One of the gnarliest films to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, “The Belko Experiment” boasts two genre heavyweights behind the scenes: Producer James Gunn (“Slither,” “Guardians of the Galaxy”) and director Greg McLean, the Australian horror filmmaker best known for the grisly “Wolf Creek” series. The two gentlemen unleash a chamber piece thriller from hell with this new movie, which follows a group of employees who have 30-minutes to kill one of their co-workers or else six of them will die.
According to the official TIFF synopsis, “Office politics turns into a real-life survival of the fittest when a group of co-workers are forced into a sick game of kill or be killed by sinister forces who lock down their building.” Expect the comedic stylings of Gunn to mesh with the more savage edge of McLean for one roller-coaster of a ride.
“The Belko Experiment” stars John Gallagher, Jr., Tony Goldwyn, Adria Arjona, and Melonie Diaz. The film will be released in theaters March 17, 2017. Watch the debut trailer below.
