Formerly called Eliza Graves, the Brad Anderson (The Call, Session 9) directed chiller Stonehearst Asylum has finally unleashed its first trailer, which you can view below.

Based on a short story by Edgar Allan Poe, the film boasts a great cast, a great idea but a bloody awful poster. The films title change has meant a new poster has been released, which is identical to the original poster with with a different name.

Directed by Brad Anderson (Session 9), the script for Eliza Graves was written some fifteen years ago by Joseph Gangemi, and he adapted it from the Edgar Allan Poe short story, The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether.

Starring in the film are Jim Sturgess, Michael Caine, Kate Beckinsale, David Thewlis, Brendan Gleeson and Ben Kingsley.


England, 1899. When young doctor Edward Newgate (Jim Sturgess) arrives at Stonehearst Asylum in search of an apprenticeship, he is warmly welcomed by superintendent Dr. Lamb (Ben Kingsley) and a mesmerizing woman named Eliza Graves (Kate Beckinsale). Edward is intrigued by Lamb’s modern methods of treating the insane…until a series of unusual events leads him to make a horrifying discovery, exposing Lamb’s utopia and pushing Edward to the limits of his conscience.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
