Basket Case

Friday, May 25, 2018

The Late Show, presented by the American Genre Film Archive. What's in the basket? The debut gutter-trash symphony from Frank Henenlotter (BRAIN DAMAGE, FRANKENHOOKER), stealthily filmed 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. A true homemade classick. 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 incredibly grotesque monster puppet that will burn its essence on the surface of your brain until the day you die. It's also filled with real-life 42nd Street sleazers, stop-motion shocks and non-stop sicko fun. NR / 91 min.
