I got this movie after I discovered it was written, produced & directed by the genius behind Prison Break Paul T Scheuring.

The two leads are brilliant, and it was clear from this film how they were both Oscar winners.

A couple of the scenes were brutal, overall a good movie, not the best I've ever seen, but I'm glad I bought it.

It was based off the Stanford Prison Experiment, but if I remember correctly, nobody really died at the end of it, though someone did get removed early, and some of the psychologists actually tried to stop the experiment earlier than 6 days. Great performance by everyone in the cast. But I'm not a big fan of the story, since it seemed a bit melodramatic; the phrase "that escalated quickly" really describes this film. I wish they'd actually stuck to the facts instead of aiming for the disgust factor. They made the psychologists look like real genuine gullible idiots in this film; first, they let an ex-convict in (they obviously did not do any background checks), second, they let a potentially psychopathic guy in, third, they took their participants at their word (people lie, it's a fact).
