Jedinstven uvid u "bolnicu" za criminally insane osobe, dakle za osobe koje su počinile najteža krivična dela ali je nađeno da nisu krivi iz razloga što su teško oboleli. U sličnoj ovakvoj ustanovi boravio je i Ed Gein, a trebao je i Džefri Dahmer al' ga sjebaše porotnici.
"Billed as a "graphic, uncompromising look at life inside an institution for the criminally insane," "Asylum" never misses a chance to zoom in for a close-up of a patient in anguish. You want tears, pain? No problem, this show will find 'em.
"Asylum" was shot at Patton State Hospital, an institution for the criminally insane near San Bernardino. Many of the patients suffer from manic depression and schizophrenia, which triggered or contributed to their crimes. They were sentenced to Patton after being judged "not guilty by reason of insanity"; over time, most will be released and only 12% of those will commit another crime."
