So, after inevitably surviving a dangerous plummet from the Hotel Broslin sign, Duane and Belial end up in a hospital, where the recuperation takes effect almost immediately for Belial, who's really pissed off and wants to get back at more of the people he doesn't like. So he and Duane, who looks badly bruised and just beat altogether, plan an escape, and they kill off a cop and manage to make their way out of the hospital. There's a snooping reporter, though, and she wants to expose them so they'll get justice for the murders. Granny Ruth and Susan, her daughter, decide to help the brothers recuperate and take refuge in her sanctuary of "unique individuals" who all have some deformities. We have a "pinhead" Frankenstein; we get a guy who has humongous teeth; we get a Belial-like girl who Belial falls in love with; and we get a guy with dozens of noses on his face...plus the other oddities you have to see to believe. When a cop and a reporter decide to team up, along with a sniveling little photographer, things get really out of hand.Read more ›
Picking up years after the first movie, Duane and Belial find a place in the world at a home run by a kindly woman for 'unique individuals' (meaning Belial-type mutants, though Duane is readily accepted into the fold as well) and unique is certainly one way to describe them. The greatly improved special effects are necesary to bring to life this weird and wonderful assortment of characters, and the acceptance into this haven quells Belial's murderous bloodrage. Both he and Duane even find love in their new home. But when their sanctuary is threatened by outside forces, it's an uprising the likes of which film has never seen before.Read more ›
Part Lewis, part Argento, part Cronenberg, and part Jackson.
It's a wonder that directors like Peter Jackson, & Sam Raimi, who produced similar movies, became HUGE!,
while Frank Henenlotter who produced 5, count 'em 5, excellent bizarro horror comedies, faded into cinematic obscurity.
The man is untapped genius!!!
Someone needs to tell Hollywood to get it together!!
Everyone knows how much the other 2 made them.
That being said....
This film is without a doubt, Frank Henenlotters crowning achievement.
A better example of his work... does not exist.
The screen explodes with more grisly monstrosities than you're gonna see anywhere else! ANYWHERE ELSE!!!
And they all look freakishly amazing!
And amazingly freakish!!
A Chernobyl sideshow!!
Each one is more unbelievable than the last!
If you could believe the last one!!
If I were to see this movie as a child, I would have been scared out of my skin tone.
I would have been a blubbering, floor-clutching, puddle of a mess.
If Zelda from "Pet Semetary" kept my eyes nailed open all night;
this movie would've kept me up screaming and hugging my knees.
There are so many horror-defining visulas at the end of this movie,
you're gonna wonder if you're having a psychotic meltdown or a horrific epiphany.
If "Freaked" had a big, ugly brother, it would be Basket Case 2.
The acting is awful on almost everyones part.
Everyone except Annie Ross, who turns the "creepy factor" all the way up through the roof.
But everything else if the stuff hilarious nightmares are made of.
This is the hidden horror gem you've been mining for.
Behold it in all it's horror-comedy glory.
MORAL OF THE STORY:
Do you know where your hideously deformed, homicidal, siamese twin brother is??
