AN ALL-STAR cast appear in this chilling and powerful drama behind the doors of a Victorian mental asylum.

Apprentice Edward Newgate (Jim Sturgess) is welcomed into Stonehearst Mental Asylum by its founder, Dr Silas Lamb (Sir Ben Kingsley).

The asylum is full of violent inmates, including young Eliza Graves (Kate Beckinsale), who lashes out unpredictably.

However Newgate soon begins to suspect something is amiss.

He becomes increasingly suspicious of what is happening at Stonehearst and is concerned Dr Lamb is not as caring as he makes out to be.

Then one day Newgate discovers the horrific secret Stonehearst has been hiding all these years.

Michael Caine, David Thewlis, Sinead Cusack and Brendan Gleeson also star in the film, which is based on a short story by Edgar Allen Poe.
