In this horror movie, a dutiful grand-daughter goes home to take care of her elderly grandmother. Once there, she finds herself trapped inside the house with a homicidal maniac.

“Don’t Open the Door!” is a low-budget horror movie made in Texas by S.F Brownrigg. The scene of psycho talking to his mannequin predates the behavior of Joe Spinell’s character Frank Zito in “Maniac”. The action is slow and there are some dull spots, but the film certainly delivers suspenseful atmosphere. Most of the creep factor comes from Larry O’Dwyer as the breathy, giggling and sleazy psycho in the walls. The characters are bizarre and utterly dysfunctional, the direction is competent and there is a bit of unsettling violence.
