Basket Case 3 (1991)

Director: Frank Henenlotter

Stars: Kevin Van Hentenryck, Annie Ross, Gil Roper

In the third and last chapter in the series, Duane is in a straight jacket in a spare bedroom and kept separate from his brother, since he tried to sew them back together.  Eve is going into labor, so Ruth tells everyone to get packed up and load the bus.  They are going to take Eve to see Uncle Hal and Little Hal, so they can help give birth to the babies.  Uncle Hal takes care of Little Hal whom is Ruth's son.  Eve gives birth to a herd of mutant's just like them, so the whole house starts to celebrate the birth.  While they party, two idiot sheriff deputies are outside looking in the windows at what's going on.  They found out the Bradley twins are at the house, and there is a prize for their whereabouts.  Ruth and the house mates must join together to fight back for their privacy and protection.

 For the last in the trilogy, the new creatures are even more silly, but they are great.  This movie was made not long after the second one, so the look and the characters are almost still the same.  The character of Little Hal was the strange one.  For the most part, he had a normal head and face, but the rest of him was a giant blob.  The townies just now finding out that there is something wrong going on in that house.  The sheriff never really knowing what Little Hal looked like.  That Ruth is nothing but a trouble maker. .  I love when on the bus Ruth starts shaking her shimmy, and she starts singing Personality.  That is all you have when you are that hideous, but if you cannot speak or be understood, then you have nothing to offer.
