Synopsis: Before William Girdler made Grizzly and The Manitou, his first feature film was ASYLUM OF SATAN, released with the tagline “Love Slaves of Satan tortured to blood-dripping death”. This trippy exploitation film, shot on a budget of just $50,000, features Carla Borelli (Falcon Crest) as Lucina, a young woman under the care of the mysterious Doctor Specter, played by Charles Kissinger (Grizzly, The Manitou). Lucina begins to question the doctor’s methods and discovers things are a lot more sinister than she could ever have imagined.
Fun fact: Michael Aquino (member of the Church of Satan and Temple of Set founder) served as technical advisor on the film.
