Basket Case

1074 Bank St, Ottawa, ON K1S 3X3, Canada


40th Anniversary!

A young man carrying a big basket that contains his extremely deformed, formerly conjoined twin brother seeks vengeance on the doctors who separated them against their will. From New York City Horror Film Festival: Lifetime Achievement Award winning writer/director Frank Henenlotter!

5 Stars! “a vital, beautiful, and bracingly irreverent presentation of Frank Henenlotter’s cult-film classic.” (Slant)

5 Stars! “this monster mash is vile fun.” (eFilmCritic)

“It shouldn’t work at all, but amazingly it does and exceptionally well too.” (Starburst)

“a you-gotta-see-it grindhouse phenomenon…an all-time exploitation classic” (Aisle Seat)

“Looking every bit as ragged as its urban locale, Henenlotter’s midnight movie classic is nonetheless a thing of modest B-movie beauty” (Lessons of Darkness)

*Please take note that doors open 30 minutes before showtimes. We encourage people to arrive early. We have a small box office, a small candy bar, and a single-screen cinema, meaning that when most of an audience shows up a few minutes before showtime, it causes a bottleneck. If possible, we appreciate you arriving a little bit early to pick out your seat and get your popcorn. Thanks for your help!
