Asylum Seekers

Posted: 04 Mar 2010 20:20 under 2009, Comedy, Fantasy, USA

A freewheeling, demented, dark comedy about the modern world, in which six men and women, fed up with the abuse they suffer in their “normal” lives, seek “asylum” as inmates of a mental institution. They’ve all heard about a place up on the hill with an exclusive treatment program; now each of them is out to show just how mad they can be when electro-shock treatment and a comfy bed with a doting nurse has become the perfect alternative to life on the outside. But the asylum has its own unexpected agenda; for a start, due to a massive influx of patients, there is only one bed left. As the characters are made to compete against each other for this spot, it becomes clear that this is no ordinary institution.
