When it comes to the best basements in film and TV, the competition isn’t that fierce. Basements are generally places where bad things happen in horror flicks or serial killers go to traumatize their victims in police procedurals. Audiences tend to associate basements with evil, not good. Which is a shame, because with a little TLC (or some choice weed from the kids in That '70s Show), basements can be ideal hangout spots. Especially when you live in the ‘70s and have nowhere else to go.
Despite what popular culture might have you believe, basements aren’t always spooky deathtraps. You might not want to step foot in the popular basements from Pulp Fiction or Psycho, but there are several other movies and TV shows that manage to give basements a good name. These are the best fictional basements to hang out in. Vote up the ones where you'd actually want to spend your time!
