Great news for fans of this classic Frank Henenlotter flick from 1982. As you can already tell by the headline and the attached picture Basket Case is set to hit Blu-ray, and it will be coming from Image Entertainment and Something Weird on September 27th. Check out down below for a list of the extras to be included.
“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, who seems to wield some sort of odd control over his more normal looking brother. Together, they’re in town to hunt down and wreak havoc on the sick surgeons who separated them, but this isn’t your normal revenge flick.
With memorably gruesome scenes and some seriously disturbing stop-motion animation, Basket Case is one of the most beloved, cheerfully demented cult classics of all time. Many discovered it in the days of VHS, but now Basket Case is reborn and remastered on Blu-ray™ for a new generation of twisted fans to enjoy. Open the basket if you dare!
