Directed by Howard Avedis


A young woman (Dianne Hull, Aloha Bobby and Rose) collapses on the disco dance floor from what’s revealed to be strychnine poisoning. Assuming a suicide attempt, her boyfriend (John David Carson, Pretty Maids All in a Row) and her doctor have her committed to The Fifth Floor, an asylum with obviously crazy inmates, including Benny (Robert England, A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Great Smokey Roadblock) and a predatory orderly Carl (Bo Hopkins, Killer Elite, Mutant). The problem is, she’s still sane – and her ordeal is just beginning. Also starring Anthony James (Texas Detour), Mel Ferrer (The Great Alligator), Julie Adams (Creature from the Black Lagoon), Sharon Farrell (Sweet Sixteen) and Patti D’Arbanville (Modern Problems).
