THE ASYLUM is a US horror drama in which doctors carry out brainwashing and mind manipulation on patients in an asylum.

Violence

Scenes of strong violence include a man being suffocated to death with a pillow, prisoners being beaten, and adult characters being stabbed.

Threat

There are several scenes of strong threat in which characters are stalked, and those in which prisoners are programmed to kill fellow prisoners. There are also scenes in which a terrified woman is gagged.

There is infrequent strong language ('f**k'), as well as some milder bad language (for example, 'bitch', 'shit', 'bastard', 'damn', 'Jesus').
