An inspired piece of film-making
6 November 2007 | by decolores31See all my reviews

A well-rounded documentary, Central State balances historical footage of this Indiana insane asylum with firsthand accounts by individuals who were employees and/or patients there. It also takes a compelling look at some of the Central State ghost stories that persist long after the closing of the institution in 1992. Add to this the camera techniques the director used to create unusual angles and perspectives and some spine-tingling EVPs, and you've got an up-close tour of the grounds past and present with a high creep factor tossed in for good measure. This is different in a good way than other documentary-style programs with a paranormal bent. Bravo!
