From writer, producer James Gunn (Super, Slither), director Greg McLean (Wolf Creek, Rogue, The Darkness) and producer Peter Safran (The Conjuring, Annabelle), comes the story about a group of 80 American employees who are tested in a twisted social experiment of bone-crunching horror! Belko Industries, a normally calm workplace, gets a rude awakening when a mysterious voice on the intercom orders them to participate in a ruthless game of kill or be killed in a blood-soaking battle royale at their office building in Bogotá, Colombia. As the terror escalates, so does the body count. Everyone is a competitor and everyday objects become deadly weapons. Let the corporate carnage commence!
We like it because:
When Greg McLean, the director of the legendary shocker Wolf Creek, directs a script by James Gunn, the man behind the Dawn of the Dead remake, you know you’re in for a rollercoaster ride. THE BELKO EXPERIMENT is a furious, ruthless and relentless horror thriller that proves no-one ever wished they spent more time in the office.
Starting out as what seems to be a workspace satire, the film quickly shifts gear and moves into flat-out carnage and escalating thrills, as employee Mike (played by John Gallagher, Jr. from The Newsroom and 10 Cloverfield Lane) sees a normal day at the office turn into a fight to the death. While Gunn provides the gallows humour (the cheeky use of the song I Will Survive on the soundtrack, for example), McLean delivers the shocks!
The superb ensemble cast includes Tony Goldwyn, Adria Arjona, Josh Brener, John C. McGinley as the office jerk, and Michael Rooker as the janitor.
THE BELKO EXPERIMENT is a terrifying, provocative and at times hilarious thrill-ride that literally provokes the question; what does it take to survive at work?
