Basket Case: The Trilogy

What's in the basket? Only a skid row horror classic and its two bigger budget sequels

Frank Henenlotter's gory skid row shocker about a young man and his monstrous Siamese twin doesn't seem like an obvious choice for a hi-def remaster. But we're pleasantly surprised by the fidelity of the AVC 1.33:1 1080p encode and how it helps reinforce the grain and grime of the original 16mm footage. The two bigger-budget sequels fare better in terms of AV, although the quality of the actual films dips with each instalment. A refreshingly frank 79-minute examination of the making of the trilogy is the pick of the set's copious extras.
