Millennium Entertainment has just unveiled plans to release the haunting gothic thriller Stonehearst Asylum on Blu-Ray Disc and DVD before Christmas.
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 by the name of 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. Inspired by a short story from Edgar Allan Poe, “Stonehearst Asylum” is a tale in which nobody is who or what they appear to be.
From the announcement, it appears, unfortunately, as if Millenium Entertainment is releasing the film as a bare-bones version without any bonus materials, but if additional details should surface we will, of course, keep you updated.
“Stonehearst Asylum” will be available on December 16 for $24.98 on Blu-Ray Disc and $19.98 on DVD.
