DON'T LOOK IN THE BASEMENT

From low-budget cult-film director S.F. Brownrigg ("Don't Open the Door!," "Poor White Trash 2" and "Keep My Grave Open"), this gory little chiller takes place in an experimental hospital for the criminally insane where the creative thinking director allows several inmates to act out their psychotic delusions (you know, like - necrophilia, paranoia and popsicles).

Things really start to get nuts when a new staffer arrives... starting with the bloody axe-murder of the doctor himself, and leading to a total takeover of this hallowed institution by its most crazy and violent inhabitants.

This film was shot in 12 days on a budget of less than $100,000.  Still, it is considered one of the best films of the 1970's drive-in genre. DON'T LOOK IN THE BASEMENT is a true horror classic.
