One of the most notorious and some believe most dangerous experiments about the human psyche dubbed the “Stanford Prison Experiement” is finally being made into a movie.

The Wrap reported that a studio is making a movie about the famed experiment starring Billy Crudup, Ezra Miller and Michael Angarano. The movie will recap the events of the famed 1971 Stanford psychology experiment conducted by Professor Philip Zimbardo in which he converted a basement into a prison and hired students to play the guards and prisoners to see how they would react. Zimbardo’s experiment shocked the world as it transformed the prison guard students into cruel tormentors who would abuse the prisoners psychologically in order to gain their control with nothing more than orders and rules enforced by an administrator. It’s basically a psychological horror movie that takes place on a college campus and involves something much scarier than a slasher or serial killer running amok with a sharp object…

The scary part is how it has inspired other teachers and professors to conduct their own twisted experiments on their students such as a Norfolk, Virginia fourth grade teacher who actually had his students reenact a slave trade to teach them about the Civil War. Experiments like this were also running rampant throughout the 1970s where scientists were basically psychological puppet masters pulling the strings of their subjects as they struggled to maintain control of their sanity such as Stanley Milgram’s obedience experiment. It even inspired an infamous book and movie called The Harrad Experiment about students being paired as roommates to see if they’ll get it on or not. It’s also probably due for a remake…
