More than 40 years ago, it ignited a firestorm of outrage in America and DPP 39 condemnation in the UK. Now one of the grisliest gems of the '80s can be seen uncut and fully remastered like never before: A shy incinerator worker (an unnerving performance by Dan Grimaldi of THE SOPRANOS) scarred by memories of his mother's abuse begins luring women to his childhood home for incendiary torment, including "one of the most shocking, notorious scenes in sleaze-horror history" (Mondo Digital). Director/co-writer Joseph Ellison delivers "an underrated classic on the same level as MANIAC" (Ninja Dixon), now featuring a new 2K scan from the original negative - plus the alternate TV Version and The Extended Cut combining scenes from both - with 2+ hours of exclusive Special Features.

Press Quotes

A great film... A dark, gruesome and nasty little gem deserving of a loftier placing in horror history. Ignore the warning and go in.

     —Dread Central

An essential slice of indie '80s American horror.

     —Mondo Digital

Genuinely disturbing... As a depiction of one man's downward spiral into insanity and chaos, it makes for frequently unsettling viewing.

     —Eye For Film

A must-see for genre fans... A new kind of horror with extreme violence, solid direction and on-the-mark effects that makes this film stronger than it had to be.'


If you dig on the likes of Lustig’s Maniac (or Hitchcock’s Psycho if your trying to be all fancy about it… but the type of fancy where you can be sleazy and demure as the situation dictates) you’ll dig the ever lovin’ shit out of Don’t Go in the House; it’s a disco-drenched fever dream filled with Gothic ambience, social consciousness, and jaw-dropping torture and deserves a place on the highest of shelves of grindhouse revoltin’ royalty!

     —DanXIII, Horror Fuel

Severin's 2-disc edition Blu-ray of Don't Go In The House (1979) is the definitive HD platter for this grim video nasty, offering a new 2K scan of the OCN with three cuts of the film and marathon of deep-dive extras that make this an essential purchase for any exploitation/video nasty fiend looking to upgrade. 

     —Ken, MC Bastard's Mausoleum
