Episode 65: Basket Case (1982)


Brothers can be such a pain... Always needing rides everywhere, always bugging you telepathically while you're on a date, eating 10 gross hamburgers in a sitting, hiding in the toilet; you know, typical brother stuff. The HMN brothers-from-different-mothers try to keep a lid on Frank Henenlotter's 1982 cult classic Basket Case in this week's episode, even though one of their ranks has been chopped in half by a homemade saw device that has the police stumped. If you're rolling around in your brother's girlfriend's guts, you know what time it is - it's Horror Movie Night!
