Charming country bumpkin Duane Bradley takes a motel room in New York with a basket and a backpack. In a flashback sequence we learn the basket contains his surgically removed Siamese twin - who is not only so physically deformed the doctors hesitated to consider him a human, but is also the vindictive driver behind their trip, with the purpose of killing off all those he blames. But in one of those doctors' offices, Duane gets his first-ever date, with the receptionist, and wants to start a positive life. When the freak twin escapes, the scene is set for a grim finale.Written by
At one point Kevin van Hentenryck (Duane) refers to "Duane" during a scene with Casey at the bar. Though often thought to be a continuity error, van Hentenryck said in later interviews he did this intentionally as he was playing "Belial" during that sequence. See more »

I went into Basket Case thinking "Oh God, this is going to be excruciating." The first five minutes totally shattered my expectations.
This movie wasn't boring and horrible- it was hilarious, gory and great. I laughed hysterically at the bad acting, Crayola paint blood, sleazy characters (and scenes), and horrendous dialogue. "Whatcha got in the basket? Easter Eggs?" This is one of the Best Bad films I've seen (up there with Troll I and II, Chupacabra Terror, and Chopping Mall). I particularly enjoyed the Disgusting Blob Brother's sexual frustration and the black wo-MAN (I couldn't tell until she practically took off all her clothes and even then). All the Roach Hotel's patrons were hilarious, especially the crazy woman who just shows up and tells random stories and then disappears quickly.
Basket Case is great for Bad Movie Connoisseurs and gore lovers. Fantastic... I want to watch again!
