Anthologies seem to be making a comeback as of late, with the success of such films as V/H/S and The ABC’s of Death to name a couple. The upcoming film Sanitarium hopes to cash in on the recent surge of anthology films.
Sanitarium consists of three tales based on particular patients of a mental institution. Each tale begins with Dr. Stenson, the primary physician at the Sanitarium, commenting on the recent arrival of a new patient. As Dr. Stenson speaks, the individual’s story begins. With elements from Creepshow, “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.
