Do You Like My Basement

Synopsis: Do You Like My Basement? tracks how one man's creative frustration bore a need to make the perfect horror film. Stanley Farmer was rejected universally by the film world. His frustration provoked a darker side and soon cunning, guile, devilish charm and a sociopath's streak compelled him to produce a home-made magnum opus. A film that blurs the lines between reality and fiction and demands the attention of the very world that spurned him.

Alone in the world

and I thought boy...

Okay, okay, good.

That's enough.

Please sit down.

That was good.

Thanks, Chad.

Now, can you tell me something

personal about yourself?


personal about myself?


I'll give you an example.

When I was six years old,

I received a large, red,

plastic, Formula One

racing car for Christmas.

It cost my parents an

arm and a leg back then

and they thought I would

cherish it.

I had, in fact, asked

for a toy robot,

one that showed pictures

of the moon on the front,

but they ignored my request

and bought me this car,

which I had to sit

inside of and pedal to make go.

It was the most disappointing

moment in my life.

I understand.

When I was a kid, my favorite

thing to do at Christmas

was to help my mom bake cookies

for Santa so he and the

reindeer could have

a snack after

delivering our presents.

One Christmas,

my mom burnt her mouth

on a cookie hot out

of the oven.

I laughed 'cause

I thought she was joking,

and she slapped me

hard in the face.

It was the first

time she had ever hit me.

My father broke up with her

shortly after that Christmas.

We never made cookies again.

Chad, tell me, how could you

make that story better,

when reciting it?

Slap my mom back?

Now tell me, what you are

willing to do to get this part?

I'll do anything.

I can be at rehearsals.

I have a day job, but my

dedication is next to none.

I'll be punctual.

That's all fine, Chad.

But what are you willing to do

beyond the normal

requirements to get the role?

I'm not sure

I get what you mean.

It's simple.

Are you willing to go

beyond the normal requirements

to get this role?

Is there something

specific you want me to do?

Chad, how would you feel

if the inside of this basement
