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.

Easy pass on this one; a good number of named female characters, many of who talk to each other. One segment consists almost entirely of women, three schoolgirls and a mother, talking about the haunting and some other girls.

Several of the movie's scares have become cliche since its release, but there are still plenty of chilling moments. Worth a look.
