Carrying a mysterious wicker basket wherever he goes, Duane Bradley checks into a flea-bag hotel in New York â€™s Times Square . Whatâ€™s in the basket, you ask? Why, itâ€™s Duaneâ€™s hideously misshapen Siamese twin brother, Belial, who seems to wield some sort of odd control over his more normal looking brother. Together, theyâ€™re in town to hunt down and wreak havoc on the sick surgeons who separated them, but this isnâ€™t your normal revenge flick.
With memorably gruesome scenes and some seriously disturbing stop-motion animation, Basket Case is one of the most beloved, cheerfully demented cult classics of all time. Many discovered it in the days of VHS, but now Basket Case is reborn and remastered on Blu-rayâ„˘ for a new generation of twisted fans to enjoy. Open the basket if you dare!
