Josh Vargas’ remake of S.F. Brownrigg’s 1973 sanitarium shocker DON’T LOOK IN THE BASEMENT has added two NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD actors to its cast.
Vargas informed Dread Central that Judith O’Dea and Bill Hinzman will be reunited on screen for the first time since they appeared in George Romero’s 1968 NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. They’ll be playing Dr. Geraldine Masters and Dr. Roy Stevens respectively in a cast that also includes Brooke Lewis (SLIME CITY MASSACRE), Kelli Maroney (CHOPPING MALL) and 2001 MANIACS director Tim Sullivan. Filming begins July 16 in Tehuacana, TX at the same location as the original. Here’s the premise:
"Young nurse Charlotte Beale arrives at the Stevens Sanitarium and Home for the Mentally Ill after accepting a job offer from the Sanitarium’s head doctor, Dr. Roy Stevens, who is known for his unorthodox methods of treating the mentally insane. Upon arrival, she is greeted with a stunning revelation: Dr. Stevens and the majority of the staff have been murdered by one of the patients, and the Sanitarium itself is on the brink of takeover. The only remaining staff member, Dr. Geraldine Masters, has resumed control of the Sanitarium but can hardly remain in control of the patients, who are all forgotten members of society deemed “hopelessly” damaged psychologically. Willing to assist Dr. Masters with the task of keeping the patients under control, she begins to get to know each of the patients and grows particularly fond of a child-like man named Sam. As she continues to befriend Sam, strange things begin to occur, and Charlotte soon realizes things may not be as they appear, and the sense of grave danger becomes imminent."
