Dark Cinema, A & P Films LLP, and Café Oscuro Films present Asylum Nights, a new film from director and Emmy-award winning makeup artist Dean C. Jones.
Now through January 16, 2015, A & P Films LLP is running an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for Asylum Nights. The funds raised will help the film maintain complete creative control.
In Asylum Nights, Andy Roberts takes over as head physician of the night shift at Evergreen Asylum after his predecessor is found dead. Things turn tragic when a night guard unleashes a wave of violence against the helpless patients. After Andy’s only friend, a night-shift nurse, is slain, he turns to Leon, a gentle giant, for help. Together they set out to stop the violence, but Leon has his own reasons for being in the asylum — and these reasons are just as bloody.
Dean C. Jones, director with A & P Films LLP, said “Asylum Nights can best be described as a mix between One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Seven, and Tod Browning’s Freaks. This film will push on every emotion, and is a rare gem.”
Horror icon and Lon Chaney-award winner, Bill Oberst Jr. (Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies, Criminal Minds, Take this Lollipop, Circus of the Dead) is attached to star in Asylum Nights.

Dr. Henry West founded The Atticus Institute in the early 1970s to test individuals expressing supernatural abilities – E.S.P., clairvoyance, psychokinesis, etc. Despite witnessing several noteworthy cases, nothing could have prepared Dr. West and his colleagues for Judith Winstead. She outperformed every subject they had ever studied – soon gaining the attention of the U.S. Department of Defense, who subsequently took control of the research facility. The more experiments they conducted on Judith, the clearer it became that her abilities were the manifestation of evil forces within her, prompting the government to take measures to weaponize this force. But they soon discovered there are powers that exist in this world that simply cannot be controlled. Now the details of the inexplicable events that occurred within The Atticus Institute are being made public after rem
