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.
