Before Director 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.
