Down on Us is a low budget 1984 movie about the United States government's plot to assassinate 1960's rock stars, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, and Jimi Hendrix, using an elite force of killers. It is sometimes known as Beyond the Doors.

The movie does not use any of the original songs of the artists portrayed due to high royalty fees. Instead, they used songs written to sound like the originals.
