Movie Info

Her memory stripped and her thoughts filled with only unthinkably nightmares, a woman wandering the streets of Prague places her trust in a man who also has no memory in this dark thriller from first-time writer/director Dan Turner. Anna (Georgina French) is a woman consumed by pain, and desperately searching for an escape from her misery. Once day, while drifting through the streets of Prague, Anna comes into contact with fellow amnesiatic Morgan (John Hopkins). While neither Anna nor Morgan can make sense of their past, they each feel bonded together my some mysterious force beyond their comprehension. Little does this clueless pair realize just how right they really are, because somewhere in the underground shadows of the city lurks a force that guides their every move. There's no use trying to resist the power that propels them towards their ultimate fate, and as the experiment gets underway every moment grows more agonizing than the last. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Experiment

The plot actually is quite interesting, but it would've been better served by a more experienced director.

"Things are going too fast" opines one character repeatedly, but alas for us, he is sadly mistaken. The experiment in "Experiment" involves two amnesiacs, a man and a woman, who awake on the streets of Prague. A group of miscellaneously-accented Europeans monitor and control them with computer equipment that looks like it was recycled from War Games, directing them towards one another, subjecting them to noises in their heads, and controlling the people and events around them, rather like a poor-man's Eagle Eye. The primary problem with the film is not that it is a "bad" movie, but that it is an utterly unengaging movie. We frankly do not care about the amnesiacs, their tormentors, or indeed what the mysterious experiment actually is. The amnesiacs mostly stumble about, struggle to speak, and manifest none of the normal behaviors that one might expect under the circumstances (e.g., seek medical help). The experimenters trade stock dialogue which reveals nothing, and more importantly, fails to interest the viewer in what is not being revealed. Imparting the desire to know is the essential ingredient for success in a film of this style - Experiment, then, is a bland dish, without taste, texture, or style.

Cold and uninvolving, it fails to convince. The performers try, and do a good job acting, but with the material they had to work with it doesn't much matter. Far fetched and generally stupid.
