R | | Horror, Thriller
A young psychiatric nurse goes to work at a lonesome asylum following a murder. There, she experiences varying degrees of torment from the patients.
The UK cinema version was cut by the BBFC to remove a closeup shot of an axe blow to a woman's body and the film later found itself on the banned list of video nasties. The cut version was released on the UK HHO label in 2005 and the full uncut version (now rated 15) was released on the Stax label later the same year.
Dr. Geraldine S. Masters:
Look at me. Do you see a saint, who cures the incurable? Supreme authority? Only the faithful live here. Only he who honors me. Faithful. Faith, before a saint!
Sam: Deanie, is she bad?
Dr. Geraldine S. Masters: Oh, she's sick! She's filthy! Take her upstairs. We'll correct her ...
When the people are chopping someone up with axes, one of the heads of the axes fall off.
The characters in the film are shown as the actor/actress' name appears at the end of the film, including the murdered characters!
Once listed as a video nasty, the UK Stax (Boulevard) and Elstree Hill DVDs are now 15 rated and uncut, restoring the original cinema cut to a shot of an axe hitting a woman's bloody body.
