BASKET CASE
1982, 91 min, USA, Dir: Frank Henenlotter

If you’d been separated from a horribly deformed, bloodthirsty Siamese twin, wouldn’t you carry him around in a basket like Keven Van Hentenryck does? A campy cult classic!


35 mm!

BRAIN DAMAGE
1988, Palisades Entertainment Group, 84 min, USA, Dir: Frank Henenlotter

BASKET CASE writer-director Frank Henenlotter returns with this cult horror-comedy. Brian (Rick Hearst) becomes addicted to a parasite’s hallucinogenic secretions, and keeps the creature happy with a steady supply of human brains.

FRANKENHOOKER
1990, 85 min, Dir: Frank Henenlotter

From the director of BASKET CASE, comes a FRANKENSTEIN adaptation for the 42nd Street grindhouse set. Brilliant scientist Jeffrey is distraught after his fiancée Elizabeth is killed by a freak lawnmower accident. With only her severed head, Jeffrey decides he must rebuild the love of his life, but he needs body parts. In order to collect the parts, Jeffrey gives unsuspecting prostitutes crack cocaine that causes them to explode. With the pick of streetwalker body parts, Jeffrey rebuilds and re-animates Elizabeth. But instead of bringing back his fiancée, Jeffrey has created a super human undead hooker looking to turn tricks.
