Editor's Note
Self-righteous nurse Lucretia Terry battles with self-righteous doctor Donovan MacLeod (Robert Stack) over the treatment of the mental patients in their ward. Meanwhile, screamy inmate Lorna (Polly Bergen) and destructive pyromaniac Edna (Barbara Barrie) cope with the conditions of the ward. Some consider this a camp masterpiece, a la SHOCK CORRIDOR. Others find its less-than-contemporary treatment of mental illness insulting. Either way, it is beautifully shot by lensman Lucien Ballard (THE WILD BUNCH, THE KILLING).

MOD means manufatured on demand. The disc is created after the customer orders and comes on a DVD-R. DVD-Rs look like the discs you're used to and offer the same audio and image quality. This recordable media is used to manufacture titles on demand, as fully authorized by the content provider. Each disc comes fully packaged, with artwork, in a standard Amaray case for DVD, although for reissued products the artwork may differ from the original.
