New 4K Restoration!


United States | 1982 | Frank Henenlotter

BASKET CASE film still

This horror-comedy, one of the earliest midnight movie hits, has been recently restored by none other than the Museum of Modern Art! Shot independently in NYC, it’s an often disgusting spectacle that follows once-conjoined twin brothers—one normal, one deformed—as they seek revenge on the doctors who separated them against their will. “[It’s] like Herschell Gordon Lewis directing Freaks on the set of Taxi Driver.” –American Genre Film Archive. Adults only! Cleveland revival premiere. DCP. 91 min.
