The Basement starring Mischa Barton coming this September

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

I'm not exactly sure why but I have a thing for Mischa Barton. I never watched the O.C., and I'm pretty sure I never saw any of her movies before about a year or so ago now when she started being in every single straight-to-VOD flick along with Tara Reid. All the same, I dig Barton's style and thus I'm interested in checking out her new SPLIT-style thriller.

And speaking of which, Brian Conley & Nathan Ives' split personality chiller THE BASEMENT starring Barton held its World Premiere at last year's Shriekfest, and today we have word that the film is headed to theaters and VOD this September. You can check out the DVD cover art below. Barton (THE SIXTH SENSE) stars in the unique new horror film which is being described as: 

A cross between ‘Silence of the Lambs’ and ‘Split,’ The Basement is about a L.A. serial killer known as The Gemini (Jackson Davis), who tortures and ultimately murders his victims in the dungeon-like basement of his San Fernando Valley home. By the time the movie opens, Gemini has already claimed seven victims, all of whom he has horrifyingly maimed and decapitated with a blowtorch, but Craig Owen (Cayleb Long), the famed musician who Gemini has chosen for his eighth victim, and Craig’s beautiful wife Kelly (Mischa Barton) prove every bit the killer’s equal in the art of psychological warfare, giving rise to one of the more diabolical plot twists in recent memory. 

Featuring “stellar lead performances” (Dread Central) from the cast – which also includes Jackson Davis, Cayleb Long, Tracie Thoms, Bailey Anne Borders and Sarah Nicklin – THE BASEMENT is ripe for exploring this fall. THE BASEMENT gets a 10-market theatrical and digital release from Uncork’d Entertainment on September 15th.
