Basket Case 2 (1990)

Option 1Option 2

Avg Rating: 4.6 / 5. Voted: 12

No one cared thus far. Do you?

AKA:
Directed by: Frank Henenlotter
Starring: Kevin Van Hentenryck (Duane), Annie Ross (Ruth), Heather Rattray (Susan Smoeller), Kathryn Meisle (Marcie)
Country: United States
Language: English
Runtime: 01:29:30
Genres: Body Modification, Gruesome

Plot – Spoilers:
Duane and his malformed brother Belial are back.

The fall at the end of Basket Case 1 (1982) seems to have knocked more detailing into Belial’s appearance. It appears that falling from the top floor = 8 years of progress in sfx.

The brothers are adopted by Granny Ruth who has a cult of freaks hidden away in her attic, and among the myriad beings there, Belial finds love. This gives us a memorable creature-porn scene where Belial and his lady love explore and discover each others sex organs and hot spots among all the mounds and protrusions.

Meanwhile, Duane falls in love with Ruth’s granddaughter and wants to leave with her, but a snoopy reporter lady is being a nuisance.

LOLZ! Love me some campy 80s horror flicks! Looks like Belial gained some weight… and has been honing his anti-gravity skills too. What a talented little monster! And the captioning… it’s from the first Basket Case. I happened to catch it right as the brother was offering up his entire inventory. Quaaludes… Anybody here remember those things? They were waaaay too much fun so they stopped making them in the early 80s…. anyway, I digress. I really enjoyed this one! Thanks, admin…. And I’d especially like to thank you for the ability to edit my posts!!! How effin’ cool is… Read more »

A love story. .
. With a great soundtrack and some grossly OTT acting. Classic.
