Don't Go in the House (1980)

Horror, Exploitation 1h 29m 1980

“Dark, chilling, grim and gruesome… it is a great little film; a nasty little gem that’s under-appreciated, deserving of your time and a loftier placing in horror history. Ignore the warning and go in.” - Dread Central

“If you’re after the safe popcorn chills of FRIDAY THE 13TH, forget it.” - Justin Kerswell, Hysteria Lives!

DON’T GO IN THE HOUSE is the darker side of SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER. As a child, Donald Kohler (Dan Grimaldi) grew up under the sadistic rule of his overbearing mother. Her method of punishment? A severe burning. Through the years, Donald finds no comfort, sympathy, or rest in the real world. When he discovers his mother has died in her sleep, he thinks he may finally be free. But with the nightmarish visions and voices in his head, the damage has been done. Now he hopes to incinerate his repressive past by seeking out young women, taking them home and burning them alive. A notorious “Video Nasty” slasher that delivers on its title, this disco-infused slasher is a grimy, NYC-set update of PSYCHO for the 1980s.
