THE EXPERIMENT (2010 U.S.) D/W/P: PAUL T. SCHEURING P: JEANETTE BUERLING/BILL JOHNSON/MAGGIE MONTEITH/MARTY ADELSTEIN/SCOTT NEMES/DAWN PAROUSE
Volunteers for a psychological experiment are taken to a remote building that`s been turned into a makeshift prison for two weeks. They are seperated into guards and prisoners, are given strict rules (i.e. no violence) and monitored by cameras. A battle for superiority soon escalates. An inferior remake of the German movie DAS EXPERIMENT, both of them being based on Mario Giordano`s book Black Box (itself inspired by the notorious Stanford Prison Experiment of 1971). Adrien Brody is the peacenik who heads the prisoners, fucked-up zealot Fisher Stevens (who pisses on Brody) the guards. With Clifton Collins Jr., Ethan Cohn, Fisher Stevens, Cam Gigandet and Maggie Grace (in brief scenes shot in India). Scheuring created PRISON BREAK, more his level of hokum as he`s clearly out of his depth here.
