Bluray Tuesday: Featuring Baskin, Basket Case 2 and Basket Case 3

August 09, 2016

It's Tuesday once more which means more blurays to add to our collections. Today is a much smaller release week, but also has some nice additions. Synapse Films releases the Basket Case sequels Basket Case 2 and Basket Case 3 remastered, both with cool reverse cover arts as well. Scream Factory releases a new film Baskin that has an interesting premise and I look forward to checking out sometime soon. There are a couple TV Shows released as well; Supergirl the complete first season and the greatly reviewed scifi mystery 11.23.63. I missed out on this miniseries when it first aired so I am looking to pick this up today. So again light week this time.  What will you be buying, renting or skipping this week? Let us know in the comments. Also don't forget to follow our Instagram page here and our Facebook page here. We love talking about all things horror. Until next week!

Basket Case 2 (1990): Amazon - $12.99

Duane Bradley and his surgically-separated twin brother Belial return in this frightfully gory follow-up to Frank Henenlotter's original monster movie classic, BASKET CASE. After surviving a fall from a hospital window, the two brothers become media targets. Duane's aunt, Granny Ruth (played by world-famous 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. When a snooping tabloid reporter finds the location of the mutants, Duane and his new family must stand together to keep their freedom a secret. And, in all the chaos, Belial might actually find true love!

He's back. He's bad. And, he's a dad! Belial, everyone's favorite beast-in-a-basket, is back in this sensational third film in the wildly macabre BASKET CASE horror series. Synopsis: After being separated again from his conjoined twin brother Duane (Kevin Van Hentenryck), Belial finds out he's going to be a deformed daddy! Mrs. Belial ("Eve", played by Denise Coop) delivers a litter of bouncing baby monsters, but the blessed event turns into a nightmarish ordeal when the police kidnap the little critters. They should know it's not safe to anger Belial! Attacking the cops in a climactic, gory rampage, everyone's favorite mutant mauler stops at nothing to get his newborns back!

Basket Case 3: The Progeny (Blu-ray) 

Baskin: Amazon - $22.99

A five-man unit of cops on night patrol get more than they bargain for when they arrive at a creepy backwater town in the middle of nowhere after a call comes over the radio for backup. Entering a derelict building, the seasoned tough guys and their rookie junior, who's still haunted by a traumatic childhood dream, do the one thing you should never do in this kind of movie: they split up. They soon realize they've stumbled into a monstrous charnel house and descend into an ever-more nightmarish netherworld where grotesque, mind-wrenching horrors await them at every turn. But things aren't what they seem in this truly disturbing, outrageously gory, and increasingly surreal film whose unpredictable narrative slippages pull the carpet from under your feet and keep you guessing right up to the final moment. A wildly original film that reconfirms Turkey as the breakout national cinema of the moment.

Rome is shattered by a series of gruesome murders that paint the Eternal City deep red.

They stumble upon the eccentric Professor Vassago - a master of myths and mysteries - who is linked to Senator Vinci - a corrupt politician mutually driven by power and perversions. The suspicion grows that these atrocious crimes are connected with the return of one of the most heinous serial killers of our time, Karl the Butcher!
