A young nurse finds herself at the mercy of an insane medical staff when she arrives at a remote institution, only to find out that the original staff had been killed and the crazies are running the nuthouse! This trashy Grindhouse classic is torn and tattered, using only the most rudimentary filming on a non-existent budget. The film's greatest strengths lies in its kooky characters and exaggerated performances that create a true sense of delirium and madness. In its original run, it was double-billed with THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT, which shared its tasteless violence and crude production. Though the plotting is easily predictable, the pace moves along at a quick pace with enough kills and gratuitous nudity to hold the audience's attention until the final payoff in the end. DON'T earned its way on to the infamous Video Nasties list in the UK thanks to several bloody moments of early gore. After its original release in 1973 as THE FORGOTTEN, distributors changed the title during the film's re-release to cash in on the popular "DON'T" trend in schlocky Exploitation films of the late 70s and early 80s. For a cheapie shocker, DON'T makes for a great deal of bloody good fun!
