Episode 106: Basket Case (1990)


It's Matt's pick this week, and he has a long history of making the guys watch and discuss freak movies, so he went with one of his favorites, the 1990 Frank Henenlotter classic (?) Basket Case 2! We're all attached at the hip with our rollercoaster of emotions for this film, and do our best to sew ourselves together long enough to break down the intricate social commentary of this piece of cinema, as well as shower compliments on its SFX team for all the delightfully weird busts they made here. If you've ever wondered how freaks have a picnic, well you're in luck, because it's shown for about 5 minutes in this week's episode of Horror Movie Night.
