Movie Info

Spend seven weeks in a London community where the lunatics literally run the asylum as filmmaker Peter Robinson and a sparse skeleton crew check in to the radical Archway Community of controversial psychiatrist R.D. Liang. Operating under the theory that the only way schizophrenic to truly recover is for them to live in an environment where they are free to do as they please but also held accountable for their actions, the Archway Community houses a tribal society of deeply disturbed souls.

not as good as monster club, but still quite interesting

Asylum tries telling similar tales (twice) and comes up pathetically short in the scare department.

A great little gothic horror anthology. Track this one down if you can!

Audience Reviews for Asylum

A new doctor arrives at an institution for the incurably insane and sets about the task of identifying which of the inmates is the hospital's former administrator. Along the way we're treated to four episodic tales of horror. A mistress who's lover chopped his wife up in separate pieces and stored her in a freezer. A tailor who is contracted to construct a suit that will raise the dead. A disturbed woman tormented by her beautiful but murderous 'best friend'. And finally a man of medicine who is convinced he can transfer the souls of men in to the tiny toy robots that he himself constructs.

For low budget English horror this really isn't bad stuff. If you're a fan of such films as Tales of Terror and Creepshow then this might be right up your alley.
