Review: Bridging the lines of sanity and insanity, Asylum opens the door to the unknown. Challenging you to decide what is truly reality and what is the inner workings of a psychotic mind.
When Dan enters a summer program at New Hampshire College Prep, he thinks all his social problems are solved. A summer program primarily built on the social quirks of academic achievers seems like the perfect answer. Even though, waiting in the wings of an old asylum, dark secrets of a haunted past wait for the right students to unearth its mystery.
Upon arrival, Dan quickly makes friends with the beautiful and instantly popular Abby, as well as her sidekick and friend extraordinaire, Jordan. Life can’t get any better until the true past of New Hampshire College Prep dorm, is uncovered.
Once a psychiatric hospital for the truly insane, the crumbling Brookline Asylum is now the dorm they will call home for the next six weeks. Soon the asylum’s hidden secrets find a way to creep up to the surface, as the three friends take it upon themselves to discover more about the asylum’s past. Brookline was not only a famous hospital for housing notorious serial killers, but one known for the horrid experiments that were performed on their patients. From lobotomies to electrocutions, as well as illegal operating room performances, Brookline’s secrets lay deeper than the hidden basement itself.
Visions start to cloud Dan’s mind as it fills with the horrific images of those that once inhabited the asylum. Once a horrific site, where operating room instruments sat by every stretcher and cement floors were coated with pools of blood. Bolted chains lined the walls coated in rust and blood, all waiting for their next patient. All too soon, the past and the present collide and Dan is no longer able to decipher the difference between them. Is the old Asylum trying to tell him something, or is Dan bridging the lines of insanity himself?
All too soon, Dan and his friends find themselves quickly thrust into the middle of the haunting mystery that the asylum doesn’t want hidden.
Without warning, Dan quickly realizes he is getting too close, between his memory lapses and the images of the living days at the asylum, Dan can’t tell if he is losing his mind, or if the asylum is truly haunted. Causing a new mystery to surface, are all of them really there by happenstance, or is there a tie that brings them to live within the asylum once more?
A harrowing tale of past and present, sanity and insanity, Asylum thrusts you beneath the surface of a person hanging on the edge of reality. Laden with disturbing and haunting pictures of real asylums, and its patients, you can’t help but be pulled under is psychotic web.
