Writer/director John Stewart pays tribute to the golden age of British horror -- when Hammer Films and Amicus Productions ruled the grind-houses -- in this classically styled frightfest. Jenny (Steffanie Pitt) is a young woman who has been having horrible nightmares in which she revisits the murder of her mother when she was only six years old. Desperate to free herself from her traumatic past, Jenny and her boyfriend William (Nick Waring) visit the mental institution that Jenny's father (Patrick Mower) oversaw when she was a child. But Jenny soon discovers her dreams were prescient in a way she never imagined, as a killer begins to lay waste to the asylum's inmates and staff. The Asylum's supporting cast includes Ingrid Pitt, who starred in a number of classic British horror films and is also the mother of leading lady Steffanie Pitt.
