Anyone see Basket Case?

And can tell me how it is? I sort of ordered it blind and want to see if I made a good choice. If you know the Special Edition and let me know all the good stuff it has with bonus and movie and all...Thanks for comments.

It's not for everyone, but if you like the look and style of Evil Dead 1 then it should be right up your alley.

Spoiler:
Memorable sex scene in the end

allot of people (that i know of) kind of able to accept Evil Dead as straight horror movie

but Basket Case is abit different. it's more like horror movie with lots of dark comedy in it... basicly, if you like Bad Taste, i think you should be able to appreciate Basket Case... not necesarily like it though

It's not too bad and I remember the extras were pretty good on the disc.

One of my true "guilty pleasures" - I love it! And the DVD has some nice extras.
