We've been waiting for news on this film forever, and finally the trailer has been released. The Experiment recreates the infamous Stanford prison experiment in 1971, documenting what happens when college students are transformed into prisoners and prison guards.

To be fair, this isn't the first film to recreate Philip Zimbardo's Stanford Experiment. A German film called Das Experiment, which this American film seems to have been directly inspired by, was based loosely on the experiments. Plus I remember a wonderful Veronica Mars episode about this test as well. Either way, we're beyond excited that this film is finally getting a release date, even if it is just direct to DVD. Look for The Experiment Sept. 21st.
