Description: One day the mother of Donald Kohler nearly killed her son with, then inflicted severe psychological trauma to small child. When a mother dies, Donald is starting to go crazy. In his head begin to sound different voices calling embittered world-Donald to avenge the human race.
He starts to get acquainted with the girls, seduce them and bring into his home. There he stripped them, sprinkle with gas and ignited. Once the human bodies are burned and turned into black charred embers, he dresses up the skeletons in the maternal clothes and sits in his room. Then Donald begins an intimate conversation with them.
“Don’t Go in the House” is an obscure early 80’s horror film that seems to be forgotten by many horror fans.The film is well-made and slickly directed by Joseph Ellison,a talented musician and a screenwriter.
The film is filled with truly sick atmosphere and there is one of the most sadistic burning killings ever captured on screen.The underlying theme of child abuse is also taboo-breaking.”Don’t Go in the House” is often trashed by some politically correct people-still it beats most of the crap being put out today. Highly recommended.
