There are no bars, cells, or orange overalls. In Spiderhead, imprisoned volunteers can be themselves. Until they aren’t anymore. Sometimes they are a better version. Need to get easier “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), form a bond, their path to redemption takes a trickier one Twist as Abnesti’s experiments begin to expand the limits of free will altogether.”
