Based on lame book about sexual experimentation, the movie fares about as well.

Audience Reviews for The Harrad Experiment


Interesting premise and surprisingly profound at times. Featuring a young Don Johnson and Bruno Kirby in full glory.

I've just recently gotten into watching older movies. They are so great. A peek into the earlier days, lol. Anyway, The Harrad Experiment is a very good movie. I totally recommend it to anyone with interests in older movies. Nice storyline.

5.5/10. Interesting curio from the early 1970's. I admire it for being a bit daring for the time, it's main flaw lies in the amateurish acting, although they sincerely try.
