THE REAL BRIARCLIFF

The dreaded Briarcliff Hospital ... only imbeciles would believe their cheap palaver. Only the old peeling paint building and dingy facade would make anyone's hair stand on end with a minimum of sanity (which, ironically, does not abound too much around here). Even in the farthest corridors you can hear the dreadful ditty that repeats itself over and over in the common room, without rest or pause ... or is it inside my head ?; The cries and screams fill every corner of this hell, as a permanent reminder of what we are: spoils, laboratory rats. How many of them will know? How many of them, like me, will understand that every stroke of a stick that crosses our backs, every experiment that turns us into mutilated and horrifying beasts that will never see the outside world, only brings us closer to the inhumanity of which facing the world the hospital aims to save us?

Some of us are lucky, some of us are "the pretty face" of Briarcliff, the insane who have the right to sit on the hard chairs of the common room to look out the windows and sometimes even to look at the visitors. Others instead end up in isolation cells, those unhealthy little cubicles of ridiculous size, with just a slit of light, with no possibility of a bed or a blanket to escape the cold and the horror that walks between our lost minds; and even that is a better destiny than to end up in one of the laboratories where we stop being human beings to become faceless monsters, without form, without mind, completely at the mercy of the true madmen: the doctors who experiment with us as if we were animals. They know that no one will come for us, that the outside world sends us here to forget us, to remove from their eyes the uncomfortable insanity.

Briarcliff has no exit, once you enter you will never be able to escape.
