I heard about this one on NPR. Definitely does not look like your typical Hollywood cookie cutter movie.

It looks like an interesting movie but I'll wait for Netflix I think. I want to see it mainly due James Gunn being attached to it. I love his work.

Just recently watched The Belko Experiment. Extremely disturbing & well-done. Also, quite horrific and scary, especially because I can easily see something like this actually happening; I also feel that if something like this were to happen, the people involved in "the experiment" would probably act very similar to the way the characters did in the film.

Though the film had a lot of gruesome violence, I didn't feel that any of it was gratuitous.

The government gets more & more control of us each year, and we do know there have been psychological-type experiments - so, again, this is not that far fetched whatsoever.

Also, the tracking chips had been implanted in people in the film (at the start of their employment in The Belko Corporation) have occurred in real-life - again, very scary:

Agreed.

I saw it about 3 months ago... it's not very good. Honestly not worth seeing in theaters. Maybe if it's on tv and nothing else to watch.
