From Robert Bloch, the author of "Psycho", comes four chilling tales to drive you INSANE!

After an escape at an institution for the incurably insane, a young psychiatrist, Dr. Martin (Robert Powell) is sent to the asylum to interview the inmates to determine which one of the patients was once its director.

Nothing can prepare him for the sheer horror awaiting him, as the patients' tales behind their incarceration feature the living dead, maniacal dummies, inherited homicidal tendencies and murderous robotic toys.

Boasting a top-notch cast (including horror legend Peter Cushing and spunky Euro-beauties Britt Ekland and Charlotte Rampling) ASYLUM is "a trim little chiller with a moderate quota of blood and mayhem, polished performances and smooth direction" - VARIETY
