Editorial Reviews

What should have been just another night on the job turns into a desperate fight for survival for three friends when the inmates of a high security asylum break free from their cells. Rock musicians George, Max and Ricky work in the kitchen at the local asylum to make ends meet - the pay is good and they're at minimal risk, having no direct contact with the inmates. One night, just before dinner time, a storm shuts down the security system and the doors to all the cells open, letting the lunatics loose. Outnumbered and almost defenseless in the dark, the trio must find a way to survive until help arrives. A nerve-shattering thriller, ASYLUM BLACKOUT is a terrifying plunge into darkness where the things that go bump in the night become a very real threat.

Customer Reviews

An excellent thriller with just a dash of good horror.
HorrorJunkie
The film has potential for a more unnerving horror, but to create one you need a set-up that is more credible and intriguing.
Tsuyoshi
Maybe some spoilers, I'm vague on this like the end of the movie is vague.

Asylum Blackout

For the first hour I could see giving this a 5-star rating. but a little after an hour it changes and then fails. First hour plus was a tight story where a wanna-be rock group has their day job as cooks in a high security insane asylum. There's good characterization, filming, acting, pass, everything. Even through the beginning of the black out. Then, it seems, the writer couldn't figure where to go [or maybe he/she died and an inept person took over]. So, for a few minutes he/she said: "torture film! Yeah, that's the ticket." But then it dawned on him/her: "I don't want to make a torture film." By this time they'd killed off too many people. Thus the finish is... [wait for it]... "I can't process this, that crazy man got in my brain." And then it should have finished with Alice Cooper singing: "We're all crazy. Crazy, crazy, ...crazy" [From Alice's album: "From the inside"]
Anyhow, I could see inviting a bunch of friends over, at an hour stopping the film, [not talking about it, yet], and going out to eat. After the meal discussing what has taken place and where it should go. Go back watch the rest and then discuss how they failed and try to answer: "WHY?!" The first hour is really good.

Black comedy/torture porn indie 'Asylum Blackout' (2011) boasts decent production values, a workable horror concept (complete with spooky setting and gallons of blood), and surprisingly credible performances. Where it fails, though, is in the technical details, and there it fails pretty badly: bad lighting, bad editing, bad writing (whether it's overwritten or underwritten to the point of obscurity can be debated, but ultimately is irrelevant). All sorts of potential mood-setting time at the outset is wasted on establishing the fact that our heroes-- a singularly luckless foursome working as kitchen staff in a home for the criminally insane-- are mates in a garage band of some kind (we never get to hear more than a few notes of the noise they produce), trying in their spare time to cut a demo record. How does this dovetail with the plot, you ask? It doesn't. Probably just a conceit of the writer, producer, director or one of their girlfriends, so feel free to make a snack during most of act one. The remainder of the film, at its best moments, plays out like 'Assault on Precinct 13' (1976) meets 'Day of the Dead' (1985) with a little mind-bending 'Brain Dead' (1990) peppered in. Unfortunately it's shot like 'Alien 3,' only instead of interchangeable extraterrestrials whizzing by the camera in near-total darkness, they're human characters that presumably need to be differentiated in order for us to understand who's killing and who's dying. Then there's the script, which is, thankfully, minimalist, but gives rather a half-hearted attempt at 'Die Hard' style survivalist technique (imagine the cast of 'Dazed and Confused' filling John McLane's shoes here), then quickly gives up, perhaps knowing that in the end everyone winds up in the bughouse.Read more ›

It's true that I love Asylum Blackout, but it's not without several very noticeable faults. I'm sure I'm forgetting several in my review. For one, it takes forever for the movie to get going and once it *does* get going, it feels like it ends way too soon. Also, the employees that work at the asylum are suspiciously unarmed and defenseless for some bizarre reason, which doesn't make sense given the psychotic nature of the inmates. This also doesn't make sense since the guys that work there are more like clueless punks only there to cook meals for the inmates, at least, that's the initial impression. This makes you think it's not necessary to really care about their fate when the time comes (and trust me, you know it's coming- it's only a matter of when).

I mean *every single one* of the dangerous criminals are completely psychotic and beyond the point of being unreasonable, so they obviously have nothing to lose. Under these conditions, you'd need the best kind of protection available to assure your safety but... apparently not in this asylum. Strange.

Obviously the inmates were made so psychotic for the purpose of delivering a suspense/horror movie. Regardless of these issues, the final 30 minutes is pretty darn entertaining. This is when the employees basically spend their time tucking and hiding under tables and inside storage rooms, and anywhere they can just to escape the army of crazy criminals released after a blackout locks everyone inside. These bad boys are motivated to destroy as much of the asylum as possible... and that's another flaw. Wouldn't you want to capture and kill the employees if you're an asylum? After all, you'd want to get rid of anything that could possibly stand in the way of your persuit of escaping.

I fell asleep with cable tv on and when I woke, this movie was on the screen, in one
of it's most horrific moments. I changed the channel FAST and then checked to see the title so that I would never inadvertently watch it.

Creepy.....too creepy for me.

So, if you're reading this, you're looking for horror. This might be right up your alley.
