“A mixture of creepiness and late '70s pop culture craziness.”
— Nathaniel Thompson, MONDO DIGITAL
Kely (Dianne Hull) collapses on the disco dance floor from what’s revealed to be strychnine poisoning. Assuming a suicide attempt, her boyfriend and her doctor have her committed to “The Fifth Floor,” an asylum with obviously crazy inmates, including Benny (Robert “Freddy Krueger” England). The problem is, Kelly is still sane — and her ordeal is just beginning. With a disco-fueled score by Alan Silvestri (BACK TO THE FUTURE) and moody photography by Daniel Pearl (THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE), THE FIFTH FLOOR is a harrowing and nasty slice of outlaw 1970s horror.
