The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Asylum (1972)

Starring: Peter Cushing, Brit Ekland, Herbert Lom, Charlotte Rampling, Patrick Magee
Director: Roy Ward Baker

A new doctor is making rounds at an insane asylum and hears the supernatural tales of four patients.

My Take:
The movie has four good segments and a decent wrap around story, all taken from Robert Bloch short stories, but none really stand out over the others. Great acting and tight direction make this an enjoyable film.

Rating: In the middle (but darn fun)
