Duane Bradley and his surgically-separated twin brother Belial return in this frightfully gory follow-up to Frank Henenlotter's original monster movie classic, BASKET CASE. After surviving a fall from a hospital window, the two brothers become media targets. Duane's aunt, Granny Ruth (played by world-famous Jazz singer Annie Ross), whisks the duo away to a secluded mansion, where other freaks-in-hiding live out their days away from public scrutiny. When a snooping tabloid reporter finds the location of the mutants, Duane and his new family must stand together to keep their freedom a secret. And, in all the chaos, Belial might actually find true love!
Plot Synopsis for "Basket Case 3: The Progeny":
He's back. He's bad. And, he's a dad! Belial, everyone's favorite beast-in-a-basket, is back in this sensational third film in the wildly macabre BASKET CASE horror series.
After being separated again from his conjoined twin brother Duane (Kevin Van Hentenryck), Belial finds out he's going to be a deformed daddy! Mrs. Belial (Eve, played by Denise Coop) delivers a litter of bouncing baby monsters, but the blessed event turns into a nightmarish ordeal when the police kidnap the little critters. They should know it's not safe to anger Belial! Attacking the cops in a climactic, gory rampage, everyone's favorite mutant mauler stops at nothing to get his newborns back!
