Audience Reviews for Asylum

    Another classy portmanteau from Amicus. Not quite in the same league as Vault of Horror this still presents some enjoyable short stories all tied together with Robert Powell in an asylum visiting patients. It's a simple but clever plot device. Amicus were great at these type of films and there are a whole host of stars to see here. A horror classic.

    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 <i>Tales of Terror</i> and <i>Creepshow</i> then this might be right up your alley.
