Basket Case (1982)

Frank Henenlotter wrote, directed, and handled many additional duties on 1982s Basket Case. It's a classic exploitation movie that proved to be successful in both the quickly disappearing world of grind house theaters and drive-ins, while also breaking out as a vhs home rental.

For me, much as was the case with The Evil Dead, Fangoria magazine alerted me to the upcoming horror film in the early 1980s with brief articles and photos detailing the production. I eagerly awaited the vhs release and was more than pleasantly surprised when the hype was exceeded by the actual item.
