we have to wash our hands clean of this

Materials and Methods
Nikon D80 + Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm F/1.8D + SB-600 with bounce lighting plus natural lighting. White bathroom. Red acrylic paint. Decreased highlights and increased midtones in post for the bright yet faded look.

Additional Comments
Been awhile since I've taken photos in my white bathroom :XD:

On a side note, first time submitting to this Horror & Macabre category. I don't know why dA's ranking algorithm is so partial to this category (read more about these category games here: [link])
This deviation's stats: Submitted:1h 13m ago; Favourites: 47; Views: 238; Category: Horror & Macabre (a very non-competitive category)
The neighboring deviations on 8 hr front page of photography:
In front: Submitted: 6h 5m ago; Favourites: 299; Views: 1,849; Category: People & Portraits (a generally much more competitive category)
Behind: Submitted: 6h 4m ago; Favourites: 109; Views: 942; Category: Architecture
By all measurements, the deviation ranked behind of this one is more popular and yet it's been deemed "not as popular" by dA's ranking algorithm. Similarly, the deviation ranked in front of this one is much more popular by all measurements yet the ranking system places these two deviations so close together. WTF. This piece, my piece, should not be ranked so comparatively high based on its stats. Give the pieces that have rightfully earned their spot on front page their gosh darn spot and well deserved attention.

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-08-03
Well cropped with startling color, this shot reminds us that not all scary pictures need be dark and gloomy.

'this shot reminds us that not all scary pictures need be dark and gloomy.' Exactly, and that shows here! I really like it. I like that you were more original and used white instead of black/grey to show the darkness. It's effective as it fits the title of 'Asylum', giving it a sort of clinical, blank eerieness, and the red really stands out as well. :) Lovely work, well deserved DD.
