Hermen is lonely but strange guy who goes out one night and abducts Rudy, an attractive young woman and locks her in a big wooden cage in his basement.
Generally, The Cellar Door does not offer anything in the terms of originality, and you can obviously tell its a low budget movie from the opening scene, but surprisingly enough, it had my attention, the acting by the two leads Michelle Tomlinson and James Dumont (who also serves as co producer) were actually very good, it was very interesting to see how Rudy tried to lore Hermen into a trap by playing some clever head games, and using her seductive quality to try and gain the advantage, one thing I can say is that Tomlinson certainly does have a really seductive look, the type of look that would make any man turn into putty in her hands, James Dumont does not have a seductive quality and neither is he attractive, but does play his role of sexual deviant very convincingly, and his character reactions towards Rudy's head games are spot on, if you consider Tomlinson's very good looks.
The script by Christopher Nelson and the direction of Matt Zittal together with the performances by the two leads, is what makes this film worth the 90 minutes, although I'll ad that this film does not have the prim and proper look of a Hollywood blockbuster, so for those that prefer that look might want to avoid, but for those that can notice talent when you see it, definitely give it a shot.
