Exclusive Clip from 'Stonehearst Asylum,' a New Thriller from the Director of 'Session 9'

Oct 24, 2014

Some directors make a movie early in their career that is so good they earn your attention every single time they make a movie, no matter what it is or who is in it. If you're a horror fan, Brad Anderson is one of those people.

It's been 13 years since Session 9 came out, but it's still a superbly creepy, subtle film that continues to blow people away every time they discover it. And it's also precisely why we'll be excited about any time we see a "Directed by Brad Anderson" credit.

Stonehearst Asylum is Anderson's latest movie, and it stars Jim Sturgess as a medical school grad who takes a position at a mental institution where not everything is as it seems (which tends to be the case in most stories written by Edgar Allan Poe). It's got a pretty stellar cast that consists of Kate Beckinsale, Michael Caine, Brendan Gleeson, Jason Femyng and David Thewlis, and judging from the exclusive clip below, it's looking to build dread slowly by playing up the period-piece setting.

Check it out, and if you like what you see, Stonehearst Asylum is on VOD and in theaters starting today.
