‘Sanitarium’ Red Band Trailer

The always frightening Malcom McDowell stars as Dr. Stenson, head psychiatrist presiding over a sanitarium where hardly anyone ever gets well. In tales of three of the sanitarium’s most disturbed patients, we soon see why. Robert Englund, John Glover, Jeremy Ray Valdez (La Mission) and Lou Diamond Phillips (La Bamba) star in this triptych anthology from Texas filmmakers Bryan Ramirez, Kerry Valderrama and Bryan Oritz. Superlatively shot, this creepy “Tales of the Crypt” style chiller reminds of us how the mind is sometimes humanity’s most powerful weapon. And beware the progressive shift in the ill, from the sane to the insane…darkness descends.
