Just a bad movie, period
2.5/5. It takes a while to get going, but the last half hour is a lot of fun with some really great gore. The acting is fine. The biggest problem is the slow start.
Probably the best film set in an asylum I've seen!
The plot of "Insanitarium" is routine and silly with tons of corny one-liners, but this has to be one of the goriest horror films....this movie has enough goods to recommend it for fans of blood-drenched horror...
One of the Best horror movies I've watched in awhile, I highly recommend it.
So awful. Sooo so awful. Borrowed this movie from a friend and now I have to question his taste in movies.
Jesse Metcalf (playing Jack) gets himself Institutionalized purposely to rescue his sister, Lily (played by Kiele Sanchez who played the HATED Nikki on Lost) While Peter Stormare (Abruzie of Prison Break fame) plays (crazy) Dr. Gianetti who is conducting experiments on his patients that turns them into flesh eaters. Basically think 28 days later (probably made for Sci-Fi network. It's not bad like most of them this is actually decent C
I actually found this movie to be very under-rated. If you consider that it was a cheap movie, it's quite good. Worth a watch.
Insanitarium features considerably more acting talent that your average straight-to-video horror schlock. Does contain some boobs and gratuitious amount of gore, though---the hallmarks of horror B-movies. It's above average for it's genre, but don't expect to be scared or find any deep plot elements.
Over-the-top (but poorly directed) gore scenes and Peter Stormares worst performance since Armageddon - not bad at all!
