Basil (1998) short review

This is one of those movies that shows up in your local video store and you’re thinking, “Hmmm — I’ve never heard of it, which doesn’t bode well, but then it could be interesting and it certainly has good actors in it…” Well, your first hunch was right. Terrible straight to video movie with cheesy acting and dumb plot, plus it looks like the costume designer was given about a $5 budget.
