The short story “The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether” 1845 Edgar Allan Poe, one of the American literary greats, served as inspiration for Stone Hearst Asylum. Director Brad Anderson can shape this macabre story.
Arrives just before the start of the 20th century, the young Dr. Edward Newgate on Christmas Eve at the isolated Stone Hearst Asylum. He hopes to complete its prestigious study with practical experience here and is taken under the wing of the unorthodox Dr. Silas Lamb. Patients get into this device very much freedom and quickly falls Edward his eye on the beautiful patient Eliza Graves. She advises him to take to their feet as quickly as possible. He does call her off as crazy talk until a grisly discovery shines a different light on the matter in the basement.
