"When you have found a thing a man fears most, you will have discovered the key to his madness." Having just announced the release date for Stonehearst Asylum, the Edgar Allan Poe-based film formerly known as Eliza Graves, Millennium Entertainment has now unveiled the film's first trailer, and the debut footage shows that looks can be deceiving... and deadly.

Stonehearst Asylum, based on Edgar Allan Poe’s The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether, is slated for an October 24th release in theaters and VOD platforms, just in time for Halloween:

"A recent medical school grad who takes a position at a mental institution soon finds himself taken with one of his colleagues, though he has no initial idea of a recent, horrifying staffing change."

Directed by Brad Anderson (Session 9) and written by Joseph Gangemi (Fear Itself, Wind Chill), Stonehearst Asylum boasts a talented cast that includes Kate Beckinsale, Michael Caine, Brendan Gleeson, Ben Kingsley, Jim Sturgess, and David Thewlis.
