Written by James Gunn (Slither) and directed by Greg McLean (Wolf Creek), this office set violent thriller made its world debut at TIFF.  One of our own said it delivered on precisely what it sets out to be: a gory, hilarious romp (review).  Which is exactly what I want from the brilliant minds behind the film.

The cast is nothing to sneeze at, either, starring 10 Cloverfield Lane‘s nice guy John Gallagher Jr., Sean Gunn, Michael Rooker, Adria Arjona, Tony Goldwyn, John C. McGinley, David Dastmalchian, Melonie Diaz, and Josh Brener.

The red-band trailer, below, ties everything together.  Not only does it set up the plot nicely, but hints at just how rough things are going to get for the poor employees. Talk about a rough day at the office.  Man, I can’t wait.

The Belko Experiment will be released in theaters on March 17,2017.

It at first seems to be an ordinary morning on the job for a group of Americans working for a not-for-profit in a modern office building in Colombia. After noticing that their Colombian colleagues have not arrived for work, office worker Mike (John Gallagher, Jr.) spots some unfamiliar security guards entering a large hangar nearby. Moments later, an icy voice comes over the building’s PA system and calmly explains that the employees must kill a certain number of their co-workers — if not, they will be killed themselves. While the boss (Tony Goldwyn) tries to calm the troops, Mike belatedly realizes that something truly sinister is going on — and when metal doors come sliding down on all the building’s exits and windows, it becomes clear that friends and colleagues are now suddenly enemies in a bloody and brutal battle to the death.
