Changed "setting" to "set" in the 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Next' Real Life section, for clarity.
* The setting for the movie 'One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest' was a real asylum. Years after the filming it was discovered cremated remains had been simply abandoned in the facility. Real life horror, not movie horror.

** Although oddly, despite the asylum's macabre history,it looks like a regular building from the outside, which adds to the surreal horror.

* ''LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'': The Bedlam House-esque psych home where the nurses don't speak English, people wander around without pants, and one woman died of heat stroke was a scam run by a man providing bare minimum care while padding his own pockets with rest of the government's funds.

* The Ranch from ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' is a particularly sinister one. After Gotham starts enacting rather strict rules regarding the handling of juvenile crime, the institution is advertised as an alternative for troubled kids, and becomes ''very'' popular, with parents admitting their kids to the admittedly expensive clinic from the genuinely rebellious to the most minor of offenders. In truth, the claims of humane treatment are a farce, and the [[PsychoPsychiatrist doctor who runs]] the place [[WouldHurtAChild uses brainwashing techniques known for use by cults and on prisoners of war.]] Kidnapping is also not beneath him when Terry investigates. His flaw, of course, is that Terry is Batman. (And knows the original one.)

* "The Ranch" featured in the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' episode "The Last Resort" turned out to be a Bedlam House for teenagers designed to break (and I do mean ''break'') their spirits[[note]]They would stand for long hours listening to the owner demean them and say he is their only hope for being better. And if people act out, they get sent to "Iso" which is isolation to the extreme. No light. No sound. Alone in the dark. Most end up breaking in it after a short time[[/note]]. Fortunately Terry gets involved when one of his friends is sent there by her father. At the end of the episode when Terry exposes The Ranch's horrors and frees the teens, said friend understandably refuses to forgive her father for sending her there.

* In the [[{{Lemon}} sexually explicit]] fanwork ''The Witch with No Name'', the plot of the ''WesternAnimation/Ben10'' episode "A Change of Face" is brutally [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstructed]]. Not only is Gwen's continual insistence of being trapped in Charmcaster's body completely disbelieved by all the staff and residents of the juvenile penitentiary, but the head guard has utter contempt for Charmcaster due to her mother being severely injured by one of Charmcaster's previous attacks. Gwen is forced to undergo continuous physical, sexual, and emotional abuse at the hands of the other residents, and to top it all off is prescribed anti-psychotic drugs that will help to bury the "Gwen" in Charmcaster's head, effectively leaving her an EmptyShell.

* ''Film/SuckerPunch'' takes place in an asylum de facto run by an especially crooked orderly, with the main characters plotting to escape the place before protagonist Baby Doll's lobotomist arrives. In a subversion, the head psychiatrist ''tried'' to treat Baby Doll, but she didn't have enough time before the surgery date while the lobotomist questions the effectiveness of lobotomies in general. When he points out [[spoiler:she ordered the surgery, she realises her signature was forged and uncovers the corruption.]]

* In ''Film/TheWolfman2010'', Lawerence Talbot is sent to Lambert Asylum as the police believe he's a random but human nutcase rather than, well, the WolfMan. Their attempts to cure him of believing he is a werewolf includes forcefully dunking him, repeatedly, into ice water. [[spoiler: As you can imagine, once the next full moon comes around, he escapes quite easily, killing most of the doctors in the process]].

* EdgarAllanPoe's ''The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether'' [[ValuesDissonance subverted this]] with a nice clean asylum which took proper care of its inmates, but had some very quirky doctors. Turns out, the slack treatment allowed the inmates to escape and take over the asylum. The real psychiatrists were locked in the cells, tarred, and feathered.
