"Whoever called this a "British" gem must be out of their minds. This is low-budget, bad acting, with I think they are supposed to be "vampires", yeah whatever. I know everybody has to make a living, including the "actors" in this movie, but unless you have money to GIVE away-don't buy. I'm just being honest!"
Lots of vampires!

"Ellen Cole is an agency nurse. She goes to work a shift at a mental facility. The staff are not interested in knowing her, referring to her as "the agency" (well observed - that happened to me too!).
In actuality, she is an undercover reporter. Her brother is in the facility for the murder of their parents - something Ellen believes him to be innocent of. Somehow she must find a way to expose the abuse and get her brother out; for he never should have been sent to that facility in the first place.
Ellen gets more than she bargained for. Sexy female doctors, blood, sultry nurses, blood, the 'nice bloke' who happens to turn a bit 'odd' when he is holding a machete, blood, and the Christmas party.
Oh yes, and vampires.
Lots of vampires.
As you watch this film, it is really difficult to believe that this is a debut feature for the new Revolt Films company - even in its best moments, Hammer Horror isn't a patch on this!
It is quite clear that the creators of this film are avid horror fans. This is certainly no "cash in on the trend" type of horror flick, nor another "let's put a bunch of teenagers in a forest..." film. Oh no. This film has been written by horror fans so it contains all the things that horror fans would want in a movie. Some great characters, great situations, and considering the low budget - the special effects were okay too.
It is really nice to have the humour played subtle, rather than several recent 'big' horror movies that were mainly funny because of stupid things they said or other movies they ripped off. Asylum Night is not like this at all. It assumes we viewers have a brain. It is a thinking man's horror movie.
In fact my only complaint with Asylum Night is the final?, however this didn't put me off the movie - everything up until that point was near genius.
(I think I'll just have to shrug and say 'artistic differences')
I won't spoil it for you by telling you what I didn't like. Watch the movie, perhaps you can guess...
Ellen Cole is well played by Adrienne Carlyle; and David Horton puts in a brilliant performance as the sanest person in the asylum.
This is definitely a not to be missed film, and congratulations to Revolt Films for such an entertaining and intelligent horror movie...
