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!
Here's a sick little movie for you--a creepy-funny shocker that's become a semi-cult classic since its release in 1982. It's a cheesy, low-budget horror flick about a small-town geek who arrives in New York City's Times Square carrying his mutant, telepathic twin brother in a big basket (hence the movie's title, get it?). They were once Siamese twins, and now they're seeking gory revenge against the doctors who surgically separated them against their will! Talk about brotherly love! The "normal" sibling has to keep his brother well- fed, and the basket-dweller's appetite runs the gamut from hamburgers to hookers. There's plenty of lowlife "meat" to be found in the seedy motel where the brothers live. Not exactly mainstream fare, as you might already have guessed, but director Frank Henenlotter handles the gruesomeness with resourceful ingenuity. The movie even gathered enough horror-buff momentum to spawn two lesser sequels in 1990 and 1992, which is all the proof you need to add this dubious trilogy to the gross-out hall of fame. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This movie is just way too ugly looking to be good. I know special effects shouldn't matter, but sometimes you need just a little bit to help push a picture along. Read morePublished on Aug. 17 2003 by Jeremy D. Cannon
Basket Case delights me to no end. Its cheesy special effects, terrible acting, and absurd plot keep my friends and I laughing almost non-stop. Read morePublished on March 24 2003 by Benjamin Tucker
Aside from featuring my favorite film line EVER (See above), Basket Case does have a few other redeeming qualities. Well, maybe not redeeming, but entertaining. Read morePublished on March 13 2003 by Daniel V. Reilly
BASKET CASE is one of those movies that you tend to remember even if you've only seen it once. The chills are there; the scares are just right; the blood and gore nearly match each... Read morePublished on Dec 12 2002 by M. Jarrett
