Description by Image Entertainment:
Basket Case - 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. Return of Swamp Thing - Everyone's favorite muck-encrusted plant-man is back in this tongue-in-cheek action-adventure, based on the award-winning DC comic series. Determined to solve the mysterious death of her mother, beautiful horticulturist Abigail Arcane ("Spin City's" Heather Locklear) visits her stepfather, Dr. Anton Arcane (Louis Jourdan), in his high-tech laboratory. Unfortunately Arcane is bent on taking her life for the creation of his immortality serum. Coming to her rescue is the former Dr. Alex Holland, now Swamp Thing, who sweeps her away to the heart of the bayou where they soon fall head over heels in love. But their romance goes awry when Arcane ruthlessly hunts down these unlikely lovers with a fiendish array of weaponry! Chock full of witty dialogue, dazzling stunt work and striking special effects, this outrageous action-comedy monster mash also features cult favorites Sarah Douglas (Superman II) and scream queen Monique Gabrielle.
