Everyone is always asking Dwane, “What’s in the basket?” The answer is his murderous conjoined twin, Belial, who looks like a rubber head on a mass of tissue with two arms sticking out. They are in New York City to get revenge against the doctors who botched their separation.

This radio promo, with its surgical mask given to all attendees, reminds me of famed b-movie director William Castle, who was known for his gimmicks in movies, like shocking audience members during The Tingler, or having the audience vote for the fate of the main character in Mr. Sardonicus.
