The drug "Risperdex" mentioned in the movie is reference to the real drug Risperdal. However, Risperdal is an antipsychotic, not an antidepressant. See more »
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 »
Clark (Joshua Leonard) is a young and idealistic new intern at a run-down and out-dated mental health facility. His aspirations for cleaning the place hit a snag when he butts heads with Dr. Franks (Lance Henrikson) who seems to not mind that the patients never seem to get any better. Shortly Clark begins seeing things and death and mayhem invade the reality of the "Madhouse". Together Clark and Sara must uncover who or what it is that stalks the asylum and survive the massacre.
"Madhouse" is a slick-looking production. Nicely filmed and directed it adds some nice visual pizazz to a relatively standard script. The three leads are all veterans of horror films and do very well in their parts. Excellent sound design and above-average photography make "Madhouse" a solid horror-thriller.
