| Great to meet some old friends...
While this film will not change the world, it must be said that for fans of 1960's and 70's British psychological horror/thrillers it should give them a warm glow of recognition. The plot itself owes a little to Deep Red but the overriding feeling is of being transported back 35 years to when the UK could produce this type of movie effortlessly every week.

The Asylum's main draw card is of course, its cast. Two Pitts for your money (including Ingrid, chewing up the scenery as usual, but making it work to the film's advantage)Patrick Mower (excellent performance) and the legend that is Robin Askwith. The director, John Stewart, assures us that the cast were picked on merit, rather than reputation. However, a quick look at his influences (The Sorcerers, Witchfinder General) would indicate that it was all too much of a coincidence. Add a former Doctor Who in a lively cameo and what are you waiting for?

If you love the type of film described, and want to have it confirmed that England can still make these films well then I am preaching to the converted. If you aren't then give this a try. I hope you are pleasantly surprised...
