This week, we look back at an intriguing collection of trailers and clips, ranging from British horror to Indian zombies to a horrified mother to a menacing thriller.
A creepy trailer for what looks like a creepy movie, Stonehearst Asylum introduces Ben Kingsley as the head of an institution where med school graduate Jim Sturgess has landed his first position. Kate Beckinsale also stars as a patient, with Michael Caine making an appearance in an unlikely role. Based on a story by Edgar Allan Poe, the movie will be released in theaters on October 24.

In the sequel to their 2011 original, which was set in Africa, directors Howard J. Ford and Jonathan Ford follow a stalwart hero as he travels 300 miles through zombie-ravaged India to save his pregnant girlfriend. It's due out on Blu-ray and DVD on September 16. [Bloody Disgusting]
A spooky movie that starts on the quiet side, Lyle stars Gaby Hoffman as "a pregnant lesbian confronted by an unspeakable evil." This clip is more unnerving than anything else; the movie is available to stream without cost during a Kickstarter campaign for a new horror flick from the filmmakers.

This thriller looks quite menacing, well beyond what one might expect from any movie boasting a cast that includes Katie Cassidy, Michael Imperioli, Billy Campbell, Eliza Dushku, Gina Gershon, Sasha Grey, Michelle Trachtenberg and Garret Dillahunt. It follows a young woman (Cassidy) who suffers from multiple personality disorder, and her attempt to cure herself with an experimental machine. The movie is due out this fall. [IGN]
