Basket Case


Basket Case is a low-budget film about questionable brotherly love. Duane and his brother Belial were born Siamese twins so they were extra close as brothers. The brother’s father was quite an insensitive man and wanted Belial cut off then thrown away like a cancer infected wart. Belial was probably not loved by his father because he looks like a large tumor with two arms and a few hideous facial features. Duane, on the other hand, is atomically correct but lacks in the mental health department.


After killing a doctor that helped separate them, Duane carries Belial to degenerate New York City in a basket. The basket in the film is probably the only thing that doesn’t look filthy so Belial keeps a fairly clean home. For some irrational reason, a young blonde hits on Duane very assertively and he can’t help but to give in. Belial, on the other hand loses his cool and wrecks their apartment. The sounds that come from Belial sound similar to that of a homeless freestyle rapper raping a freshly groomed kitten on the lower eastside. The folly artist from Basket Case sure does deserve acknowledgment.

A middle aged mulatto woman that looks like a prostitute (and probably is) also takes an interest in Duane. The two drink a few beers together and talk about family matters. Later, Belial tries to molest the woman and she goes into hysterics. I can only assume that those types of shrieks and screams are commonplace in degenerate cities where the animals roam wild. A killer tumor like Belial certainly fits in.


Basket Case features enough ridiculous gore and killing to keep perverted horror fans happy. Belial even kills and rapes Duane’s blonde girlfriend. Although supposed to be dead, you can see the blonde actress clearly breathing in the film. Basket Case director Frank Henenlotter deserves to be commended for his keen eye. But I doubt this director has flaming bloody eyes as Belial when he’s looking to rape a real live girl. In the end, jealously ruins the Siamese twin brothers extra close relationship. Thankfully, a couple of cheap prostitutes get to enjoy a cool sight, courtesy of the brothers last gripping moments on earth.


Most trash films are just trash. That also includes all the trash films that are often noted as “good” trash. Basket Case is one of the few pieces of “good” trash. Although I don't know the directors true intentions, Basket Case is a wacked out film that will touch a nerve at some point for everyone. Whether it be Belial engaging in Negro panty sniffing or nude footage of Duane running down the street, this film delivers.

I believe Franky Spanky is Jewish, so at the very least he is more-fag-than-a-homo-on-the-tampex-butt-rag.

Is "Charlie the Charming Chap" actually "Ty E" or "mAQ" pretending to be "Charlie the Charming Chap" ?.

Rex Reed is gayer than a Negroid playing ultimate Frisbee in Richard "sperm guzzling Israelite" Simmon's backyard.

Have you noticed when Belial snarls and growls he looks like the shark from Jaws.
