Exclusive: Frank Henenlotter Talks Basket Case

25 September 2011 11:19 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Frank Henenloter discusses his horror cult classic Basket Case which arrives on Blu-ray September 27

Back in the early 1980s, filmmaker Frank Henenlotter wanted to make a horror film which he believed no one would really see, or want to see. Nearly three decades later, that movie Basket Case is hitting the shelves for the first time on Blu-ray starting September 27. This disturbing movie centers on a man (Kevin Van Hentenryck) who carries around a strange wicker basket which contains his mangled and mutated brother Belial. The brothers roam the streets of New York City, seeking vengeance against the doctors who separated the Siamese twins. I recently had the chance to speak with Frank Henenlotter over the phone about Basket Case, and here's what he had to say.

Can you talk a bit about where this crazy concept sprung from?
