In his feature film Don’t Look in the Basement 2 director and co-screenwriter Anthony Brownrigg continues the story line of the original 1973 ‘Basement’ film directed by his late father S.F. Brownrigg and released as The Forgotten. This 2015 sequel which Brownrigg tags a “supernatural thriller” is set forty years later when the only known survivor of a mass murder returns to the institution where the grisly killings took place, his presence triggering a series of increasingly disturbing events.
Don’t Look in the Basement 2 was produced by David Rennke (Source Productions) and Daniel Redd (RDM Productions). The film is scheduled for release on DVD/Blu-Ray May 24th from LeglessCorpse Films and on VOD this Summer.
Brownrigg strengthened the connection of ‘Basement 2’ to his father’s earlier film by casting Camilla Carr in a featured role and revisiting the Trinity Institute (formerly Westminster College) in Tehuacana, Texas, for four weeks of principal filming.
Dallas’ own Andrew Sensenig stars as Dr. William Matthews with Arianne Margot as Dr. Lucy Mills and Frank Mosley as Dr. Lance White. Megan Emerick, who co-wrote the screenplay with Brownrigg, plays a supporting role as Nurse Jennifer. Jim O’Rear and Scott Tepperman are orderlies Billy and Bishop, respectively. Willie H. Minor, Jr. is Sam Withers, the mysterious returning patient.
Daniel Redd, David Rennke, Andrew Sensenig, and Brownrigg partnered to create Don’t Look in the Basement 2, LLC under which the film was produced.
Brownrigg earned the Best Picture Award at the 2010 Bram Stoker Film Festival for his film Red Victotia.
