BASKET CASE - Special Edition DVD

This text will be replaced by the player

     Carrying a mysterious wicker basket around with him, Duane Bradley arrives in Manhattan and checks into a sleazy Times Square hotel. What’s in the basket, you ask? Why, Duane’s hideously misshapen Siamese twin brother, Belial, of course! Originally born attached to Duane’s side, the little monster was surgically removed by some quack doctors and rudely left for dead in a plastic garbage bag. But Belial survived, and Duane has hit the Big Apple with his beastly bro to wreak havoc on the surgeons who separated them. Things get complicated, however when Duane gets romantically sidetracked by the sexy, wig-wearing receptionist of one of the doomed doctors, and his jealous telepathic sibling reacts...well, poorly
     With memorably gruesome scenes (the multiple scalpels stuck in a screaming face is a particular favorite) and dome disturbing stop-motion animation, Frank Henenlotter’s BASKET CASE - finally available on Special Edition DVD! - is one of the most beloved, cheerfully demented cult clasicks of all time, and a midnight movie hit that inspired two sequels.
