Cult Classic “BASKET CASE” Screening Friday 17th January at Brighton’s Duke of York’s Cinema!
The Duke’s After Dark and Cigarette Burns Cinema have teamed up again for the best in late-night cult cinema!
The boisterous original that launched a wonderfully tasteless trilogy, BASKET CASE tells the tale of apparently amiable country bumpkin Duane Bradley (Van Hentenryck), who arrives at a seedy Manhattan hotel carrying an ominously large wicker basket into which he regularly inserts morsels of fast food.
Although he’s initially bemused by the hotel’s stable of lowlifes, it’s soon clear that Duane has a murky mission of his own – namely to exact revenge on the corrupt surgeons who separated him, not very efficiently, from his malformed conjoined twin brother, who of course provides the film with its title.
Unfortunately complications creep in when Duane falls for the doctors’ pulchritudinous receptionist (Smith), but ultimately this doesn’t spoil the splatter-fest which writer-director Henenlotter and his cast execute with a camp glee worthy of John Waters or Herschell Gordon Lewis.
One of the true gems of the grindhouse cinemas of NYC’s 42nd Street, BASKET CASE serves up everything a late-night audience could desire. Amusingly bizarre and twisted, and brought to you in the grottiest format possible – a very rare 35mm print.
