Don't Look In The Basement (1973) Dr. Stephens runs a secluded sanitarium with a small group of mental patients, one of whom uses the ax that was supposed to be for therapeutic wood-chopping to cut down Dr. Stephens. Now, Dr. Masters is running the asylum alone with her brand-new nurse, who does her best to befriend the eclectic group of patients: the shell-shocked ex-sergeant; the lobotomized Popsicle-sucking child-man; the puritanical former judge; the doom-dealing old woman; the would-be mother to a baby doll; the giggling, clown-haired prankster; the needy nymphomaniac; and the mainly catatonic young woman who occasionally indulges in knife attacks. The pretty young nurse was eager to work with the forward-thinking Dr. Stephens, but finds his successor to be less than welcoming and the hospital to be less than wholesome.

Movie Quote(s):
  • [Ray is fixing the asylum's telephone] Allyson King: You know, I used to live in this place where the phone man was always coming around. Ray Daniels: That bad, huh? Allyson King: Uh uh... that good. Ray Daniels: Oh, I thought that you meant that you'd had a lot of phone trouble. Allyson King: Hell, I didn't even have a phone!
  • Allyson King: You're all alike. Danny... Jaffee... ALL of you! HYPOCRITES! And you, trying to be so damn pure. Get out! GET OUT!
  • Mrs. Callingham: Up the airy mountain, down the rushy glen, we dare not go a hunting, for fear of little men!

Movie Trivia:
  • The UK cinema version was cut by the BBFC to remove a closeup shot of an axe blow to a woman's body and the film later found itself on the banned list of video nasties. The cut version was released on the UK HHO label in 2005 and the full uncut version (now rated 15) was released on the Stax label later the same year.
  • This film was shot in 12 days on a budget of less than $100,000.
