 I've occasionally wondered why ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST, after winning multiple Academy Awards and whatnot, didn't have more rip-off movies made in it's wake. I know there was that horrible more modern movie with Angelina Jolie that just switched up genders for no reason but in the 70s, off the top of my head, I can't think of many. This one here fits pretty well into that category though and accelerates the sleaziness factor, mostly thanks to Bo Hopkins portraying a gropey/rapey orderly, and also throws in more horror touches in the way it's filmed and all the creepy music cues. The story deals with a disco-dancing barmaid who ends up being inadvertently poisoned and sent to an asylum for the not very sane. No one believes she doesn't belong there, and some of the ways the main actress(Dianne Hull) plays this character you do understand why they might think this. It all ends up being a very heavy drama supposedly based on a true-life ordeal. Robert Englund plays one of the friendlier nutjobs, 'Large Marge' is another and if you look really hard you might be able to spot Michael Berryman from ONE FLEW.. in the background. You even get a sorta-"Chief"-like character who helps dish out some bloody justice to the shitty hospital staff. The only thing missing is Sydney Lassick!
