My Siamese brother is small, ugly and naughty. He lived in a basket... Today, he just came out!
Freshly landed in New York, the young Duane Bradley settles in a seedy hotel in Manhattan. He carries with him a strange wicker basket. Inside is his brother Belial, deformed since birth. These former Siamese twins were forcibly separated when they were twelve years old. Since then, Belial has had only one thing in mind: to take revenge on the doctors who performed the operation...
Shot on a budget of just a few tens of thousands of dollars, Basket Case (Brother) is a tasty mix of comedy with gore sauce and homemade horror film, signed Frank Henenlotter ( Frankenhooker ). Those nostalgic for the New York trash of the 1980s will be delighted by this sordid and unhealthy painting of the Big Apple which made the heyday of American underground cinema.
BASKET CASE (BLOOD BROTHER) (1982 – Colors – 91 mins) unreleased on Blu-ray
