A famous psychiatrist (Ty Adams) takes on the job of trying to cure patients at the Sedah State Hospital, run by its folksy doctor (Sam Delazo). All this takes a strange turn when a mysterious patient (Satan, he calls himself) enters the Hospital seeking help. Or is it just help that he wants? Written by
Jeremy Leven wrote the screenplay for this movie. This movie is loosely based on his novel, Satan: His Psychotherapy and cure by the unfortunate Dr. Kassler, J.S.P.S. Besides featuring the devil and a shrink, the only real similarities are the names. The names are the same, but they play completely different parts. See more »

This film has a weird quality to it. It's not filled with roller coaster intensity and has a pretty casual pace but it's very creative and ultimately clever. I like being thrown for a loop and generally, I can almost always see these things coming but that was not the case with this film.
It's low budget with good acting and some familiar faces. The concept is simple. Controversial psychiatrist with a checkered past is recruited to an asylum to help the incurable try to find stability. Being a hot shot, he thinks he can cure them all. But the premise gets strange, as you can imagine based on that scenario, and we find out repeatedly, people aren't what or who they seem.
It's a difficult movie to talk about without giving away the plot and twists. This is geared towards those who like bizarre thriller movies with a bit of horror or paranormal element to the plot. I like weird but intelligent and this delivers. Well written, well directed and well acted. It's worth watching at least a couple times as I'm sure there is a lot of abstract imagery hidden in the scenes as well as clues to what exactly is in fact taking place. Low budget with a simple but clever concept that really delivers.
