Horror films have recently found a new way to scare, by delivering bite-sized servings of terror. Recent successes like “V/H/S” and “The ABCs Of Death” have shown filmmakers getting creative within a smaller format, and the upcoming “Sanitarium” promises genre fans another dose of thrills in a contained package.
Directors Bryan Ramirez, Kerry Valderrama and Bryan Oritz are behind this latest effort, which presents a triptych of stories all set within a sanitarium, with each segment zeroing in on a different patient. Malcolm McDowell leads the cast, which also includes horror fave Robert Englund, Lacey Chabert, Lou Diamond Phillips, John Glover and more. The exclusive red band trailer below gives a nice preview of the madness to come in the picture, and in case you’re wondering, the song in the second half is “Coyote” by Pop Pistol.
“Sanitarium” will have its World Premiere on March 1st at the Miami International Film Festival. Check out the trailer and images from the film below.
