We've teamed up with Beyond Fest, Cinematic Void and Friday Night Frights to bring a Frank Henenlotter Horror Triple Feature to the Egyptian Theatre in LA on February 23 with the one and only Frank Henenlotter in attendance!
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!
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.
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.
