Stonehearst Asylum (2014) Review:

Somehow I have been unaware of this movie until one year after its release, it seems that most website failed to mention it as one of 2014’s highlight, and I don’t remember seeing it discussed in any forums. Anyhow, Stoneheast Asylum is one of the most overlooked horror movies of 2014.

I have always liked movie set in an asylum, with American Horror Story: Asylum and Asylum Blackout featuring as personal favorites. Similarly, Stonehearst Asylum features a whole range of maniacs looked up in a creepy hospital – with plenty of torture and dirty things happening.

This adaptation of an E.A. Poe’s novel by the director of The Machinist and The CallStoneheast Asylumcombines a huge cast (Kate Beckingsale, Ben Kingsley, Michael Caine) and a great story. Watching that movie, you’re in for a ride full of surprises. I am not claiming that the story is outstanding, but it is great, and the movie is filled with such good characters that the overall 112 minutes fly in no time. The gothic asylum settings are equally splendid, and quite creepy too. There simply isn’t any major flaw to that movie. Just watch it.


One last thing…. Do not watch the trailer … it just spoils a huge part of the movie. Trust me, it’s a more than just a decent watch.
