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.

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!

2014, Oscilloscope Laboratories, 97 min, USA, Dir: Joel Potrykus

From the director of APE and “Coyote” comes this hellish and hilarious riff on the struggles of the American working class. Marty (Joshua Burge) is a caustic, small-time con artist drifting from one scam to the next. When his latest ruse goes awry, mounting paranoia forces him from his lousy small-town temp job to the desolate streets of Detroit with nothing more than a pocket full of bogus checks, a dangerously altered Nintendo Power Glove … and a very bad temper.
