Sunday Bloody Sunday Matinee: The Basement [Film]

Welcome to Day 7 of Trainwreck’d Society’s Annual Month of Horror Showcase! We have a fully loaded month of all things horror for you fine folks! October is our favorite month for this very reason, and we are so excited to share 31 full days of film showcases and interviews with some of the finest folks from the world of horror, just as we have been doing for the last 5 years. What started as a simple 5 day showcase, has now blossomed into a full blown month long event. You’re going to love this! Enjoy!

“Craig is abducted and wakes up in a basement. His captor, Bill, is a twisted serial killer who wishes to reenact his own capture, with Craig playing the part of Bill and Bill playing everyone else. As Bill tortures Craig, he cycles through a number of personas, all while Craig tries desperately to find a way into Bill’s pathology in order to save himself.” October Coast PR

Holy shit Folks! I have to kick this thing off my stating that while this is indeed a wonderful horror film, it’s actually a whole lot more than that. It’s a truly original and wonderful FILM, regardless of what genre it should reside in. The Basement truly has it all. As one would obviously expect simply by the description, the performances are absolutely incredible. I mean, Jackson Davis literally has to do 12 different roles! Well, maybe 13 to 14, depending on how you look at it in the end. Anyway, damn the performances from Davis and Cayleb Long are absolutely phenomenal and are worth the viewing of this brilliant film in itself. It’s actually tough to decide which personality was my favorite, as they were all done so damn well.

Beyond the brilliant acting work completed in this magnificent film, it is really just a brilliant story brought to screen. This is a brilliantly written work of art that contains everything you would want from not only a horror or thriller film, but a film in general. Filmmaker Brian M. Conley manages bring every element of surprise imaginable to this film, literally up to the very end of the film. It is a cinematic experience in which you should really go into watching it with an expectation of the unexpected is going to most definitely occur. I simply cannot say enough great things about this wonderfully done film. It’s as gruesome as it is dramatic, and as fascinating as it is terrifying.

The Basement is available now on VOD, wherever you stream great films.
