Rating:
PG

Asylum is a 1972 horror film written by Robert Bloch, the mastermind writer behind Alfred Hitchcock's horror classic Psycho. Asylum follows Dr. Martin (played by Robert Powell), a physician who visits a secluded insane asylum for a job interview. The position for head doctor of the asylum has been recently vacated by Dr. Starr, who suffered a mental collapse. While the position is a prestigious one, Dr. Martin begins noticing unsettling aspects of the grim hospital. Dr. Lionel Rutherford, who runs the asylum, interviews the young doctor. Rutherford sits in a wheelchair, which he's needed since he was attacked by one of the inmates. Rutherford designs an unconventional test to determine Martin's aptitude for the work. Martin will meet with four of the inmates and determine which one is the hospital's former head doctor, Dr. Starr. The bulk of the film takes place in four vignettes, each focusing on the story of a different lunatic, leading up to a shocking conclusion about the true nature of the Asylum.
