Editorial Reviews

SANITARIUM is an anthology that consists of three tales based on particular patients of a mental institution. Each tale begins with Dr. Stenson (Malcolm McDowell), the primary physician at the Sanitarium, commenting on the recent arrival of a new patient. As Dr. Stenson speaks, the individual’s story begins. SANITARIUM explores the different narratives of the insane patients – tales which led to their crazed states of minds. Starring Malcolm McDowell, Lou Diamond Phillips, John Glover, David Mazouz, Lacey Chabert, Chris Mulkey and Robert Englund.

Customer Reviews

They are stories that have been told before and offer nothing new.
Tim Janson
Just lame stories that I found hard to believe and way too drawn out for what little became of each story.
Route66Review
This anthology is truly a must have for anyone who loves eerie thrillers!

I really enjoyed this anthology. The little kid in the first part was so sad and creepy... And the dolls in the second one? Holy crap... Lou Diamond Phillips was *amazing* in the third episode. He's making a long overdue comeback! And Malcom MacDowell is the perfect host, playing the head doctor of the mental institution where the stars of our stories reside.

This is one badass psychological thriller! Actually, it's three! And I hope they make more!

Ah, the anthology! Sadly, it’s missing from all of the networks these days, especially as it was designed in its classic format. Great guest stars. Separate stories to air each week. Impressive direction and top-notch storytelling. All of that and much, much more. In fact, is it any wonder that the ultimate anthology program for the ages – Rod Serling’s THE TWILIGHT ZONE – still to this day ranks as one of the best-produced television programs ever? No doubt you’d be amazed as I have been in going back recently to watch some of those hours and half-hours. Don’t trouble yourself with the various re-imaginings and reboots that have taken place throughout the years; go back and watch the original. If you do, then you’ll maybe see what a little gem like SANITARIUM is a missed opportunity. I suspect (as I’ll detail below) that the driving force behind it was a similar venue – this one focusing on the mentally ill – and that could’ve been a wild ride, indeed.

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and/or character. If you’re the kind of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I’d encourage you to skip down to the last three paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you’re accepting of a few modest hints at ‘things to come,’ then read on …)

SANITARIUM is an anthology picture that combines three stories, all set against the backdrop of a rather creepy sanitarium. The first story involves a famous artist (played by John Glover) who’s struggling with a kind of agoraphobia-like condition; yet when he starts hearing voices coming from his art sculptures he’s tempted to do some very wicked things.

This is a collection of three stories done "Creepshow" style with Malcolm McDowell as the narrator.

The first episode involves an artist with a creepy doll menagerie. It had the right length and a good "Creepshow" style twist to it. Unfortunately the other two tales didn't met the quality of the first one. The second tale involve an introverted boy who is followed around by a demon...he is also being molested by his father, a theme that has been beat to death recently in the horror genre.

The third episode has Lou Diamond Phillips as a professor who is obsessed with the end of the world and the Mayan calender as he believes aliens are about to return so he builds a shelter in his back yard.

Things went down hill real fast after the first episode. Might do as a Redbox rental.

Format: DVD
Sanitarium is an anthology consisting of three stories of patients in an unnamed sanitarium, tied together by the onscreen narration by Malcolm McDowell who plays Dr. Stenson. The first tale features John Glover as a sculptor who is being drugged with hallucinogenics by his assistant in hope of getting him to sell his work. The drugs make Gustav think his clay sculptures are talking to him…and they are telling him to kill.

The second story tells the tale of a young man who was abused by his father as a child and conjures up a monster from his imagination to help him. In the final segment, Lou Diamond Phillips is a professor obsessed with the 2012 Mayan Apocalypse theory. He builds a bunker to survive the disaster but at what turns out to be a terrible cost.

Sanitarium features a solid cast that also includes Robert Englund and Lacey Chabert but the stories are just not that interesting. They are stories that have been told before and offer nothing new. Most disappointing is that the wraparound story with McDowell goes nowhere. He’s simply a doctor relating case histories and the script gives him little to do. The second story clouds the line between schizophrenia and the supernatural and its conclusion is left vague. While there’s certainly performances here to enjoy the entire package is lackluster.

Just not what i was expecting. It was OK.
The movie was clear to view. Just slow, low action.
I didn't want blood, but a little more action.

With a cast featuring Malcolm McDowell, Lou Diamond Phillips, Robert Englund and Lacey Chabert, I was hoping for a bit more than what I got with Sanitarium. The first story is creepy enough and probably the best. The second, which features the always lovely Ms. Chabert, is unfortunately not terribly scary. The final, a virtual one-man show for Lou Diamond Phillips, is worth watching for his acting, but doesn't really pay off in the end. None of the three stories is bad, but each one could have been a lot better.
