Buried deep within the walls of the infamous Nightmare Factory is a hidden passage that descends two levels into Gordon Cottingham's Hospital for the Mentally Insane.

The eerie atmosphere is amplified by the endless screams of the tortured and damned souls that met their demise within the walls of the hospital. From the creators of the 13th Floor haunted house and Nightmare Factory, the Asylum features new frights for in-your-face terror.
