Critic Reviews of "Stonehearst Asylum"Time OutApril 20, 2015
It's 'Shutter Island' in the Scottish Highlands with this initially intriguing, ultimately depressing Victorian-era madhouse drama.RogerEbert.comOctober 24, 2014
It may not be his worst film overall, but "Stonehearst" is Anderson's flattest film, a disappointingly shallow affair that wastes an opportunity to breathe life into a timeless Edgar Allen Poe short story.Los Angeles TimesOctober 23, 2014
On the surface, Anderson seems to have all the necessary pieces for a surreal psycho pop. But the fear factor eludes him, leaving "Stonehearst Asylum" more insipid than insane.Seattle TimesOctober 23, 2014
All involved deserve better, particularly Poe.New York TimesOctober 23, 2014
Shockingly flabby ...New York Daily NewsOctober 23, 2014
If you accept the grandly Gothic insanity here, there's a lot of fun to be had.The Straits Times (Singapore)September 13, 2016
The best way to enjoy the film is to know as little about it as possible and let Anderson take you on a dark and Gothic thrill ride.SciFiNowJune 26, 2015
Stonehearst Asylum sets itself apart thanks to its source material -- it draws heavily from an Edgar Allan Poe short story -- and its embracing of the Hammer horror aesthetic in all its schlocky glory.Eye for FilmJune 25, 2015
Tom Yatsko's beautifully flexible cinematography, together with strong set design, helps to capture the transient character of the era, adding depth and energy to Joe Gangemi's script.Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)May 25, 2015
This fin-de-siècle tale reveals the nastinesses of Victorian pseudo-sciences and psychiatry, devilishly dwelling on the distinctions between safehouse and jail, cure and torment. It also unveils the era's jittery repression of women and their sexuality.ScotsmanApril 26, 2015
Michael Caine, Ben Kingsley and a host of other Brit thesps ham it up, Hammer-style, but Brad Anderson's baggy direction hampers any enjoyment.
