This thriller portrays the Stanford prison experiment which was ostensibly a psychological study of human responses to captivity and its behavioral effects on both authorities and inmates in prison. It was conducted in 1971 by a team of researchers led by Philip Zimbardo of Stanford University. Undergraduate volunteers played the roles of both guards and prisoners living in a mock prison in the basement of the Stanford psychology building. Within one-day things got out of hand, and the “guards” used unmonitored brute force on many of the inmates. The experiment was cancelled after 6 days instead of the planned 14.
