Storyline

The saga of Times Square Freak Twins Duane and Belial Bradley takes its most bizarre twist yet. It all starts innocently enough when the Bradley boys join kindly doctor Granny Ruth and her family of unique individuals for a road trip through the deep South. The occasion - Belail's about to become a proud monster father, and no basket is big enough to hold this ungodly brood! But when a pair of warped sheriffs deputies kidnap Belial's babies, Granny Ruth and the family strike back. Belial single-handedly decimates the local police station with crazed, Terminator-like fury - and that's just the beginning. Threatened with the loss of the newest additions to their family, Granny Ruth and the others concoct a delicious revenge against their enemies, climaxing in Belial's futuristic one-on-one with the town Sheriff.

Campy entertaining third and last entry
25 June 2002 | by michaeldaly99See all my reviews

The third entry in this bizzare series sees the usual cast return, namely Annie Ross as Granny Ruth and Kevin VanHentenryck as Duane Bradley. This third and last installment in the series has more gore than BC2, is campier and more entertaining than BC2, has some memorable characters and lovable cops, and you get to see 12 of Belial's kids, or his "progeny"....It's also got an ending to remember. Highly recommended, this flick rests easy in my collection. 9/10

Rated 18s for strong horror violence and gore, language, sensuality and nudity
