What’s in the basket? A question Duane Bradley is asked a lot when he arrives in New York and checks into the sleazy Hotel Broslin. Who would guess it contains his grotesquely deformed brother Belial?! Separated at birth, the Siamese twins have come looking for revenge on the doctor that left Belial for dead and now the basket-dweller is ready to wreak blood-soaked carnage. Where the original classic ends the sequel picks up and things start to get really warped when the brothers meet their long lost aunt ‘Granny Ruth’ and her whole houseful of freaks.
One of the essential repeat rentals for any self-respecting horror fan in the early 80’s, Frank Henenlotter’s cult classic Basket Case and the gloriously psychotic sequels it spawned are collected together here in one of the most twisted and enjoyable horror trilogies ever made.
