Fifteen years ago, the gouvernment conducted a top secret experiment on sleep deprivation, testing a drug designed to keep people awake on five convicts (Rob James Capel, Will Murphy, Sam McGovern, Brian Moore, Steven Jess), who were promised their freedom in return to being kept awake for 30 days straight. Back when though, the experiment went terribly wrong, leaving nine people dead, horribly murdered when some of the test subjects snapped. Initially it was just ruled as an extremely unhappy failure, but eventually it was found out that all of the test subjects were in for murder, and some were dangerous psychopaths, so the experiment was doomed to fail from the start ...

But that was fifteen years ago, and two policemen (Barry John Kinsella, Anthony Murphy) get to interview the creator and showrunner of the experiment (Tom Kerrisk) only now, and he makes his case that he also only was a victim of the system, being maybe not forced but certainly encouraged to design the experiment he couldn't know would go that wrong. But what if there's more to the story than meets the eye?


In a way I almost regret to say, this film is pretty predictable - and I regret to say it because that sounds like a bad thing to say, and The Sleep Experiment is actually a really good film, as despite giving its game away early on, it's driven by tension and suspense, it's character- rather than spectacle-based, it translates the strain of its characters to the screen really well, and even if the topic of the film sounds a little far-fetched this side of Nazi experiments, it's perfectly relatable in the movie's grander context. And a strong cast is really just the icing on the cake, to make this a really cool and properly disturbing genre effort.
