I only watched this movie because it had the word "Asylum" in the title(Honestly - I just hoped it would have some Arkham Asylum type craziesin it). I did not have high expectations when I started watching thismovie...

Was I pleasantly surprised - it was a GREAT movie and I almost wantedto watch it again. I liked the characters and their stories, thesetting as well as well as the plot twist at the end.

I must however point out that the fact that the moviedescription/summary I read contained a key spoiler - this did not spoilthe movie for me, but I would have enjoyed the film even more had I notknown certain details.

I thoroughly enjoyed this fantastic movie and I was a little bit sadwhen it ended.

If you like period pieces, psychopathic characters, excellent actors,and plenty of atmospherics, then "Stonehearst Asylum" should be rightup your alley. Between its distinctly modern intelligence andrazor-sharp plotting, Director, Brad Anderson's clever contraptionalmost matches the heights of Gothic grandeur that keep Poe held inhigh esteem even today.

Anderson clearly takes delight in all the proceedings, which is one ofthe reasons the film feels fresh. While the film might lack some themacabre drama and dark humor of the original Edgar Allan Poe tale, itstill does a fine job of conveying a creepy, engaging thriller with abrilliant Gothic atmosphere and fine performances from its terrificensemble cast.

There's probably a brilliant, award-worthy film to be made about theinhumane way the medical practice dealt with the mentally ill in thepast. This one isn't it, but it is nonetheless a solid, sturdy piece ofentertainment. "Stonehearst Asylum" is an insane, Gothic thriller witha lot of chills, thrills, and fun to be had along the way.

I did enjoy this film. Its a nice piece of Gothic melodrama rather than a Gothic horror (as it's made out to be) not least because its concern is to humanise rather than exploit its subject matter. 19th (and 20th) century mental asylums were fascinating and terrifying places, and fortunately or unfortunately depending on your opinion the film doesn't really explore the worst horrors that took place in those institutions. Etc is one of the 'abuses' that used to be forced on people, but since its still in some circumstances used today (as it can be effective for treating depression amongst other things) its got a slightly ambiguous status as an 'horror' treatment (although I've met people who were profoundly angry at being forced to undergo it). Despite this - the film works very well, not least because we never know quite what to expect from Ben Kingsley and the always top notch David Thewlis as the villains of the piece, and to go with the melodrama there's some genuine villainy & tragedy to keep the narrative going not to mention a few twists and turns. I've no idea how this relates to the tale by Edgar Allen Poe, but the director / writers have managed to balance the sense you get when reading a Wilkie Collins novel or other 19th century melodrama with the (slightly) more critical perspective we have today, although having said that the idea of a therapeutic community - an idea implicit in much of the film - remains quite controversial even today, where drug treatments as a first line of intervention remain the norm rather than the exception. Combined with this is the equally perhaps more controversial idea that sanity is a function of the society we live in - something which is definitely true to some extent - as in the example of hysteria the film addresses - but to what extent is far more controversial? The solution conjured at the end may or may not be if you like a psychotic departure from reality depending on your opinion on the nature of mental illness. Overall then a very nice little film, with a great cast, and good pacing.
