AFTER awakening in a mental asylum, a patient plans an escape to freedom, but finds an even more disturbing, supernatural world on the outside, one that threatens to keep him trapped in madness forever.
Dwight is a patient at a mental institution with visions of a world that would seem fitting for such a situation. All around him are horrors that he recognizes as being triggers for insanity but seems aware that they are. He is in the care of Dr. Shaker, who for Dwight, is a ghastly undead-looking man with rotting flesh. His best friend is Van Gogh, a painter who sees darkness in his own work, so much so that he has stabbed out one of his eyes in hopes it would stop the terrors. Dwight longs to escape, yet when he does, things become even more so troubling, a world in more chaos than what he sees within the walls of his cell.

ILLAN elokuvaksi valikoitui kauhupätkä Asylum of Darkness. Todella hämmentävä elokuva. Välillä ei oikein voinut olla varma, ollaanko mielisairaalassa olevan Dwightin mielessä vai todellisuudessa - joka itsessään oli melkoisen hämmentävä. Tästä elokuvasta kaikessa hämmentäväisyydessään on vaikea sanoa oliko se hyvä vai huono. Katselun jälkeen tuli olo "mitä oikein tuli katsottua?" ■
