the nightmare of an insane asylum
25 May 2020 | by killercharmSee all my reviews

A young woman is imprisoned in the nightmare of an insane asylum for political reasons. It takes her most of the movie to piece together the horror of what was done to her. It's exciting if a little far-fetched, but, illegal committing is a little far-fetched to begin with. The horror of her ordeal is a well presented horror. Yeah!
