Format: DVD
Madhouse proved to be quite a pleasant surprise for this horror fan. I really liked a lot of what first-time writer-director (not to mention former horror actor) William Butler tried to do here. It was also something of a kick to see Joshua Leonard of The Blair Witch Project fame once again (he's left the woods outside Burkittsville far behind, trading up to a rather geeky new look for this film). There's a fair share of gore, a nicely claustrophobic feel to the whole experience, quite effective ghostly manifestations, some wickedly deft plot twists, and a really cool, darkly surreal opening montage to start things out on the right foot. Jordan Ladd is a delight, and the intimidating presence of Lance Henriksen is put to pretty good use. I also found the plot to be surprisingly complex and methodically laid out. I for one had my expectations altered a time or two when the final scenes rolled around. Some people talk about the ending being obvious (I disagree) or the film trying to do too much, but Madhouse, in my opinion, succeeds admirably in setting itself apart from other lunatic asylum-based horror films. This thing has a look and feel all its own, and I honestly don't see how any horror fan could not enjoy this film.
Joshua Leonard plays Clark Stephens, a super-smart student doing his internship at a mental institution. He is sort of a know-it-all who is less than impressed by the condition of Cunningham Hall and the way its patients are treated. The man in charge, Dr. Franks (Henriksen) doesn't really care about making improvements, though; as a matter of fact, he doesn't even seem to care about curing anybody. The other two doctors are friendly enough, but the head nurse is something of a battleaxe.

This is an excellent ghost/horror mystery that takes place in a mental hospital. Joshua Leonard is a young intern who comes to work at the hospital. He quickly sees that things are not quite right. As he is investigating the strange going-ons he starts to see the ghost of a young boy. He is given conflicting stories. The patients are considered to be very bad off, although some seem very sane.

I loved the visual effects, both in the beginning and later on during the tale. Excellent use of shadows and lighting coupled with a good soundtrack. The acting was good. The plot tells you something is wrong and there must be a twist.

Brief sex, nudity and f-bomb.

Madhouse is the story of a young student psychiatrist who turns up for his internship at an asylum only to find it badly run down due to an extreme case of mismanagement. As he tries to make changes he runs into major obstacles in the form of the management, although he does however begin to form relationships with staff and patients. He begins seeing a small child running around the wings of the asylum, a possibility denied by the other staff. But then begin the sadistic deaths of members of staff, and suspecting one of the patients he begins to try and get deeper into their minds to find out what is really going on.
The plot of Madhouse is deliciously dark and twisted. The opening scene gives a perfect introduction to the chaos and the uncertainty of people not being who they seem, a theme which is to reoccur throughout.
The scenes set in the dark basement level are very scary and very well done, the assortment of psycopathic characters left to rot in this top security area dark and hellish, but also apparently knowing more than they're letting on.
With spooky scenes shown from the patients perspective as well as the interns, and suspicion and doubt casting its wide net over many characters, Madhouse is a great film with a dark plot and some nasty and interesting twists.

Format: DVD
Straight to DVD fare it may be, but it has some merit as a spooker to make it worth spending time with. Plot finds Joshua Leonard as a psychiatric intern who arrives at Cunningham Hall Mental Facility and quickly finds that all is not as it seems.

It's hardly an original concept, that of a mental asylum housing something sinister, either supernatural or of human origin, but director and co-writer William Butler has a good feel for a chilly atmosphere, while he's not scrimping on the shocks and terrifying imagery either.

The asylum is a suitably depressing place, unhealthily cold to look at and the patients milling about the place are the requisite hot-pot of sad cases and the disturbed. Then there is the basement ward, of course, where the extreme cases are kept in cells, and it looks like something straight out of Hades.

Jordan Ladd is on hand for eye candy and romantic thread duties, and Lance Henriksen adds his horror weight to the role of Governor of Cunningham Hall. It's all very competently performed and constructed, the screenplay full of killings, dark corridor peril, secrets and a curveball twist thrown in as well.

It doesn't push any boundaries, so searching for anything new here will only end up in disappointment. Yet it's stylish and creepy enough to warrant a night in with the lights turned off. 6/10
