Paranormal Asylum (2013)
Nimrod Zalmanowitz‘s Paranormal Asylum looks very promising from this horror trailer. I have to admit though that the scenes keep switching too fast but the meat of the trailer looks good. The background music really brings out the appeal to the movie trailer. The movie is all about Mary Malone, aka Typhoid Mary who was accused of spreading typhoid fever. Mary was sent to the New York insane Asylum in which she later died and is the haunting entity behind the new horror movie.
Synopsis: Mark and Andy are best friends and aspiring filmmakers seeking their next project. They decide to investigate the mystery of Mary Malone, aka Typhoid Mary, who was sent to North Brother Island, a New York insane asylum, to live in quarantined isolation after she was blamed for spreading typhoid fever. Dozens were infected by the terrible virus, and several deaths resulted as well. She would eventually die on North Brother Island after living for decades in isolation, a tragic end to a tumultuous life.
Now, ninety-six years later, Mark and Andy set out to discover the real truth behind Mary’s demise and travel to the ominous North Brother Island. Not long after their investigation begins, Andy’s fiancée, Michelle, attempts to contact Mary’s spirit through a séance. The next morning Mark and Andy discover Michelle is not herself, and she starts to act strange, filled with paranoia and confusion. When Michelle’s condition takes a violent turn for the worse, Mark and Andy become desperate and seek help by contacting the descendants of those who were responsible for Mary’s torturous death in solitary confinement. Mark and Andy hope they may hold the key to saving Michelle, but instead they uncover dark, sinister secrets and a wicked legacy of pure evil and murder. What began as a simple investigation turns into a battle for survival, where torture and death appear to be the only outcome.
Mark eventually has to accept the presence of Mary’s paranormal existence in order to save Michelle and himself and try to escape. Typhoid Mary may be dead, but she’s certainly not gone. She has a story of vengeance she wants told… no matter the cost.
