Das Experiment is a shocking psycho thriller about the potential for brutality that humans hide. Even more shocking is the fact that it’s based on an actual occurrence—a 1971 psychological experiment at Stanford University that was aborted prematurely when the experimenters lost control.

This was wickedddddd. The tension was felt in every moment, in every scene and shot. The dark colours light up stark against the oddly steretypical but not out of place music. This compelling storytelling has you on edge through out the movie! If you like thrillers, and stories with unethical motives, give this a shot!
