BEDLAM (1946)

Bedlam film poster

Val Lewton’s visually haunting condemnation of mental asylums. Mark Robson directs Boris Karloff  in perhaps one of his most vicious roles as the sadistic Master George Sims. Challenged by Mistress Bowen (Anna Lee) for his cruelty and inhumane treatment of the inmates, Sims orchestrates her confinement to Bedlam as she tries to reform the horrible conditions of the place. Stunning and brutal, Bedlam is the most savage story in the Lewton canon. With a wonderful appearance by character actor Ian Wolfe who always brings a bit of perspicuity to any film.
