Worth Watching: Indie Horror Triptych 'Sanitarium' Red Band Trailer
"Insanity - it's a disease that spreads through the mind." Our friends at The Playlist have debuted a brand new red band festival trailer for an indie horror triptych film called Sanitarium, which is premiering at the Miami Film Festival next month. The trailer is based around Malcolm McDowell playing the head doctor of a sanitarium. There seem to be three distinct stories about patients inside who all are rather crazy, one with dolls (and dreadlocks), another with a creepy dark friend. The cast includes Lou Diamond Phillips, Robert Englund, John Glover, Lacey Chabert and plenty others. This actually looks surprisingly good.
Here's the first red band trailer for Ortiz, Ramirez & Valderrama's Sanitarium, from The Playlist:
Each tale begins with Dr. Stenson commenting on the recent arrival of a new patient. As Dr. Stenson speaks, the individual's story begins. With elements from Creep Show, The Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, and Tales from the Crypt, Sanitarium explores the different narratives of the insane patients – tales which led to their crazed states of minds. These accounts reflect hallucinations, imaginary voices, and altered realities, and include themes of the paranormal, the unexplainable, and the mystical. The motion picture features thrillers, dramas, horror, and mystery. Sanitarium is written and directed by Bryan Ortiz, Bryan Ramirez and Kerry Valderrama. It's premiering at the Miami Film Festival this March. Anyone?
