I remember seeing a movie it was in black-and-white about these men that were held captive in a basement and it was a trap door. Every time the captor opened the trap door the men would threaten to escape and kill him. I don’t remember if the movie was about him forcing them into a labor camp or something like that. The movie ended where the captor opened the trap door, tripped and fell into the basement. The men jumped him and killed him. I don’t remember who the actors were but I remember being freaked out by this particular movie when I was a kid.

“Bowery at Midnight” (1942)?
Here is the full movie from YouTube. It’s only an hour long and the scene of the men in the basement attacking their captor happens almost at the very end.
Wow!! After reading the plot this is it! Thanks so much Livinghead! I ha e to get this movie!!!
Thanks Veets! It looks like a real potboiler!
