I remember a movie/episode where it was about a typical 80's family. There was something about a mutant in the basement, it turned out he was a good natured monster. I remember him being obsessed with a plastic deer and wearing a party hat. I cant remember much else. I do remember feeling sorry for him. The mutant was thin and dessicated looking with protruding teeth. It didnt speak.

Any help would be awesome.

Thanks!

"The People Under The Stairs"?

There is a character named Roach who cannot speak because he has his toungue cut out. He most certainly can be described as a "good natured monster." However, I don't recall him wearing a party hat.

It wasn't The People Under the Stairs though it was a good suggestion. I'm trying to remember all I can about the movie/episode I am thinking of. The monster was disfigured, I remember the plot lay with the family above keeping it a secret. I remember a scene of it looking out of a basement window in a suburban home. I wish I could remember more, I must have been very young at the time I am thinking this must have been from the early 80's. I remember the effects not being bad, but that changes with time and perspective.

Sounds like "The Unseen" (1980)

That is another gooed suggestion, but still not it. I remember the creature looked thin and has exposed teethe near its mouth, like the lips had receded. The Unseen looks good though, I'll have to look it up.

Was it by chance "Masters of Horror: The Fair Haired Child"?

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
