Asylum Blackout Exclusive Clip: The Trouble Begins
Asylum Blackout is exactly the movie it promises to be-- the story of what happens when the power goes out at a high-security asylum and the inmates stage a breakout. What makes this different from most other thrillers you'll see, though, is the sane people left to survive in the asylum are three slackers and bandmates who had been working in the asylum kitchen for easy money. You can meet those four guys in the exclusive clip we're premiering below, in which you see both the dismal conditions in the cafeteria and the potential start of the rebellion. Take a look:
After premiering at the Toronto Film Festival under the title The Incident, the movie was renamed Asylum Blackout and is now coming to theaters and VOD via IFC Midnight.

George, Max and Ricky are in a rock band. Between small gigs and rehearsals, they hope for their big breakthrough. In the meanwhile, someone has to pay the bills! So they work in the kitchen of a high security asylum. Good pay, minimum risk - they have no physical contact with the inmates. One night, just before dinner time, a big storm shuts down the security system, the doors open and the lunatics break loose. Help is on its way and should soon arrive. They just have to wait for it…and survive until then.
