Trivia

Riverview Hospital, a large mental health facility used as the main set in the season 1 episode Asylum, has also substituted for a prison, a regular hospital, and an apartment building on different episodes of the show. This is evidenced by seeing the same distinctive staircase in different episodes. See more »

Goofs

As they walk down a corridor, they hear something and turn round quickly. The corridor they just walked through was almost totally empty when they walked down it, but is now littered with screens and trollies that they would have had trouble walking around. See more »

Spend the Night in the South Wing, and the Spirits Drive You Crazy
10 December 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Rockford, Illinois, while investigating possible trespassers in the South Wing of the Roosevelt Hospital, two policemen find a group of teenagers drinking in the place. One of the policeman drives insane and kills his wife, committing suicide immediately after. Dean receives a message in his cellular with the coordinates of the asylum, and drives with Sam to the place. The brothers disclose that the patients riot against the director, Dr. Ellicott, who conducted painful and cruel experiments with the patients and his body has never been found. Further, that there is a local legend that any person that spend the night in the asylum, the spirits drive he or she crazy. Together with Kat and Gavin, a young couple that is trapped in the Asylum, Dean and Sam spend the night in the cellar of the South Wing trying to find the hidden body of Dr. Ellicott to burn it and destroy the fiend.

"Asylum" is another scary episode of "Supernatural", where the two brothers help a young couple. There are many jokes with famous movies and characters along the story, in a good balance of horror and comedy. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Asilo" (" Asylum")
