There's something here, but it's darker, and more elusive, than perhaps Fox even knows.
Like Blackout itself, "The Blackout Experiments" is often chilling and hard to shake.
The participants provide plenty of heavy breathing about the darkness within, though when the mysterious organizers, a couple of young theater types, finally sit for an on-camera interview, their idea of what it's all about seems pretty vague.
Neither scary nor shocking.
The result is interesting enough, but feels a bit overextended at feature length considering the limited insight afforded.
In the end, the experiment feels more like a hollow thrill than anything else.
It doesn't look like any fun at all, and Fox lets the "victims" tell their stories in video testimonials, explaining why they willingly go back for more.
The Blackout Experiments evolved into a surprisingly transformative journey for the participants, exploring their connections to Blackout and demonstrating how the haunt has become something more personal to many who have dared to take its challenge.
Eighty minutes has rarely felt so long.
It's the subjects of The Blackout Experiments that make the film so compelling, as they struggle with their attraction to the experience.
A terribly ineffective nonfiction horror film.
