There is little new here, and that does lessen the suspense to a certain degree, but there is more to enjoy that to hate. The acting is above average for a film like this, it looks good, there is a creepy atmosphere present throughout most of the film, and the villain and death scenes are good enough to hold your attention. It goes without saying the characters are not exactly well-developed, but if that was a concern, surely you wouldn't be considering watching this. It's passable evening entertainment that, quite frankly, is still better than recent horror at the theater, and it's more than worth a rental.
Overall, the film isn't a bad horror film, just a bit unoriginal - but what horror film these days really breaks new ground? While watching this film, I couldn't help but think of "Nightmare on Elm Street 3," which takes place in a mental institute. The plots are very similar. The acting is typical horror movie level acting. While not original, the setting provides some creepy elements. There are some bloody scenes and moments where you'll cringe, but the film lacks the over-the-top level of violence that seems to be the trend, as seen in movies like "Saw" and "Hostel." If you're into horror films, and if you liked "Nightmare on Elm Street 3," then check this movie out. It's quite good when compared to the hordes of horror films that are getting churned out lately, most of which aren't even worth watching.
It could be just a problem with how the panasonic made dvd players work though, as the particular blockbuster I went to also had a panasonic made DVD player though of a different model.
The movie does this: it puts up a menu screen informing the viewer that the dvd exceeds the rating limit on the dvd player (even if you have no limit set) it does ask if the viewer would like to bypass the lockout, but doesn't actually allow you to select yes or no, or press the enter button on the selection and it freezes the player.
I sent a comment to email@example.com but it is the website author as I couldn't find an email address for consumer complaints. But I thought I'd let anyone here at amazon know if they have a panasonic player, it may not work for you. They did tell me at blockbuster that I was the first person to bring the issue up, but the movie just came out 5 days ago :)
This movie was a joke.

I really like Asylum. I have watched it many times and it spooks me every time I watch it. It is about 6 college students who are living in a campus dorm that used to be a Asylum... Read morePublished on June 6, 2013 by Marlene
