Critic Reviews for The Basement

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (1)

The Basement has the feel of a stilted Off-Off-Broadway audition piece.

September 11, 2018 | Full Review…

The Basement falters with a script that needed more attention paid to the dialogue. Entertaining? Sure, I suppose. Successful? Not quite. As a whole, they just can't seem to get up the stairs.

January 9, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/10 | Full Review…

A decent bad guy is not enough to carry a film, even a horror film. I need to care whether or not the characters survive. I need to be entertained by quality gore. I needed much more than The Basement has to offer.

This wince-inducing endurance test makes the Saw movies appear downright moralistic.

September 14, 2018 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

[For] low-budget horror, The Basement certainly isn't the worst, but it's far from the best. It's a good time-killer with great gore and decent performances, a nice background while you play that game on your phone. Don't expect anything more.

September 13, 2018 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

A very minor addition to an ugly horror subgenre.
