Interesting film although not sure how factual it is.

Classic chiller set in an 18th-century London asylum for the insane, where the wretched inmates suffer torture and abuse at the hands of the sadistic governor. When a brave actress tries to do something about the conditions, she herself ends up as an inmate. One of producer Val Lewton’s atmospheric specialties.
