“Working with the mentally disturbed... can lead to a breakdown.”
Asylum is a 1972 British anthology horror film made by Amicus Productions. The film was directed by Roy Ward Baker which follows a young psychiatrist who interviews four inmates in a mental asylum to satisfy a requirement for employment.
One of the anthologies made by the iconic Amicus Productions who brought us Tales From The Crypt, Asylum is a decent little film that, whilst it didn’t completely captivate my attention throughout, does have some interesting segments, especially since they were written by Psycho scribe Robert Bloch.
The cast are all great too and it was particularly fun seeing Peter Cushing and Britt Ekland in roles here.
I might need to give Asylum another watch but as it stands, it gets a solid 3/5 from me.
