'Basket Case' Getting 4K Blu-ray Release Courtesy of Arrow Video

November 28, 2017

 Today we learned that the fine folks at Arrow Video are bringing the 4K restoration of Frank Henenlotter's Basket Case to US Blu-ray!

 

Arriving February 27th, 2017!

 

Synopsis:
"Duane Bradley is a pretty ordinary guy. His formerly conjoined twin Belial, on the other hand, is a deformed, fleshy lump whom he carries around in a wicker basket. Arriving in the Big Apple and taking up a room at the seedy Hotel Broslin, the pair set about hunting down and butchering the surgeons responsible for their separation. But tensions flare up when Duane starts spending time with a pretty blonde secretary, and Belial’s homicidal tendencies reach bloody new extremes.”

 

“The feature debut of director Frank Henenlotter (Brain Damage, Frankenhooker), 1982’s Basket Case is perhaps his most revered – a riotous and blood-spattered midnight movie experience, now immortalized in a lavish new 4K restoration by the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).”
