Frank Henenlotter’s BASKET CASE (1982) / Blu-Ray (Region B)


Director: Frank Henenlotter / Starring: Kevin Van Hentenryck, Terri Susan Smith, Beverly Bonner.

Carrying a mysterious wicker basket wherever he goes, Duane Bradley checks into a flea-bag hotel in New York’s Times Square. What’s in the basket, you ask? Why, it’s Duane’s hideously misshapen Siamese twin brother, Belial! Together, they’re in town to hunt down and wreak havoc on the sleazy surgeons who separated them. With memorably gruesome scenes – such as the screaming woman with the scalpels stuck in her face – and some disturbing stop-motion animation, Frank Henenlotter’s BASKET CASE is one of the most beloved, cheerfully demented cult classics of all time.Bonus material: Introduction of Frank Henenlotter / Two Original Theatrical trailer  / Original Radio and TV spots  / Featurette: “What’s in the Basket”  / Interview with Graham Humprey (Artwork) / Gabe Bartalos’ behind-the-scenes SFX  / Bloopers & Behind the Scenes / Characteristics of the German version / Video Documentary: “Hotel Broslin – 20 years later” / TV show excerpts: “Beverly Bonner’s Laugh Track” / Radio interview with Actress Teri Susan Smith / Audio commentary with director Frank Henenlotter and producer Edgar Ieviņš / Extensive picture gallery / Animated interactive menus.Running time: approx 91 minutes.
