Basket Case 2 (1990)

Director: Frank Henenlotter

Stars: Kevin Van Hentenryck, Judy Grafe, Annie Ross, Kathryn Meisle

Duane and Belial Bradley are both recuperating in the hospital after the accident.  The media is doing anything that they possibly can to get an interview of picture of the now famous twins.  Their Aunt known as Granny Ruth and her daughter Susan sneak into the hospital at night to rescue the twin, but they have already walk out and meet Granny Ruth at the lobby.  Ruth hides them at her house along with other guests that have been staying with her. 

Ruth runs a home for special people, as in people that are so physically deformed that they could not be seen in public without creating a scene.  Ruth has a daughter that has a mutated toddler living inside her womb.  It just is a mouth with razor sharp teeth.  There is a lady there like Belial named Eve.  She becomes pregnant.  While all of this is going on, there is a reporter doing her damnest to get in the house to get pictures and an interview with the Bradley twins.  She gets what she deserves for trying to exploit the twins for profit.
The other house members in this movie are over the top.  It is some creative and imaginative make-up work involved in this movie. The man with a head shaped like a giant crescent moon, and the woman with the two foot tall head.  Did it kill their mother when giving birth to these creatures.  Come ladies, could you even imagine something like coming out of you?  There is even a man with giant sword like teeth in his mouth.  That could cut a woman in two.

Now this is not a great or even good movie.  It ridiculous as hell, but it is so worth watching for cheap entertainment.  I kind of wish there was a house like that.  I would want to visit.  It would scare the hell out of me though.  Give this a chance.  Enjoy.
