5.0 out of 5 stars Three slices of Henenlotter genius 24 Oct 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Basketcase, the tale of a young man and his siamese twin (whom he keeps in a basket) seeking revenge for their separation as children, is the quintessential low budget New York horror flick. Gloriously stilted performances and seedy settings combine with bargain basement gore that belies the film's paltry $33,000 budget. The image is impressive, just don't expect miracles, Basketcase was filmed on the cheap and it shows, but don't let that put you off.

Parts 2 & 3 on the other hand have been transformed by the new transfers. Previously only available in a bare-bones, full screen DVD double set, here they are presented in their correct aspect ratios and look bright and sparklingly clean. They are also accompanied by revealing interviews with Henenlotter that hint there may yet be a fourth epsiode.

Second Sight have delivered another great set for fans of this genre. BUY IT!

This is my very First SteelBook of soon to be many. as well as my very first time ordering from the U.k. I'm am so happily pleased with this item. As a matter of fact I'm watching The Original as I type this. Contrary to what a lot of others, here in the states, have complained about this not being the uncut version. This Trilogy is indeed the uncut original version. I am so Proud to have this Uncut Trilogy in my Collection. Any true B-Horror Collector would be more than satisfied with this cult classic. I know I am. I grew up with Movies like these as well as Brain Damage, Maniac Cop, Bloody Birthday, Sleepaway Camp and many more.

5.0 out of 5 stars "..QUALITY SET.." 10 Oct 2013
Format:DVD
This is a brilliant set of classic movies, all 3 basket case movies in one beautiful looking steel book all region free too! The picture quality is great especially on the original 1981 version which is uncut too and is practically the same as the import DVD version and has great features too, parts 2 and 3 have no features, this is a nasty and gory set of movies especially the original, all are creepy and have amazing creature make-up effects, a must have for your retro horror collection, well worth the money!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars excitement 1 May 2013
By Victor Best VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
back in the days of vhs these were illegal under the counter classics
along with other offenders like cannibal holocaust and driller killer
bored with most cheap porn films me and a few friends got our thrills with bloody horror
now these are all easily available so the initial excitement has gone
still I want to own them all on Blu-ray now
my partner hates them, I can relive my youth!

4.0 out of 5 stars "What's in the Basket?" 15 Mar 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Well, here it is - the ultimate "Basket Case" collectible. All three films on region free Blu-ray discs looking and sounding the best they ever have, plus a comprehensive documentary (almost 80 mins), a suite of extras collected from previous DVD releases of the first film (commentary, outtakes, trailers, photos), a look at UK horror movie posters and an Easter egg featuring an FX workshop tour - all wrapped up in metal box with great new cover art. Wow-factor: 11 out of 10. The first movie is a genuine low-budget horror classic, and the glossier sequels make for cheerfully demented viewing. Plus, Belial fans should note that a potential "Basket 4" is hinted at in the documentary, so buy this now and stay tuned for more mayhem.

My favourite one out of all of them has to be the first, but I loved them all in the own special way. Would recommend anyone to buy this boxset if you are a horror geek like myself.

Brilliant trilogy that I bought as a gift for a friend who loves these films as much as me. Highly recommended for the lovers of cheesy 80's horrors. Well worth the price!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay, but cut to pieces which ruins the purpose of Splatter films
Don't get me wrong, I love all three films (the first one is superior to the other two by far though) and I love Frank Henenlotter's other films like Brain Damage. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Crazy
A great trilogy about a severe case of split personality. Director Frank Henenlotter is crazy, but he's my kind of crazy. And he's got... personality.
