Set in a dystopian world, Spiderhead is a haunting psychological thriller with touches of comedy, telling the story of two inmates in the modernized prison of the brilliant visionary, in which his experiments on two subjects, namely Jeff (Miles Teller) and Lizzy (Jurnee Smollett) become twisted when Abnesti’s experiments begin to push the boundaries and set the limits of free will altogether.

The official synopsis reads: “In a state-of-the-art prison run by brilliant visionary Steve Abnesti (Chris Hemsworth), inmates wear a surgically attached device that administers doses of mind-altering drugs in exchange for commuted sentences. There are no bars, cells, or orange overalls. In Spiderhead, imprisoned volunteers are free to be themselves. Until they aren’t. Sometimes they are a better version. Need to lighten up? There’s a drug for that. Can’t find the words? There’s a drug for that, too.”

“But when two subjects, Jeff (Miles Teller) and Lizzy (Jurnee Smollett), bond, their path to redemption takes a more intricate turn as Abnesti’s experiments begin to push the boundaries of free will altogether.”
