Audience Reviews for The Steam Experiment (The Chaos Experiment)


Along the same sort of lines as 'Saw' with its 'people trapped inside a room' for the entire film, it does have some eerie and tense performances which do make you feel trapped and nervous whilst watching the film but the plot is so disjointed and senseless that it ruins a possible winner.
The cast is a reasonable ensemble with Kilmer, Assante, Eric Roberts and Pat Muldoon, with the idea of trapping people in a sauna to fry slowly to death is quite good, like I said it worked for 'Saw', but the director clearly strings the film out to fill time.
Some sequences are quite good and make you feel the heat but others are overdrawn and tend to jump from normality to not making sense very quickly. The ending really frustrates as you don't really know what has happened, was it in real time? the past? did it ever happen? was it just a dream or weird fantasy by Kilmer's character?? you could say that making you think is a good ending but this just annoys you because you wanna know damn it!

A demented professor wants to prove the effects of global warming by locking six people inside a Turkish steam room... What!, are you kidding me?! Who would ever come up with such a ridiculous idea? The only thing worse than this stupid premise is certainly its awful development...
