Carrying a mysterious wicker basket wherever he goes, Duane Bradley checks into a flea-bag hotel in New York’s Times Square. What’s in the basket, you ask? Why, it’s Duane’s hideously misshapen Siamese twin brother, Belial! Together, they’re in town to hunt down and wreak havoc on the sleazy surgeons who separated them… With memorably gruesome scenes – such as the screaming woman with the scalpels stuck in her face – and some disturbing stop-motion animation, Frank Henenlotter’s BASKET CASE is one of the most beloved, cheerfully demented cult classicks of all time. So go ahead and open the basket… if you dare!
Cast: Kevin Van Hentenryck, Terri Susan Smith, Beverly Bonner
