Product Overview

Twice the screams...double the fear! It's the VCI's Grindhouse Double Feature of Don't Look in the Basement and Don't Open the Door.

Don't Look in the Basement: Nurse Charlotte Beale arrives at the isolated Stephens Sanitarium to work, only to learn that Dr. Stephens was murdered by one of the patients and his successor, Dr. Geraldine Masters, is not very eager to take on new staff. Charlotte finds her job maddeningly hard as the patients torment and harass her at every turn; she soon learns why Dr. Masters is so eager to keep outsiders out.

Don't Open the Door: In this horror movie, a dutiful granddaughter goes home to take care of her elderly grandmother. Once there, she finds herself trapped inside the house with a homicidal maniac.

Review [Basement] The last twenty minutes spiral into some good clausterphobic suspense as our daft heroine begins to piece together the horror of her situation while the resident loonies pop in and out of the darkness to torment her. I won't spoil the ending for you because it is quite a treat and gives quite a release from the madness preceeding it..."Basement" also has an air of black comedy laced throughout it...the are quite a few scenes that will make you laugh, but they never distract you from what the story is about. A lot of things about it haven't aged well in years, but for me, it never ceases to be fun and at the same time, disturbing...I think that people will either love it or hate it...the people who love it will enjoy it's brand of grindhouse suspense....the people who hate it will probably think that it's unbelievable or too dated, or write it off as just a no-budget piece of shit. Either way, if you surrender to it's faults, "Don't Look in the Basement" is one hell of a good time.

Bleeding Skull [Door] ...a trash classic...several shining moments and some fresh photography.
Dave Sindelar, Fantastic Movie Musings and Ramblings [Basement] ...extreme nastiness...the characters are quite interesting, and the acting from the cast of unknowns is excellent...
