BASKET_CASEHe ain’t heavy, he’s my brother probably doesn’t apply when your bro is a 40kg legless psychopath who lives in a wicker basket. Basket Case is a cult classic, one of those movies filmed in a fledgling director’s spare time that shows such wit and originality that it launches a career.

There are sequels- our personal favourite of the series, Basket Case 2, a Freaks-esque homage with great physical comedy, excellent plot and pacing, wonderful sets and a dark sense of humour. Basket Case 3 which is less nuanced than it’s predecessors and with it’s comedy mostly attempts to riff on topical themes, is one for the fans only.
