One of the most beloved, cheerfully demented cult classics of all time is back: Frank Henenlotter's 1982 BASKET CASE!
Duane Bradley (the goofily appealing Kevin VanHentenryck) checks into a sleazy 42nd Street flophouse with a mysterious wicker basket. Inside the basket is, of course, Duane's hideously misshapen Siamese twin brother, Belial, who was severed from his side when they were children and rudely left for dead in a garbage bag!
But Belial survived, and Duane hit the Big Apple with his beastly "bro" to wreak havoc on the surgeons who separated them. Things gets complicated, however, when Duane gets romantically sidetracked by the wig-wearing receptionist (Terri Susan Smith) of one of the doomed doctors, and his twisted telepathic sibling reacts poorly. And violently...
With memorably gruesome scenes - the multiple scalpels in the face is a particular favorite - and some disturbing stop-motion animation with Belial. It's gory and great, scary and sick, twisted and terrific. In other words, it's everything you could possibly want in a motion picture and then some.
After almost a decade, this macabre midnight movie hit, which inspired two sequels) is once again available on video, but this time in a stunning, digitally remastered, uncut, director-approved edition made from the 35mm internegative.
Plus, as a special bonus, there's also the original theatrical trailer and riotous, never-before-seen outtakes and behind-the-scenes footage from Henenlotter's private collection!
Trust me, even if you think you've seen this movie, you'll be knocked out of your bloody basket by this print! -- Dennis Dermody, THE PAPER
