Trivia

The drug "Risperdex" mentioned in the movie is reference to the real drug Risperdal. However, Risperdal is an antipsychotic, not an antidepressant. See more »

Goofs

When Clark is first in Dr. Franks office, he looks over the books on the shelf. One of them is labeled "Psychoterapy Pratctices" by Dr. Jess Williams." Obviously it should be spelled "Psychotherapy Practices." See more »

Great Unknown Horror B-Movie
5 June 2005 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The psychiatric intern Clark Stevens (Joshua Leonanrd) comes to Cunningham Hall, a mental healthy facility administrated by Dr. Franks (Lance Henriksen), for a training period before his graduation in medical college. He gets close to the resident Sara (Jordan Ladd) and to Ben London, a dangerous patient lodged in cell 44 in the basement of the clinic. Clark becomes intrigued with a boy, who seems to be a ghost, and finds that Dr. Franks does not use real medication in the patients. A further investigation shows hidden dark secrets in the clinic.

"Madhouse" is an unknown low-budget movie with a surprisingly great gory story. The direction is sharp, the screenplay is very well tied up and in the end it is a worthwhile horror movie, highly recommended to be discovered by fans of this genre. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "A Casa dos Horrores" ("The House of the Horrors")
