Duane recovers from his delusional breakdown to find his freakish basket-bound brother Belial will soon become a father. But not everything is joyous as the once tight knit brothers no longer seem to trust each other.
Kevin Van Hentenryck,
One morning, a young man wakes to find that a small, disgusting creature has attached itself to the base of his brain stem. The creature gives him a euphoric state of happiness but demands human victims in return.
Driven by biological excess, a man and a woman search for sexual fulfillment, unaware of each other's existence. Unfortunately, they eventually meet, and the bonding of these two very unusual human beings ends in a god awful love story.
A delicious, mysterious goo that oozes from the earth is marketed as the newest dessert sensation, but the tasty treat rots more than teeth when zombie-like snackers who only want to consume more of the strange substance at any cost begin infesting the world.
Frank Henenlotter's BASKET CASE 2 picks up right where the original BASKET CASE leaves off. After surviving the fall from their hotel room window, Duane Bradley and his misshapen, basket-dwelling brother Belial are taken to the city hospital. By now, their attempt at leading a secret life is blown, and the pair have become media darlings across the country. Meanwhile, Duane's long-lost Aunt learns of their situation and, along with her pregnant daughter Susan, helps them escape from the confines of the hospital and the eye of the press. Duane and Belial's aunt, known as Granny Ruth, takes them under her wing at her mansion, which serves as a safe haven for hideously deformed freaks of all shapes and sizes. Unfortunately, the whereabouts of this dynamic duo don't remain secret for too long, and Duane and Belial team up with Susan, Granny Ruth, and her houseful of mutants to devise a plan to do away with the exploitative reporters once and for all.

Was filmed in parts of Plainfield and Newark, New Jersey. The mansion used in the movie was linked to a couple of urban legends in Plainfield, New Jersey. See more »
After a scene in the kitchen where Duane is wearing a blue shirt he turns to leave the room and is suddenly wearing a yellowish shirt during the last shot of the scene, which was clearly shot on at a different time on a different day. Not too long after the kitchen scene he is back to wearing the blue shirt. See more »

I don't understand why everyone else thinks the sequels are a waste, I've just bought the second and third movies today on dvd. I've just finished watching the second movie for the first time, it's really good! In my opinion it really improves on the original and beats Frankenhooker in entertainment value although some of the ideas in Frankenhooker were possibly more interesting. It leads on directly from the original movie and yes it does look like a studio made film rather than the location shot original but that doesn't matter, what matters is the plot is not as simple as the original which really just told how they came into being and then they went around killing a few doctors. This has more humour it's more creepy in places the special effects are better. In fact it is all just better than the original, except of cause it doesn't have the rough edge of the ultra-low budget original but this is replaced with a much more enjoyable to watch film. I wasn't expecting much from this but what I got was a very good hour and a half's entertainment which was even sicker than the original! The 'baby' part was surprising! Ignore the other comments trust me, if you like Henenlotter's other movies and Bryan Yuzna's Society you're pretty likely to gain plenty of entertainment from this. I think the original had more emotion but this has more action, take your pick. I give it 8/10!
