The Asylum

WELCOME TO ANGELTON ASYLUM. ENTRY IS EASY, BUT LEAVING? THAT’S DEADLY.

The year is 1906, and Maud Lovell has been confined in Angelton for half a decade. Her memory of her arrival is hazy, and her life is confined to the institution’s walls. She’s labeled hysterical, violent, and unreliable.

Then, a new doctor arrives, eager to explore the emerging technique of medical hypnosis – and he considers Maud an intriguing subject. Yet, as Doctor Dimmond peers into her history, it’s evident that her heavy sedation and confinement might be more about silencing her than treating her.

As Maud’s memories resurface, so too do her desires for vengeance…
