“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.

  • “The Experiment” is a remake of the 2001 German film “Das Experiment”, which was an excellent movie! To be honest, when you see only this American movie, I guess you will like it. But compared to the German one, this is not as good as the original! While its extremely fast paced, it has an interesting and intriguing storyline with great actors (Forest Whitaker and Adrien Brody) and some twists which, all in all, made me confused, excited, worried and even gave me an intense hatred for some of the characters. This movie is really harsh and confronting! Like I said, this is certainly worth a watch, but do not compare it with the original…
