Storyline

A couple of days before 1899 Christmas, the Oxford new graduate Dr. Edward Newgate arrives at the Stonehearst Asylum to complete training for his specialty of asylum medicine. He is met by armed men who take him to Dr. Silas Lamb, who welcomes his help and takes him under his wing. Edward is shocked to see the methods that Dr Lamb uses to run this asylum. He becomes infatuated with Eliza Graves, one of the patients who is a lady of status and does not seem to belong. One night, Edward overhears a knocking from the bowels of the facility and is shocked to find that everything is not as it seems in this place and that his uneasy feelings may be justified. What will Edward Choose? Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

The music playing at the party (about 75 minutes into the film) is, appropriately, "Danse Macabre". See more »

Goofs

When Silas is about to light up Edwards mind with voltage and then reaches in Edwards pocket for the photo, the electrodes sparking denote Mickey had thrown the switch. But Silas places them in one hand. The sound of them colliding should have denoted the electrodes connected; lighting Silas up like a Christmas tree. See more »

loved it!
27 October 2014 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

I just saw this movie last night...I loved it.

I was a little skeptical at first, I'm not into this kind of movies, but I'm glad I watched it. It was never what I expected of it, I was sure that I know what will happens only to be blown away every single time.

As for the end, lol, it was funny and more than good.

I do not understand why it says that it will come out in November...because I've seen it last night and it's still October.

I gave it a 10, because it's been a long time since I've seen a movie where I can't figure it out what will happen in the next scene or how it will end.
