Don’t Go in the House. Don’t Go in the Woods. Don’t Go in the Basement.

But DO check out Don’t Answer the Phone!, a highly underrated 1980 horror directed by the excellently named Robert Hammer.

It’s got everything, and by that we mean a psychotic, weeping, daddy-issues Vietnam vet killer who poses as a photographer; his nubile victims; ineffectual LAPD investigators, a Dr Fraser Crane-type radio host…and much much more.

Nicholas Worth (Swamp Thing/Darkman) gives an extraordinarily interesting performance as killer Kirk Smith.
