Audience Reviews for Asylum (House of Crazies)
The young psychiatrist is supposed to figure out which of the patients was the doctor who went mad so he could get the job, actually. The whole time I was certain I knew who it was too, but I was wrong. I love when a movie surprises me like that. This is also an anthology horror, though. The stories were all really eerie, although only one was gory. I really enjoyed this movie, and recommend it.More
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.
A real treat of four haunting stories, told by patients at a mental hospital. The visiting psychiatrist must deduce from the stories, which of the patients was a former doctor. Each story was creepy and stylish. There are some nice twists along the way. A classic anthology of British horror.More
