Asylum (1972)

Asylum (1972)Watch the trailer!

Concluding the horror anthology pairing is another from 1972, and a second from Amicus studios, who were responsible for over half a dozen other such anthologies in the 60s and 70s. This time, it's the anthology "Asylum!" When Dr. Martin arrives at his new position, he's greeted by Dr. Lionel Rutherford, a different administrator than he originally talked to, and subsequently finds out that the former head of the institution is now a patient. Rutherford announces that he'll still accept the offer made to Dr. Martin by his predecessor if Martin can identify the former head of the Asylum. Each patient's story is a vignette in the film. "Frozen Fear" stars Richard Todd, "The Weird Tailor" stars Peter Cushing (in a much more traditional role for him) and Barry Morse, "Lucy Come to Stay" features both Charlotte Rampling and Britt Ekland, and "Mannequins of Horror" stars Pink Panther-alum Herbert Lom! Jeff chose this one as an example of a very well-done connecting story that makes linking the vignettes make narrative sense! Plus, the trio reveal which two 80s college comedies make up the next pairing!
