Well, this was a weird movie. It's primarily set in an asylum that treats the criminally insane (and has terrible security). There's a particular serial killer connected with the hero, who is not very interesting and can't really atc.

There are four named female characters; the female lead, who is a psychiatrist, a nurse/attendent, her granddaughter, and Mabel the cannibal, who is probably the most memorable character in the film. The film passes the Bechdel test with conversations about, um, cannibalism, butchery of human beings, and other such delights between Mabel and her doctor. There's also some conversation between the doctor and nurse about the granddaughter.

It's not a great movie by any means, but there are some hilarious dark scenes, the female lead is decently acted, competent and brave, and the Wolf serial killer has some sweet armour.

It sounds somewhat entertaining, and it's always great to hear of a female lead who is portrayed and written decently!
