Basket Case 2 in October
Synapse Films have announced the Region 1 DVD release of Basket Case 2 on 30th October 2007 priced at $19.95 SRP. Duane Bradley (Kevin Van Hentenryck, reprising his role from the first film) and his surgically-separated twin brother Belial return in Basket Case 2, the frightfully gory follow-up to Frank Henenlotter’s original monster movie classic. After surviving a fall from a hospital window, the two brothers become a target of the media. Duane’s aunt, Granny Ruth (played by world-renowned jazz singer Annie Ross), whisks the duo away to a secluded mansion where other freaks-in-hiding live out their days away from public scrutiny. But when a snooping tabloid reporter finds the location of the mutants, Duane his new family must stand together to keep their freedom a secret…and in all the chaos, Belial might actually find true love!
