peacefully came into Peach Valley, but in a matter of hours his
friends will be persecuted, his brother will be wrongfully imprisoned,
his children will be kidnapped and the woman he loves will lie
at his feet all because of the greedy and corrupt Peach Valley
Sheriffs Department. But when a man, or blob, has lost it
all, the cold truth is he has nothing left to lose and as we all
know vengeance is a dish best served that way. One man, er
blob, pushed to the edge is going to push back and walk tall,
or scuttle tall more likely. He is going to bring hell to Peach
Valley, HELL I say! And that man, er
blobs name is
loved Basket Case
and I swooned over Basket Case 2, but Basket Case 3:
The Progeny knocks it out of the park as the Bradley boys
get to cut loose and wreck havoc one more time in the third spectacular
chapter in the series.
up immediately after the events of Basket Case 2, director
and writer Frank Henenlotter once again takes us into the bizarre
relationship of brothers Dwayne and Belial Bradley. Belial isnt
speaking to Dwayne anymore after he tried to sew him back on his
side and one egg short of a dozen Dwayne isnt taking it
very well. Also Eve, Belials smoking hot blob of a girlfriend
is pregnant and starting her labor contractions. Not knowing how
to handle the situation, Granny Ruth loads up the freak bus and
heads to see her old flame Dr. Hal and their love child little
Hal to help with the birth of Belial and Eves child. But
once the freaks cross the border into Peach Valley, all bets are
off and things are going to get ugly, REAL UGLY!
Progeny is full of yuks and yucks as it goes from scenes of
laugh-out-loud parody humor to great scenes of visceral carnage
and fountains of spraying gore all held tightly together by the
story of vengeance and brotherly love. Although Belial is still
the man in this one, Henenlotter lets the leash off the Dwayne
Bradley character and actor Kevin Van Hentenryck runs with it.
Dwayne is off the hook without Belial and his telepathic communication,
and Van Hentenryck plays him as daffy and daft as he can and delivers
a great and truly absurd performance.
Granny Ruth and a lot of the supporting freaks get more fleshed
out roles and backgrounds in this one, as they are sick and tired
of living in normal societys shadow.
like the other films in the series the central character is still
Belial, that lovable blob of rage and fury. When Belial loses
all he holds dear, one thing is for sure, someones going
to pay for it, and pay for it they do. Belial, bites, chomps,
claws and rips his way through nearly all of Peach Valleys
law enforcement, and what happens in order for Belial to complete
his mission of vengeance is nothing short of amazing.
flick is just a blast, if you liked the others in the series,
then this one is the continual evolvement of the story and characters
and shouldnt be missed by anyone.
