Gloomy Cinematography done by Soft Filters and Sepia Tone Separation from the Natural to give it a 19th Century Feel and t's all done to No Avail because this Story about a Real-Life "Retreat/Convalescent" Institute is Low on Budget and Facts.
Not a Complete Failure, but the Muddle is Not Only in the Look but with the Intrigue so Shallow as to be Non Existent. There is quite a Lot of Gore and some Torture both Mental and Physical.
The Side Story of the Brother's Investigation is Unfortunately Underused and aside from the Opening Credit Sequence is the Best Part of this Dismal Melodrama.
Individual Scenes Stand Out among the Complete Film but there is No There here and it is Surprisingly Flat for such a Horrific Situation. The Movie seems Half-Hearted and Exploitative and in the End is a Wasted Effort if there was any Effort at all from the Producers.
Note...James Franco...Can you say over exposure? Apparently not.
In 19th century Baltimore, a girl stricken with grief from her parents' untimely death voluntarily checks herself into the Rosewood Institute, and is subjected to bizarre and increasingly violent pseudo-scientific experiments in personality modification, brainwashing and mind control; she must escape the clutches of the Rosewood and exact her revenge.
