Its definitely worth checking out, and Sturgess, Beckinsale, Kingsley and Caine are always worth watching.
No scenery is left unchewed in this overripe Poe inspired bughouse chiller.
Youll watch this supremely entertaining danse macabre with the broadest of connoisseurial smiles.

Mark Reviews Movies
The lines between madness and sanity become increasingly blurred in a gothic romp filled with plot twists.
It has the ingredients for a lurid and entertaining trip to the dark side.
Review Our Score by Stephen Carty An isolated lunatic asylum is the setting for this gothic, twist laden mystery thriller.
But the scare, that terror of being locked away and at the mercy of the barbaric remedies used at the time to treat mental ails, never takes hold.

The result is polished, watchable and reasonably energetic and still feels like a going through the motions salvage job.
But Newgate thinks theres something fishy about the place, and indeed there is.

While its intentions were probably high minded, the only reaction Stonehearst Asylum is likely to induce is hoots of derisive laughter.

But the plot never builds much tension and is more intriguing on changing attitudes to mental illness than as a twisted slice of grand guignol.
Its nicely designed and photographed, but the movie careens from absurd comic overstatement to something darker and more troubling.
Sadly many critics have failed to give it its due, but its now gaining popularity thanks to good word of mouth, and one hopes it will be properly appr ..
Eye For Film
Does a fine job of balancing dark humor, creepy vibes, and outright melodrama and what a cool cast, right
Not even the underused presences of Michael Caine and Brendan Gleeson can class things up.
Red Eye Chicago
A missed opportunity, but not without the odd entertaining manic episode.
Anderson has made a career out of and earned admirers for tackling genre subjects with his brown colour palettes and ensemble casts of hale UK actors.

Stonehearst Asylum is instead an unusually reflective entertainment.
The Arts Desk
Theres probably a brilliant, award worthy film to be made about the inhumane way the medical practice dealt with the mentally ill in the past. This on ..
Andersons consistent refusal to take the easy way out elevates this film above the delightfully dark trifles that preceded it.
Andersons tepid gothic drama is inspired by Poe, meaning the movie is under no obligation to reflect its source beyond the title.
Gore and violence are passed over for a constant feeling of dread which surrounds our heroes, giving Stonehearst Asylum the feel of an old fashioned H ..
Under The Radar Mag
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.
Subtle it is not, but it is a more polished and entertaining asylum based drama from Scorsese.
As shown in his debut The Machinist and the surprisingly decent Halle Berry thriller The Call, director Anderson has a good eye for a murky mystery.
Not a horror movie per se, but still containing horror elements, Stonehearst Asylum is a well made, well acted tale that could find an audience among ..
Daily Film Fix
And you can try to put your stamp on the material, but sometimes it resists an authorial stamp (or, if its TV, demands a directors visual flourishes t ..
It trots out one final gotcha in the films final moments, a decidedly unnecessary touch.
Hollywood Into To
As expected, the film is much more embellished than the Poe quickie horror comedy tale.
Also, the film varies in tone mostly it feels just a tad over the top with an undertone of comedy, and so the horror elements are weak.
