Movie Info

In this high-tension thriller, a notorious serial killer called "The Trasher" has been captured, and has been locked up in an unusual high-tech mental institution for the criminally insane. However, the female psychiatrist who has been attempting to learn the killer's secrets is suddenly in a position to find out more than she ever wanted to know about him when she finds herself locked up in the asylum after hours, with the Trasher after her trail, and her only ally is a floor-sweeper who may actually be a fellow inmate. Dark Asylum stars Judd Nelson, Paulina Porizkova, and Larry Drake.

Audience Reviews for Dark Asylum


Surprisingly intelligent, a cable favourite. Lots of deaths and gore, the killer looked scary (He's bald) The first scene in the sewer was scary, not a bad B-movie to say the least.

An OK horror flick with descent scares.

Worst piece of shit I have ever seen in my life. Sucks more then Blair Witch 2 and Nine Lives...COMBINED. Terrible acting, illogical plot line that has empty holes everywhere within itself, not a single scary scene, etc etc. This movie gives absolutely no scares what-so-ever. I could have spend an hour and 40mins of my life doing some productive, but instead I got stuck with this garbage. /rage
