The Experiment
Das Experiment screenwriter Mario Giordano works with writer/director Paul Scheuring to craft this remake based on the notorious Stanford Prison Experiment. A team of scientists are conducting a psychological experiment that requires the participation of 20 subjects. The rules are simple: one group of subjects will be assigned the role of prison guards, while the others will be assigned the role of inmates. Though the guards are specifically instructed to maintain order without the use of force, no one is prepared for what happens when mutiny erupts, and civility erodes.

"Scheuring does summon the energy to end the picture with a The More You Know closer, but it's a laughable period at the end of a baffling sentence...the feature misses a lasting significance by a country mile."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
