The Beast in the Cellar (1971)
Are You Dying, Young Man?
Young Man, I Think You're Dying
Nomination Year: 1996
SYNOPSIS: Two old maids have kept their homicidal brother locked up in the basement -- until now....
If you put the plot elements and characters of Arsenic and Old Lace into a blender, this might be what came out if you had committed a mortal sin and required serious penance.
- Deus Ex Machina
"Where's the Police When You--Oh."
The Beast (i.e., crazy guy in cellar) is about to kill Joyce. The cops mysteriously appear JUST in time to shoot and kill him as he's strangling her.
- Worst Cover Copy
This Beast Ain't a Seller
The drawing makes it sort of look like a fuzzy Sasquatch rather than a crazy old guy. But then nobody would rent a movie called Uncle Steve's in the Basement, would they?
I Think There's a Movie in This Glitch
There's a glitch at the start of the "you'll be dead soon" clip. It's a film glitch. It's the sort of thing you have to see.
