BASKET CASE (1982) feels like H.G. Lewis directing FREAKS on the set of TAXI DRIVER. This movie is filled with real-life 42nd Street sleazers, non-stop sicko fun, and grotesque puppetry that will burn its essence onto the surface of your brain until the day you die.
A strange young man (Kevin Van Hentenryck) arrives in the city with a basket under his arm, which turns out to hold his horribly deformed twin brother. The pair proceed to enact a bloody revenge upon the doctors who separated them at birth in this alternately humorous and terrifying cult item directed by Frank Henenlotter.
