Sanitarium is a 2013 horror anthology film that was directed by Bryan Ortiz (Monsters are Real), Bryan Ramirez (Figuratively Speaking), and Kerry Valderrama (Up to the Last Man). It received its world premiere at the Miami International Film Festival on March 1, 2013 and was released to DVD on December 31, 2013.
The film stars John Glover, David Mazouz, and Lou Diamond Phillips as three people whose stories ultimately lead them - and friends - to become patients of a sanitarium.
A ghastly figure stalks a young boy as he struggles with an abusive home life. But when a concerned teacher reaches out to help him, will the monster prove to be a figment of his imagination, or something else entirely?
