Product Description

Herman has been searching for the perfect girl, but all he s collected are pieces a chunk of hair; a severed finger; a jar of blood until the alluring and beautiful Rudy. Refusing to play along in his twisted game, she is imprisoned in a wooden cage with only her wits against his savage murderous insanity. Will she win the desperate, hallucinatory game of cat and mouse and escape through the Cellar Door, or die trying?


The Cellar Door is a riveting and intense horror/thriller that delivers on all fronts, and make sure you get your hands on this Independent film that plays much bigger and better than any big budget Hollywood film in its genre in recent memory. The cinematography is fantastic. The cast was just as impressive. Intelligent and gripping.

The Cellar Door is a smart, well-made thriller in a time when thrillers aren t smart or well made. A brilliantly tense opening sequence. DuMont does a superb job with the character. Childlike one moment, terrifying the next but always believable. Ms. Tomlinson is fascinating to watch in this role. A smart, taut exercise in psychological terror.

One of the best new horror films of 2007. Michelle Tomlinson s groundbreaking performance in the girl-trapped-by-a-serial killer The Cellar Door has officially dubbed her the Pretty/Scary One to Watch for this year. Superb acting. What makes this film so amazingly engaging is the combination of intelligent dialogue and talented actors to deliver them. Rarely seen even in a big-budget Hollywood picture, there is a definite chemistry of character between Tomlinson's Michelle and DuMont's Herman. The Cellar Door looks great and has some really beautiful special effects. It's definitely a horror film of some substantial terror with the attention to detail and gorgeous set design. The Cellar Door belongs on the shelf next to all the other good new horror movies like SAW, Slither, and Open Water. Its way above Hostel when it comes to drama, and its light years beyond Captivity, Black Christmas, and The Hitcher remake when it comes to filmmaking.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better Than Captivity But Worse Than Hostel August 31, 2009
A low-budget serial killer flick that focus's on the relationship between captor & captured instead of torture.
Almost the entire movie takes place in Captain Psycho's basement,
so there isn't much in the way of scenery, just a cage.
But it's a nice cage.
He "got an A in shop class".
A cage where he keeps women.
Well one woman at a time, till they die, or try to escape.
And during their luxurious stay he collectss pieces of them.
(You don't want to know what that means, but it's not what you think)
The movie starts off as he loses his last venture,
and continues as he finds, stalks, and captures a new obsession (all of this is in the first 5 -10 minutes)
The rest of the movie plays out like a less outlandish, infinitely better version of Captivity,
No bizarre torture scenes, no high tech surveillance equipment, or twist endings you could see a mile off shore.
Just a psycho, an altar, a beautiful woman, and a cage.
Not a terrible amount of gore.
There's enough though to keep a gorehound's appetite sated, but not enough to be considered overly gory.
Like another reviewer here stated; the creator of this flick is someone who deserves a bigger budget to work with.
There is a very minimalist approach to this story, but it's one that works.
This movie makes a loaf out of a slice of bread.
In both the positive (budget) and negative (plot) sense.
At the very least it's worth a rental.
A purchase if you like torture flicks.

If you love something.... lock it your basement.
If it stays it'll love you forever,
If it dies it was never meant to be.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ughhhh October 12, 2010
I don't know what movie "zombie junkie" watched, this movie is "COOLER" (his words) than SAW (the highest grossing horror franchise ever) and hostel?! Horrible actors, james dumont made me want to take the dvd out and smash it. Terrible. It's a tired premise, and is on par with Captivity. BAD MOVIE

5.0 out of 5 stars The Cellar Door December 13, 2007
This movie is cooler than Saw, Hostel and makes Captivity look like the expensive crap that it was. It has you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. Great actors, script and camera work. I saw it at Shriekfest in Los Angeles and can't wait for the DVD, I have friends who love Good Thriller/Horror films and this one makes the perfect gift.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scary and frightening! March 27, 2008
By Dee J.
I've enjoyed seeing James Dumont in a number of films and in TV shows like CSI. He was great and "scarily" believable in The Cellar Door. I'm looking forward to the DVD bonus features!
