 As a general rule pretty much any movie with the warning DON'T right there in the title is usually worth checking out. This movie's great because it's just chock full of insane homicidal mental patients. In fact the majority of characters here are all completely koo-koo. There's really only one female nurse who comes along that seems in any way normal. They also throw in some bloody murders and lots of creepy atmosphere. This is a great recipe for a 70's classic. The only downside is that it gets a bit talky in the middle section. There is a basement but not much actually goes on down there. Also this is public-domain so it's available on all those cheap-ass DVD sets of 50 horror films or whatever so it's very easy to find at no cost. AKA THE FORGOTTEN, DEATH WARD #13, DON"T GO IN THE BASEMENT & THE SNAKE PIT
 Director S.F. Brownrigg went on the next year to make another DON'T flick, DON'T OPEN THE DOOR! which I don't think I've seen yet.

They took the "only a movie" tagline from LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT and even threw some of that movie into their trailer:

Played on a double-bill with the Mario Bava classic TWITCH OF THE DEATH NERVE:

and also with Paul Bartel's PRIVATE PARTS:

I like to imagine this movie was an inspiration for the Ramones:
