Vampire Journals Asylum is a dark horror Noir set in the 1940’s. Dr. Holden is our Narrator and he guides us on his Journey from being a big city doctor to being sent to Danbury Rose Sanatorium, a Mental Asylum up in the hills of West Virginia. A place where the smoke from the mines block out most of the sun… “bad things like to creep in the dark.” Dr. Holden and his beautiful mixed wife are a forward thinking city couple thrust into the dark and mysterious world of this backwoods asylum. Holden is sent to investigate the wellness of Superintendent Bernard but after seeing what is happening he must find out if this is just another mental ward or if dark supernatural forces are at play.
