Basket Case 3 (1992)

basket-case-3-2

I can definitely appreciate Frank Henenlotter’s commitment to celebrating the freakazoids in life but neither of his Basket Case sequels manage to capture the beautiful simplicity of his original. That being said, I like that Henenlotter went in a completely different direction with Part 2 and 3 and tried to blow up the Dwayne and Belial mythology to ridiculous proportions. There’s lots of “fuck it, why not?” fun to be had here including a nutty musical number and a wacky massacre in a police station. Sadly the film never amounts to a cohesive whole and feels more like a compilation of gross-out gags. Gotta love this crazy gang though and if Henenlotter ever comes out of retirement with a Basket Case 4 I’ll be there.
