When you pair up Michael Caine and Ben Kingsley—reunited over two decades on from "Without A Clue"—you can bet we'll watch. But we certainly have to give pause when the project in question, "Stonehearst Asylum" (formerly known as "Eliza Graves"), is hitting VOD the same day as theatrical. Granted, the stigma with VOD isn't the same as it once was, but that said, the strategy still does make you consider the quality of some projects.

Stonehearst Asylum

When you pair up Michael Caine and Ben Kingsley—reunited over two decades on from "Without A Clue"—you can bet we'll watch. But we certainly have to give pause when the project in question, "Stonehearst Asylum" (formerly known as "Eliza Graves"), is hitting VOD the same day as theatrical. Granted, the stigma with VOD isn't the same as it once was, but that said, the strategy still does make you consider the quality of some projects.

Anyway, you can judge for yourself as the first trailer for the movie has landed. Kate Beckinsale and Jim Sturgess co-star in this one, directed by Brad Anderson ("The Machinist," "Session 9"), and based on a short story by Edgar Allan Poe, that follows a med school grad who takes a position at an asylum where things aren't what they seem. It would appear that the inmates and the doctors running are equally crazy, leading the lone newbie left to sort it out with his furrowed brow and omnipresent lantern. Spooky!

"Stonehearst Asylum" arrives in time for Halloween on October 24th. Watch below.
