Director and co-screenwriter Anthony Brownigg is continuing the story-line his father, S.F. Brownigg, began. Brownigg’s Don’t Look in the Basement 2 is set forty years after his father’s film, The Forgotten, originally titled Don’t Look in the Basement, ended. Don’t Look in the Basement 2 follows the only known survivor of a mass murder returns to the institution where the brutal killings took place. The survivor’s presence triggers a series of increasingly disturbing events.

From the Press Release:

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.
