RDM Productions is all set to produce the sequel to S.F. Brownrigg’s 1973 classic horror “Don’t Look in the Basement.”

The film company has joined hands with Anthony Brownrigg to bring his father’s creation back to life as Don’t Look in the Basement 2.

One of the first ‘inmates take over the asylum” pictures, Basement brought an eerie and disturbing look into the mentally ill. The film ended with the patients and doctors murdered, and one survivor, Sam, left alone with the bodies.

Forty years later, Anthony Brownrigg, S.F. Brownriggs son and director of the Red Victoria, has teamed up with David Rennke “Pearl”, Daniel Redd of RDM Productions, and Andrew Sensenig “Upstream Color” to bring a sequel to the film.

The official trailer was released at Texas Frightmare Weekend Saturday May 3, 2014. While the specific plot has been kept tightly under wraps, the sequel revolves around what happened to the only surviving patient from the original film, and what happens when he is brought back to the original clinic where the murders occurred.

“The film is more of a paranormal thriller than a drive in horror” says Brownrigg. “Dad wanted to produce a sequel in the eighties that revolved around the paranormal, and we took a lot of cues from what he wanted to do. It’s bloody, for certain, but doesn’t compete with the original.”
