Asylum of Satan (1972)

How bad is it? For being very low-budget, it's not as terrible as it could be, but it's not great.
Should you see it? Maybe as a double feature with "The Manitou."

William Girdler made a number of exploitation films before his death at age 30. I've reviewed his last film, "The Manitou;" this was his first. There's a doctor at an asylum killing patients... with an axe. He sacrifices a virgin to his master, only to find out - you guessed it - she wasn't a virgin after all. Then there's payback of sorts.There's also a mechanical snake, fake bugs and a pretty bad devil mask.
