This very much reminded me of The Deadly Spawn (1983). Both are tatty horrors based on a silly premise. It is well worth watching though and this enjoyable romp through the trials and tribulations of having a separated Siamese twin that can telepathically communicate, this can be enjoyed by all insane people. This really is silly but it is entertaining. The effects are spot on. The story is spot on. The whole package is great although don't expect anything highbrow.

The Synopsis for Basket Case (1982) 1080p
Charming country bumpkin Duane Bradley takes a motel room in New York with a basket and a backpack. In a flash back-series we learn the basket contains his surgically removed Siamese twin who is not only physically deformed so badly the doctors hesitated to consider him a human, but is also the vindictive drive of their trip, with the purpose to kill off all those he blames. But in the reception of one of those doctors, Duane gets his first ever date, with the receptionist, and wants to start a positive life too - when the freak twin escapes, the scene is set for a grim finale.

Spot onReviewed byhellholehorrorVote: 9/10
After first glancing at the article of this movie in the book "Cult Movies 2" some 25 years ago, I finally watched Basket Case today having bought the VHS from a used video store about a month ago. It concerns conjoined twins Duane (Keven Van Hentenryck) and Belial (which is a mixture of a puppet and stop-motion animation) and their revenge against the doctors that tore them apart. There's also a romance between Duane and one of the doctors' receptionist, Sharon (Terri Susan Smith). Written and directed by Frank Henenlotter, Basket Case is obviously low-budget and amateurish with cheesy moments to spare especially whenever Belial attacks someone. But it can also provide some genuine scares and shocks especially when Belial encounters Sharon. So on that note, Basket Case comes highly recommended. P.S. One of the players, a Dorothy Strongin who played Josephine here, died in my current hometown of Baton Rouge, LA, on May 25, 2006.
As its title suggests, BASKET CASE is a touching tale of brotherly love. Duane Bradley (Kevin Van Hentenryck) has a brother named Belial, who is a bit... different. Owing to a tragic history, the two siblings can only depend on each other. They've been on a mission to track down some old acquaintances who have wronged them, so that Belial can show them how sorry they should be. Checking into the Hotel Broslin in NYC, all goes -relatively- well, until Duane falls in love. Will jealousy tear these two brothers apart- again? Director, Frank Henenlotter (FRANKENHOOKER, BRAIN DAMAGE) has created some of the most innovative, jaw-dropping, low-low-budget horror films ever conceived. This movie is, in my opinion, his crowning achievement. If you crave maniacal mutants, blood-spraying murder, cockeyed humor, screwball characters, and romance, then BASKET CASE will satisfy! Co-stars Terri Susan Smith as Sharon, and the wonderful Beverly Bonner as Casey... EXTRA POINTS FOR: The back story flashback, featuring the "dining room surgery" and "basement surprise" sequences! SUPER BONUS POINTS FOR: Belial, his buzz saw-like attacks, and his stop-motion, hotel room rampage!...
