Madhouse (Or There Was A Little Girl) focuses on the character of Julia, a teacher at a school for the blind and deaf, who lives in a constant state of fear because of her evil and deformed twin sister, named Mary.
Julia tells her boyfriend about her traumatic childhood, and how her sister used to torture her on their birthday every year, by way of emotional and physical abuse and a rabid Rottweiler that obeys Mary's every command. As they day of her birth draws near, Julia's friends and acquaintances start to drop dead one by one, leading to a grotesque and maniacal climax that you won't soon forget.
Directed by Ovidio G. Assonitis (The Visitor), Madhouse is a slice of 80s slasher trash that has to be seen to be believed. The score is memorable, and the performances are appropriately over the top. Filmed on location in Savannah, Georgia, fans of grindhouse and Z-grade horror should enjoy it immensely.
Madhouse was quite the controversial little film upon its release, landing a spot on the infamous "video nasty" list.
