I was lucky and got to see a "sequel" (of sorts) to Frank Henenlotter's trash classic Basket Case in a very old format: Live on stage!

Beverly Bonner wrote a one-act play called "Casey: 30 Years Later" and it premiered here in Pittsburgh, following a (rather ill-fated) screening of the Henenlotter movie, one of the most successful horror films in the days of VHS rental. Belial was pretty creepy in the day! You can read about it at this link (and I'd be grateful if you did):

Bravo, Max! A great read. The play sounds terrific. If it starts going the convention route, I'll make sure to see it. Sounds like a good time. Too bad FH's stuff is a bit too recent for Monsters Bash. I think they'd get a kick out of it.

It's more than too recent for Monster Bash. It's too gory and too vulgar. Heads would explode if Henenlotter's films were ever shown. He has the love of schlock horror of a John Landis, but the aesthetic of John Waters. And I mean vintage, PINK FLAMINGOS-era Waters, not nicey HAIRSPRAY the Musical Waters.

Nope, no way, no how will a Henenlotter film EVER show at a Monster Bash!
