Basket Case 2 is a 1990 horror movie directed by Frank Henenlotter and starring Kevin Van Hentenryck, Judy Grafe, and Annie Ross. The film picks up where the first Basket Case movie left off, with Duane Bradley and his misshapen, murderous twin brother, Belial, still on the run from the law. After a failed attempt to hide out in a hotel room, Duane and Belial flee to a secluded mansion in the countryside, where they are taken in by a kind woman named Granny Ruth and her collection of misfit "brothers and sisters." Despite Belial's murderous tendencies, Granny Ruth insists on treating him and Duane as family, and soon the brothers find themselves settling in to their new home.

As the days pass, Duane begins to fall for one of Granny Ruth's daughters, a beautiful woman named Susan. Meanwhile, Belial becomes increasingly restless and paranoid, convinced that he and Duane are in danger. But when a group of scientists discover Granny Ruth's secret sanctuary and threaten to expose it to the world, Belial's worst fears are realized.

Basket Case 2 is a classic horror film that combines elements of comedy, drama, and gore to create a truly unique experience. The movie is known for its over-the-top special effects, which include some of the most grotesque and bizarre creatures ever put to film. But despite the film's shock value, it also has a surprisingly touching story at its core, exploring themes of family, acceptance, and belonging.

One of the highlights of the film is the performance of Kevin Van Hentenryck, who plays both Duane and Belial with a nuanced complexity that makes the viewer truly care for even the most monstrous character. Judy Grafe is another standout as Granny Ruth, bringing a warm maternal energy to her role despite the film's dark subject matter.

Overall, Basket Case 2 is a must-see for horror fans, offering a unique and unforgettable cinematic experience that is both thrilling and emotionally resonant.

Basket Case 2 is a 1990 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 30 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.4.
