"An imaginative, twisted gem about the ultimate split personality."
— Michael Weldon, THE PSCYHOTRONIC ENCYCLOPEDIA OF FILM
What's in the basket? You'll love finding out. BASKET CASE is 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. Duane and his brother Belial are ex-siamese twins who arrive in New York with a purpose—revenge against everyone! The only catch is that 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 from now until forever. It's also filled with real-life NYC sleazers, stop-motion shocks, and non-stop sicko fun, playing out like Herschell Gordon Lewis directing FREAKS on the set of TAXI DRIVER. A true DIY classick, BASKET CASE has been newly restored in 4K by MoMA and Arrow Films.
