1982, 91 minutes

Program Notes

The debut gutter-trash symphony from Frank Henenlotter (Brain Damage, Frankenhooker), stealthily lmed in the toilet bowls of Times Square and chock-full of demented fury. Hilarious, disgusting, and over-the-top in every way possible, this movie plays out like Herschell Gordon Lewis directing Freaks on the set of Taxi Driver.

 

 

Duane and his brother Belial are ex-siamese twins who arrive in New York with a purpose — REVENGE! Against everyone! That’s enough to propel any movie, but here the deal is even sweeter because Belial is a telepathic monstrosity who lives in a wicker basket. Basket Case features an incredible grotesque monster puppet that will stay burned into your mind.
