Don’t go into the House (1979)
Director: Joseph Ellison
Main Stars: Dan Grimaldi, Charles Bonet, Bill Ricci, Johanna Brushay
Storyline: An abused child grows to become a sadist female killer
Review (Spoils): A young child named Donny (Dan Grimaldi ) who was abused and burned by his sadist family grows up to become a construction worker. In time he starts to stalk and kill women that he hunts down at night. He places them into a cold strange steel room and ties them up and sets them on fire with a flame torch.
It seems the youth of Donny and his mother holding his hands over the gas burning stove paid off and now he is a fire crazed madman that hates women. The fire throwing scene I do have to admit is over the top and memorable as it is highly graphic and probably places some added points to this rating. The film is very grainy and gloomy which works well for it. This is movie is really messed up and of course it has lame moments but for this era it is a gem in its own twisted way.
Rating: If you’re looking for film that leaves you with a icky feeling and enjoy such twisted torments like I Spit on your Grave or The Last House on the Left (of the 70s era) then try this one out. It’s not a great as them but it has its own dark, tormented feel and plus some groovy disco music.
