JY S (it) wrote: Jon Keeyes' Mad Bad is madly boring.Sporting a solid villain, which puts the mad and bad in Mad Bad, this picture delivers little else in its 85 minute run time. When all is said and done, the story falls flat with excitement and suspense showing up in very minute quantities.The violent material is made to be extreme; however, it is delivered in a mild way, which ends up falling in place with the rest of this picture.Vincent Riverside is worth noting as the film's main antagonist. His performance shines when compared to the rest of the cast. Denton Blane Everett is cast as the lead, but hands over a very uncharismatic performance. It matches well with the blandness of the film. Anna Zielinski and Landon Dunning provide much delight for the eyes.Brief flashback segments contain poor lighting, but when the lighting is adequate there isn't much to be excited for. Mad Bad is a mad pass.
Caleb C (nl) wrote: I do think Jeremy Irons was slightly off in some scenes here. This film however is very bland compared to all of Cronenbergs other films. It is not bad what is here, but nothing is really memorable here. No need for a second watch. The weird elements which are classic in Cronenberg films are what save this one entirely from becoming unwatchable. I can say that this is the only Cronenberg film I have seen that is nearly a flop. What this film needed was something out the realm of reality or some polishing on the script at least.. I could have gone without Irons saying "Butterfly" or "Oh, Butterfly" passionetly every 5 minutes of the film it seemed. Either way, this is worth a look for any hardcore Cronenberg fan even though, it doesn't entirely flow that well with his other work.

Damien K (au) wrote: Wonderful first film with decent acting by total unknowns who also went on to do nothing else. Reading about it recently, I learned that Van Sant refused to cast Walt Curtis as himself because people look down on 40 year old men lusting after teen Mexican boys. I thought that was hypocritical of Gus Van Sant. However, I thought Tim Streeter was great and he was attractive, while Curtis was gross, creepy and ugly and to be honest I wouldn't have liked this movie as much. Guess that makes me a hypocrite. On the other hand, it seems there are a lot of successful Hollywood movies where older men sleep with teenage boys (and girls) which I would have thought too disturbing for mainstream audiences. Just goes to show ya!

Christopher B (ru) wrote: This recently aired on TCM but learned about it through a documentary titled Z Channel: A Magnificent Obsession. Watch this film the first time on DVD and it blew me away technically. It also has the most realistic, up-close battle scenes at Normandy 23 years prior to Saving Private Ryan.
Tim S (us) wrote: This trash cinema classic was an early staple of VHS splatterfests, and even though it's definitely a dated film, the entertainment value still holds up. Basket Case is not just a horror film, it's sort of an amalgam of different things. It has some nice gory moments, some strange horrific scenes, an odd brother-to-brother relationship and also some great smile-inducing stop motion animation. It was shot for next to nothing and it really shows. Despite its lacking of financial resources, the film is fun and entertaining if you're in the mood for something strange or just different. It's hard to curry sympathy for a guy who basically is a willing accessory to murder, but somehow Frank Henenlotter pulled it off. It has two sequels, and as of this writing, I haven't seen any of them but since they were all directed by the same man, I wouldn't mind checking them out sometime. Definitely see it if you're a fan of Frankenhooker, or if you just want something less tasteful.
