Man, we’ve all been there: Fed up with life, the world just constantly beating us down, and our former conjoined twin pushing us to act unruly and trash a hotel room. Yeah, it pretty much happens every day – especially with cheesy stop motion effects courtesy of the 80’s.
But yes, I’m talking about the movie Basket Case. A true ‘b-movie’ classic, not just in the form of 80’s horror – but cinema in general. And one of the more enjoyably ridiculous scenes is when our favorite little wicker basket dweller Belial goes on a rampage and tears apart the hotel room that he and his brother Duane are staying in. So please, stop what you’re doing and click the link below and enjoy. Belial would have wanted it that way.
With everything going on in the country right now (or let alone the world), we could use a little positivity. A little something to put a smile on our faces. A little something to make us all feel better about ourselves. So roll that ridiculous ‘Personality’ clip from Frank Henenlotter’s Basket Case 3: The Progeny!
There. Now don’t you feel better about yourself and everything around you?
As far as Siamese twin horror movies go, Basket Case is on the top of the list. It’s a short list that pretty much only contains Basket Case, but that’s nothing to sneeze at and is an accomplishment nonetheless.
So on this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday, it only feels right to give some shine to Belial, our favorite little monstrosity that lives in a wicker basket that his brother Duane carries around in the 1982 horror/comedy Basket Case. Only problem is that from time to time, Belial likes to hop out of his basket and play. His version of playing is carving you up with his fingernails and then tearing your insides out to round out the fun. He’s quite a character! Case in point – the clip below:
