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

Goofs

At the beginning of the film, it is stated that the year is 1899. However, at the dinner party, Newgate makes a joke about the character Mickey Finn's name and its association to "knockout drops." The real Mickey Finn, a Chicago bartender known for putting knockout drops in his patrons' drinks, was not caught in this activity until 1903 and the phrase did not enter common usage in America for at least another decade.

The movie is a good movie but thought I should mention this for the people who has made the trailer for this movie.

well, first you should put a spoiler alert at the beginning of the trailer because the whole movie is in this trailer. First of all the trailer shouldn't reveal who is the real villain here. I was watching the trailer and I felt sorry for watching it because after watching it I knew what's going on in the movie. This is not the first movie to use this concept, so it wasn't so hard for someone to figure it out after watching this trailer. I really wish if I didn't watch the trailer. :( so, that;s pretty much it and thought worth mentioning anyway...
