Don’t Look in the Basement is a ‘70s, B-movie, cult classic, about a young, psychiatric nurse, Charlotte Beale (Rosie Holotik, 1972 Playboy cover-girl), who goes to work at an isolated sanitarium only to learn the proprietor, Dr. Stephens (Michael Harvey, Berlin Express, Tycoon), was murdered by one of the patients.
Struggling under the horrendous conditions at the severely understaffed asylum — and the torment heaped upon her patients — she is puzzled by the resistance of Stephens’ successor, Dr. Geraldine Masters (Annabelle Weenick, Cope and 1/2, Common Law Wife), to hiring new staff and by the woman’s efforts to keep outsiders at bay. Soon, the patients may truly be running the asylum …
Also known as The Forgotten, Don’t Look in the Basement is considered one of the best low-budget movies in the horror/thriller genre … and there is no other film quite like it!
Also starring Bill McGhee (On Valentine’s Day, 1918), Jessie Lee Fulton (The Sugarland Express, Paper Moon) and Robert Dracup (Mr. Nanny, Necessary Roughness, Pet Sematary).
Available on December 16, 2014. Presented in full screen with an aspect ratio of 4 X 3 and original sound from Film Chest Media Group.
