Basket Case is a truly original movie.It is not your standard horror flick.That is why I like it even more; originality is always a plus.The plot is really interesting; Frank Henenlotter did a good job.The dialogue is standard horror dialogue; which you expect.The acting is absolutely horrendous.I didn't really get into the movie until it was the first 20 or so minutes in.The killer is different and sometimes fun to laugh at.The gore is really good in this film.This film is like a horror/comedy movie.If your a horror fan you will get a kick out of this one.I can't really come to give it higher than a six; though.If your a horror fan then you should check it out; if not just wait till it comes on T.V.
In the quiet town of Glens Falls, a very nervous Dr. Lifflander is suddenly attacked by....well... something.Something very small, misshapen, and very mad.Something with a swollen claw-like hand which rips the good doctor's face off.Basket Case is about a young man who was born with a Siamese twin attached to his side.At an early age, the monstrous twin was surgically removed, but lived to deeply resent his cut-off day.His normal looking brother goes to New York, carrying a large basket is the hideous twin.Neither brother can rest until they avenge their surgical separation by killing the doctors responsible.
"Quirky horror on no budget."

"Basket Case" is yet another early '80's schlock classic that serious horror film fans must watch. I fondly remember lounging on the couch at 3:00 AM during summer vacation, washing down a pepperoni pizza with a six-pack of pop while viewing this dreck. Ahhh, those were the days! As I got older and presumably began taking part in the "adult" world, my memories of these classic yuckfests faded. Fortunately, DVD arrived on the scene a few years ago and resurrected many of these old, pleasant memories. If you're not familiar with the wondrous magic of "Basket Case," think "C.H.U.D.," but cheaper. If you don't know what "C.H.U.D." is, I probably can't help you but I'll try. Think New York City in its grimiest incarnation, a city swarming with women of the night, grindhouse theaters, and slum tenements aplenty. It is against this backdrop that "Basket Case" unfolds. The movie is a warm, heartfelt film about twins who decide to go to the big city so they can relive fond memories of the past with the surgeons who separated them. I'm pretty sure I missed the Academy Awards that year, so I can't remember if this film won the best picture Oscar, but it probably should have. Who doesn't like a film about twins?
Directed by low budget hero Frank Henenlotter, "Basket Case" relates the complicated tale of Duane Bradley (Kevin Van Hentenryck). When we first meet up with Duane, he's acquiring lodgings at one of New York City's finer hotels-alright, it's really some rat hole where the dregs of humanity hang out when they aren't collecting unemployment or waiting for the liquor store to open. Duane wants a room so he can be closer to the three doctors who performed a special operation on him some years before.

For anyone curious, Basket is about the Bradley brothers Duane
(Kevin Van Hentenryck) and his misshapen blob twin Belial who
he carries around in a large wicker basket.

Both were born Siamese twins and were separated when they were fairly young, despite their protests. Their angry father, blaming Belial for their mother's death during their birth, has Belial thrown out in the garbage just after the separation. After their father is mysteriously killed in the Bradley's large basement, we jump to several years later.

Dr. Julius Lifflander (Bill Freeman) is on his way to work one night when his power goes out in his house and he's viciously attacked in the dark by something he can't see. The Bradley twins then arrive in New York at night and check into the Hotel Broslin. They've come to hunt down and kill the last 2 remaining doctors that were involved in their separation.

Along the way, they meet a group of strange locals that hang out at the run down hotel. There's Casey (Beverly Boner), a party girl who takes an immediate liking to Duane, Josephine who tells the guests weird stories, the hotel manager who's not at all curious about the large wicker basket Duane carries with him and Donovan, a drunk and nosy vagrant who likes to peep through the guest's keyholes.

Whilst scoping out the office of their next target, Dr. Harold Needeleman (Lloyd Pace) Duane meets the lovely receptionist Sharon (Terri Susan Smith) Duane immediately falls for her and Sharon also take a liking to him, much to the disapproval of the jealous Belial. Things get very bad for Duane and Belial here as Belial also falls for Sharon.
