Don't Go In The House (1980)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Donald Kohler is a young who, as a child, was severley burned by his sadistic/overbearing mother as a cruel means of discipline and punishment. After years of social estrangement pass, Donald comes home to his mother after an accident at the local incinerator, only to find that his mother died in her sleep. Now released from her possession, Donald's mind teeters around dangerous activities in order to ease his repression; particularly searching out for women (blondes or burnettes, just like his mother) in random mundane locations, bringing them home, hanging them rightside up in a personally installed steel plated room and burning them alive with a flamethrower.
If you do...then don't say we didn't warn you.

- If you do...then don't say we didn't warn you.
- ...Threshold into terror.
- You Have Been Warned!
- In a steel room built for revenge they die burning... in chains.
- it was too late to tell them...
- The film's original soundtrack turned out to be unusable, having been recorded on what actor Dan Grimaldi termed "less than up to date equipment". The soundtrack in its entirety had to be re-recorded and re-dubbed.
The actresses who played the burns victims were dancers chosen because they were the same height as the actresses playing the victims, but significantly slimmer in build. This is because when the human body is subjected to burns, it shrinks due to a loss of fluid.
Selected by Quentin Tarantino for the First Quentin Tarantino Film Fest in Austin, Texas, 1996.
The first video release in the UK was uncut. A following cut version was later unofficially approved by the BBFC. The film was not prosecuted as a 'video nasty' as the distributor assured the BBFC that this cut version would replace the uncut version.
