The Stanford Prison Experiment Trailer


It's 1971 and University professor Dr. Philip Zimbardo wants to try a new social and psychological experiment. The idea was to take 18 young, well-adjusted males and put half in the role of a prison guard and half in the role of a prison inmate. It quickly became apparent that the guards would dominate this situation and take their new job roles to the extreme.

Though all the volunteers know they're being watch by Zimbardo and his colleagues, this didn't seem to make much difference to how the guards react. Not willing to put up with the actions of the guards, soon the submissive prisoners decide to rebel and take matters into their own hands. As the volunteers fall deeper into their new lives, Zimbardo becomes fascinated by the results and how quickly the situation escalates. When rules start to get broken, when should enough be enough?

The Stanford Prison Experiment is a psychological thriller based on true events. The results of Zimbardo's test were published in a book named The Lucifer Effect.
The Stanford Prison Experiment was directed by Kyle Patrick Alvarez and stars a number of young actors including Michael Angarano, Moises Arias & Ezra Miller.

Very Good

With an inventive retro style, writer-director David Robert Mitchell offers an enjoyable riff on the teen horror movie. The film is shot with a fierce sense of perspective that draws the audience into a series of situations that are so unnerving that we're looking over our own shoulders as we leave the cinema. So even though some of the set-pieces feel under-cooked, the film is unsettling and involving.

The story takes place in a Detroit suburb, where Jay (Maika Monroe) is told by her boyfriend Hugh (Jake Weary) that he's passed something on to her when they slept together. And it's far worse than an STD. Now Jay can see random people following her everywhere. If one of them catches up with her she dies, and they'll go back to following Hugh. In a panic, Jay turns to her lovelorn childhood pal Paul (Keir Gilchrist) and her little sister Kelly (Lili Sepe), as well as her friend Yara (Olivia Luccardi) and groovy neighbour Greg (Daniel Zovatto). Together they run away to take stock of the situation, and all become convinced that the threat is real. The question is what to do next.

Although set in the present day, the film has a vivid 1970s feel, as these teens drive around in vintage cars, use landlines and think hiding out at a cabin in the woods is a good idea. And there are thematic echoes as well, with absent parents and the dark approach to youthful sex. Yes, this sexually transmitted stalker makes all of the film's intimate encounters feel eerily joyless, as if sex is something to reluctantly get out of the way. So over the course of the film, we watch these happy, carefree teens turn hollow and paranoid, which is surprisingly moving. And more than a little creepy. The fresh cast makes all of this remarkably realistic, especially since the plot's supernatural craziness is clearly a metaphor for the "Just say no" generation.

Jay (Maika Monroe) is just a normal teenage girl, desperate to break free from the normal conventions of her normal life. To this end, she goes on a date with a guy for a sense of freedom, and engages in a sexual relationship. But something passes from him to her - and its not what you would think. Something - a dark and mysterious something - has been following him, and now it is following her instead. A thing that is nameless, and shapeless, looking like whatever will help it get close to you. And it will never stop, until everyone one it is associated has been killed.
