particular the Spanish civil war.
2 clowns fight for the affection of a curvy trapeze artist (Spain), one is heavy handed and drunk (the Nationalist) while the other is sweet timid (the republic). It takes almost a full movie of abuse for the timid clown to finally snap and go on a rampage but when he does it's a thing of beauty.
I really also commend the ending for telling it like it is, nobody gets the girl(Spain) but the church.
