"Smokes. Smokes, I got joints and bags. Nickel and dime bags. Gold Colombia smoke. I got acid, blotters, rainbows, windowpanes, speed, downs …” This goes on at some length so you’ll just have to check out the podcast to hear Chad do the whole spiel. Join your faithful Grue-Crew - Crystal Cleveland, Chad Hunt, Bill Mulligan, and Jeff Mohr -  as they play a-tisket, a-tasket with Frank Henenlotter’s Basket Case (1982).

A solitary and strange preteen boy wreaks revenge on his harassers when he makes a disturbing discovery in the depth of a forest.

Crystal is a big Frank Henenlotter fan so it’s no surprise that Basket Case is her pick and she still loves it, calling it super weird and super messed up. She also recommends the Joe Bob Briggs treatment, currently available on Shudder. Chad rented Basket Case as a VHS tape and he fell in love with it. He appreciates the way Henenlotter brings the oddest concepts to life and is able to mix just the right amount of comedy with horror. Back in the day, Bill used to hang out in Glens Falls, NY, one of the filming locations for Basket Case. Not surprisingly, the scene depicting “the boys” aunt reading to them while they sit in her lap always gets to him. Jeff is most impressed by the special effects found in Basket Case and all for a budget of $35,000.

Basket Case is currently available to stream on Shudder on a Blu-ray disc form Arrow Video.
