To try to make the film appeal to a comedy crowd, the original distributor cut all the gore scenes out of the film. They were eventually put back in and re-released in theaters with the subtitle "The Full Uncut Version!". See more »

A young man carries his deformed, mutant, Siamese twin brother around in a wicker basket on the streets of New York. The loud, yellow, stumpy creature is named Belial and, according to his brother, looks like "a squashed octopus". In the past, they've remained completely sheltered from the world by their compassionate but overprotective aunt. Now, after her recent death, the two decide to hit the big city for the first time and exact their revenge on the doctors that separated them during childhood. What's not to love about this movie? The story and script are thoughtful, scary, and darkly humorous. The character development is flawless: you actually begin to feel sympathy for the grotesque, rubbery entity and his bemused companion. The special effects and gore sequences are extremely well-done, considering the film's microbudget. Also, while the acting is indeed notably bad, that just adds to the camp value of the film.
