Not steamy, but period and full of Victorian madhouse goodies.

I can thoroughly recommend this movie based on an Edgar Allan Poe story.

9/10 for me.

It looks so delightfully deranged, and just in line with the tastes of Mister Poe. It is in fact based on one of my favorite of Poe's works which as long as it is done well, makes it even more appealing for me. Ironically however. the system of Dr. Tarr and Prof. Fether was intended as a comedy.

Intrigued, I started reading the plot of "The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether".
It gave the movie away for me before I realized what I was doing.
I liked Shutter island too.

Oh I just found the film while browsing netflix and watched it last week. I read a few reviews of it before that and they were rather discouraging. After I saw the film I have to say I really don't understand the hating. Lovely victoriana and plot and, of course, asylums and victorian mental health care (or "care" if you will) are a must see for me =)

I did not have high hopes going into this movie - I figured it would be flush with cliches.  But it proved darker and harder then I expected. Personally I can't turn away from an early asylum setting.
