If you thought Sex and the City 2 was a stomach-churner, you ain t seen nothing yet! Long before playing one of Carrie Bradshaw s best gal pals, actress Kristen Davis found herself up against an altogether different kind of horror in 1987 s Doom Asylum: a riotous mix of gore, gags and goth girl groups galore!

When a group of horny teens wind up on the grounds of a creepy abandoned asylum, they think they ve found the perfect place to party. Little do they know that inside the building s crumbling walls lurks a freakishly deformed maniac, driven to madness by the tragic loss of his fiancée in a car accident. With an array of grisly surgical tools at his disposal, it s only a matter of time before the youngsters begin meeting various splattery ends at the hands of the ghoulish Coroner.

Helmed by director Richard Friedman (Scared Stiff and Phantom of the Mall: Eric s Revenge), and also starring Penthouse Pet of the Year 1988 Patty Mullen (Frankenhooker), Doom Asylum combines outlandish gore and a wise-cracking villain to create one of the most wildly entertainingly blood-spattered slashers of the late 80s.

Watch Richard Friedman's corpse-collecting 'Coroner' blithely hacks his bloody slay into B-Horror Hi

After a fatal car crash kills beautiful, foofy-haired bombshell Judy LaRue (Patty Mullen), her sleazy beau Mitch (Michael Rogen) is so gruesomely galvanized by the grisly death of his frisky fiancee, this slimy ambulance chaser bloodily becomes the bellicose, body-bag bursting, meat-faced, asylum creeping psycho 'The Coroner' (Michael Rogen), and as this hardbodied slasher movie entourage converges upon this bone-saw wielding sadists desolated crumbling domain, these boorishly bickering, day-glow dunderheads, headed by heroically hardbodied wet dream Patty Mullen very soon discover that partying (bickering!) at the 'Doom Asylum' may not have been the greatest choice of venue for their boozy B-movie shenanigans, as the sardonically skin-flaying, wickedly wise-cracking Coroner very soon cramps their big-haired style by intimately introducing his gnarly collection of murderous-looking mortuary tools to their still-living, diligently aerobicized torso's! Horror maestro Richard Friedman's darkly funny 'Doom Asylum' is sublime slasher movie schadenfreude, an outrageously compelling 80s cult classic whose myriad 'spiky highlights' include a splattery splendour of gruesomely-delivered death, and a terrifically titillating rooftop girl-fight with the deliciously acerbic spike-haired, shrill-voiced twisted Sister Tina (Ruth Collins) as the delightfully deviant director Richard Friedman's corpse-collecting 'Coroner' blithely hacks his bloody slay into B-Horror History!!!
