“The Belko Experiment” (2016)

This film’s premise is rife for social commentary and satire. Why the film elected to go with the boring and generic route is beyond me. While I was watching the film, other possibilities of what could’ve been in the film were buzzing around in my head, possibilities you’d think professional writers might’ve come up with, especially in the ways in which characters could’ve been dispatched. You could’ve utilized office supplies to murder or disfigure characters, like choking on Post-It Notes, stepping on thumbtacks, strangling someone with a mouse chord, or breaking someone’s hands with a keyboard. On top of that, the characters are boring and forgettable, and the film’s attempt at dark humor just fall completely flat. It’s just a waste of promising potential.
