There is something about old buildings which I enjoy. They’re normally quite grand in size, have large wings which are out-of-bounds and the walls seem to want to tell you all their secrets. It gives me shivers up my spine just thinking about it. Throw in a couple of loonies and a few twisted doctors and you’ve got yourself the makings of a seriously creepy tale. ‘Stonehearst Asylum’ is just that and has a ‘Shutter Island’ feel to it as it too tells the story of a mental institution where everything is not as it seems on the surface. Directed by Brad Anderson – ‘The Machinist’ and ‘Session 9’ – the movie stars Michael Caine, Brendan Gleeson, Ben Kingsley and Kate Beckinsale. It looks like a nail-biting-edge-of-your-seat kind of movie.
You stay classy,
