Description by OLDIES.com:
Carrying a mysterious wicker basket around with him, Duane Bradley arrives in Manhatten and checks into a sleazy Times Square hotel. What's in the basket, you ask? Why, Duane's hideously misshapen Siamese-twin brother, Belial, of course! Duane has hit the Big Apple with his beastly bro to wreak havoc on the surgeons who seperated them. With memorably gruesome scenes and some disturbing stop-motion animation, Frank Henenlotter's Basket Case is one of the most beloved, cheerfully demented cult classics of all time, and a midnight movie hit that inspired two sequels.
Duane Bradley (Kevin Van Hentenryck) has a secret in his wicker basket, which he carries with him constantly. Inside is his mutant Siamese twin Belial, who was cut from his side as a child and left for dead. Now the two, who share a telepathic link, have travelled to New York City to wreak bloody revenge on the thoughtless surgeons who separated them. Belial is not about to let anything get in his was, least of all the budding romance between his brother Duane and a beautiful young receptionist.
