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.

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.

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.

Typical B grade horror movie. Starts with a doctor in a mental hospital remembering his worst cases. The movie is basically 3 or 4 shorts stories. Worth the money if you feel like just spending a Friday night at home. Several big name actors in this film

That's about all I could muster for this ho-hum movie----> Meh. It wasn't awful, but it wasntanything near enjoyable either. It was just kind of there. Happy it was only a rental and not a full purchase.

The first story was kind of interesting, but the other were so-so...it definitely was not scary, which was disappointing. From what I was reading on the rating I thought I would need to have the lights on, but...alas...no. I do not recommend this unless want a slow so-so weird horror film.
