"A young woman collapses on the disco dance floor of what's revealed to be strychnine poisoning.
Assuming that this is an attempt at suicide, her boyfriend and doctor have her committed to the Fifth Floor,
an asylum with obviously crazy inmates and a predatory orderly. The problem is, she's still sane!" (IMDb)

Watched this wicked asylum thriller directed by Howard Avedis ( They're Playing with Fire).
Starring Dianne Hull, Bo Hopkins, Patti D'Arbanville, Sharon Farrell, Anthony James
and Robert Englund as one of the mental patients.

The cast did a great job, especially Farrell was a real nutcase
and Hopkins one evil SOB.
The crazy thing is that its actually based on a true story.

Anyone seen it?

I'll tell you, buddy, I am really dating myself here. I saw "The Fifth Floor" in 1980 (imdb.com lists it as 1978, but I know that it wasn't released until much later) at the Academy Theatre, a scummy, yet endearing, grindhouse in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with a bunch of drug addicts, homeless people, and freaks. This was a great way to see this solid little exploitationer written and directed by Howard/Hikmet Avedis, who did a lot of fun, trashy stuff.
