Director:
Brad Anderson
Writers:
Joe Gangemi (screenplay), Edgar Allan Poe (based on a short story by)
Based very loosely on Edgar Allan Poe’s short story, ‘The System of Dr Tarr and Professor Fether’, Stonehearst Asylum proved to this skeptical viewer its worth as a darkly humorous gem of cinema, replete with twists and turns that will certainly send shivers down the spine of the most seasoned of horror aficionados. Blood and gore need not apply here, however. The atmosphere which set the stage for the psychological mind-twists that occured throughout, along with a supremely proficient cast of actors who were nothing less than mesmerizing in their believability, are the ingredients that qualify this as the consummate gothic horror film – and whilst it deviated considerably from ‘Tarr and Fether’, was a fitting tribute to the author and his work.
