"What's in the basket?"
Basket Case--a grotesque classic from director Frank Henenlotter.It's the
fairy tale story of two brothers separated at age twelve, literally.You
see, Duane and Belial Bradley are as close as two brothers can get, they're
siamese twins.But they're not quite identical.Belial is an angry, little
mutant while Duane is a regular looking kid (except for the mutant
protruding from his side).Their father hires a team of doctors to perform
an operation to separate the brothers, hoping that Belial will die in the
process.But the surgery only makes matters worse, now Belial is free to
wreak havoc.Years later, the Bradley brothers travel to New York to find
the doctors responsible...and rip their faces off.Basket Case scores with
originality.The film has a dirty, grainy quality that is highly
reminiscent of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.In fact, everything about this
movie is dirty, from the Hotel Broslin to the streets of New York at night.
It proves that you can do alot with a little budget; you can tear people's
faces off, create a gruesome stopmotion freak, and spawn two sequels.There
are some things I didn't like though.The acting for example.I can
honestly say that no real actors were used in filming (except the cop, he
seemed believable).Most of the people in the film are just plain CRAZY.
Also, Duane running nude through the city streets was totally unnecessary.
I still enjoy the film's savageness and think it's a great addition to the
horror genre.If you don't like Basket Case, don't give up on old Frank.
