Movie Info

George, Max and Ricky are in a rock band. Between small gigs and rehearsals, they hope for their big breakthrough. In the meanwhile, someone has to pay the bills! So they work in the kitchen of a high security asylum. Good pay, minimum risk - they have no physical contact with the inmates. One night, just before dinner time, a big storm shuts down the security system, the doors open and the lunatics break loose. Help is on its way and should soon arrive. They just have to wait for it...and survive until then. -- (C) IFC

Precisely what the title implies, but it does get pretty rough.

A skillfully cobbled together little calling card of a film. If in the end it's a bit short on convincing payoff, its atmospheric spell should generally satisfy genre fans, and also augur good things for most involved.

...a seriously oppressive piece of work.

Audience Reviews for Asylum Blackout


English speaking remake of the same film by the same director. Tense, gripping, disturbing & terrifying.

Cheesy as hell but hey that's how most horror films are. I loved it. Watched it at least 10 different times. Main dude is clearly wearing a wig, and characters were very stereotyped but I think there was humor in that. I know people that would be super frightened by this movie. This is the type of scary movie I find myself looking for and I usually don't find ones like this.

Probably would have enjoyed this more if it weren't for the characters being thin and the film feeling so cheap. Scares are almost effective though. But the performances are good, so is the script and the plot. Mildly disturbing.
