Storyline

In 1989, in Washington, the friends George, Max and Ricky are aspirant musicians that play in a band in their leisure time. They work as cooks in the Sans Asylum to earn money to pay their bills, including renting a studio to record their songs. The asylum is located in an isolated area and is monitored by a team led by the security guard J.B. The deranged inmates are criminals and they take pills to stay calm. One day, George has a concert during the night but J.B. asks him to arrive early in the morning to receive the supplies for the kitchen. George leaves his girlfriend Lynn without sleeping and heads to the asylum. While he is preparing the meals for the insane inmates with his colleagues, there is a storm and a power outage in the area and the monitoring system fails. With the mental hospital in the darkness, the inmates led by the cruel Harry Green attack the guards and staff. George and the other kitchen workers hide from the horde of violent madmen. Will they survive? Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Meh..Average Horror yarn
8 May 2012 | by (yourhdd') – See all my reviews

I just finished watching Asylum Blackout. After seeing the IMDb rating I have to say I was expecting a lot more then what I got. I mean we had an Asylum with inmates on the loose, decent acting and production, how could this go wrong?

I don't know, but the movie just didn't do it for me. Some call it torture porn, whatever its called a bunch of people torturing other people just isn't enough to carry a storyline anymore. Maybe for some, but not for a seasoned horror fan like myself.

That doesn't make it a bad movie though, quite the contrary. This movie will find its audience and its good and high quality for what it is. It has some good gore and some sadistic scenes, but to me it lacks rhyme and/or reason. I guess some could argue that its in an asylum with a bunch of nuts and there doesn't have to be rhyme or reason, but I disagree as this is still a movie. There should have been some side stories, something to keep the audience involved and interested, but there wasn't and the so called twist? Ill just say unfortunately it fell short with me.

6/10 stars. Great acting, Great production, decent gory shots, but a weak script and sad storyline with not much going on besides.

I would recommend this movie to those who like a good torture porn flick.
