I remember seeing Malcolm McDowell speak at Lindenwood College a couple of years ago. Someone in the audience asked him about some Dtv thriller he had starred in. He just gave a blank look and said “I don’t remember anything about that movie!”
Well, I doubt he’ll forget about Sanitarium because it looks so darn scary!
Sanitarium is an anthology that consists of three segments based on particular patients of a mental institution, and.will be having its World Premiere on March 1st at the Miami International Film Festival. It also stars Robert Englund, John Glover, Lou Diamond Phillips, Lacey Chabert, Chris Mulkey, and David Mazouz (young star of “Touch” on Fox). The always frightening Malcolm McDowell stars as Dr. Stenson, head psychiatrist presiding over a sanitarium where hardly anyone ever gets well. In tales of three of the sanitarium’s most disturbed patients, we soon see why. »

V/H/S, The ABC’S Of Death, The Theatre Bizarre, all three signs that the horror-anthology genre is definitely alive and booming. It’s a good way to showcase short form filmmaking and when they’re done well, anthologies are a lot fo fun to watch.
Next on the anthology slate, is the Bryan Ramirez, Kerry Valderrama and Bryan Oritz headed Sanitarium, which features a pretty impressive cast including Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange, Rz’S Halloween remake, Silent Night), Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger, need I say more?), Lou Diamond Phillips (The First Power, La Bamba) and Lacey Chabert (Mean Girls, The Ghost Of Goodnight Lane).

Why Watch? The trend of celebrities playing themselves is wearing a bit thin, but holy hell if Lou Diamond Phillips doesn’t nail it better than just about anyone here. In Lucy in the Sky with Diamond, John (John Patrick Jordan) laments losing his super hot girlfriend (Marlana Carter), and to make it worse, she’s dating Ldp now. Fortunately, the star of La Bamba has some advice for how John can move on. Things get bizarre, and that’s before they start talking about the Spirit World. This short from Joey Boukadakis is an Old Spice commercial distilled into narrative form. Pure comic perfection with syrup on top, Ldp is instantly up there with Nph and Chuck Norris (who, himself, is too cool for acronyms). In other words, Lou Diamond Phillips is legen–wait for it… What will it cost? Around 10 minutes. Skip Work. Watch More Short Films. »
