A young woman finds herself held against her will in an eerie mental asylum by the sinister "Dr. Specter" and his masculine-looking assistant, Martine. She begins to suspect that the visions of horror she experiences are not nightmares and that she is due to be sacrificed to The Evil One.

IMDb

 

William Girdler’s Asylum of Satan is truly a sight to behold. When Chad finally got to the end and saw the devil, he thought it was just one of the cult leaders wearing a rubber mask. Even so, some of the effects were unsettling enough to give him the creeps despite the film’s low budget. Asylum of Satan is a really, really, rough movie that is poorly written and poorly acted according to Jeff, but you can still see the promise of an eye for creating disturbing shots. Bill confirms that it is not a good movie but he did like Charles Kissinger’s double, nay, triple role which at first, he was unable to spot. Doc is all aboard the it’s-a-bad-movie train but for him, it feels like quintessential, 70s, drive-in movie fare and he found a kind of charm to Asylum of Satan

In the final analysis, the 70s Grue-Crew says, hey, Asylum of Satan is William Girdler’s first film!! You know you want to, even must, watch it, Grue-Believers! The Power of The Black Saint Compels You! 

At the time of this writing, Asylum of Satan is available to stream on Amazon Prime so head on over and check it out. You can also check out these episodes of the Decades of Horror 1970s podcast on other William Girdler films:
