Built on a site of great and forgotten power, the mammoth Bentham International Hospital was to be the very definition of modern medical science at its best. But over the years, the spectres and dark secrets of the Hospital began to bore away at its heart, leaving its foundations cracked and vulnerable to the oldest of horrors and nightmares.

When a prominent Commissioner of the City's Housing and Urban Development Department is brought to the Panopticon for evaluation after murdering her family, the haunted secrets of the hospital begin to unravel, leaving no one untouched. Julius, the prosthetic boy in room 13 is waking up. The black eggs are found. The lines between the patients and the doctors are blurring. This is where the end begins. Every cure is paid with a curse and every sin is birthed anew as the once brilliant light of modern medicine forsakes the world for the shadows it can no longer hide.

Sudden Gravity 2 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

A rather inchoherent horror set in an asylum. Takes itself a little too seriously and ends up making very little sense. Images are black and white interiors, lots of dialogue and confusing angle changes. I get the sense that there was more back story than made it to the pages, but what did ended as a confused mess.
