Great acting from an impressive cast. Yes the story is based on a Poe story, but instead of finding it eerie I found myself laughing out loud at some parts,(maybe that's just me). If you haven't seen the trailer then all the better, a few twists and turns become apparent about 30mins into the film. But there is more to it so don't feel disappointed. In general an entertaining film about lunatics and an asylum, set in a Gothic era, the cast really do bring a lot to this film. Ben Kingsley imparticular brings so much to his character. I give it a good 7.5 out of 10
An Oxford graduate takes up a job in a mental asylum, only to discover that the "revolutionary" new treatments are inhumane, and that there is more going on than meets the eye.
