Story Summary: Drugs And Feelings

Spiderhead’s storyline is somewhat familiar. The story revolves around inmates who are given a once-in-a-lifetime chance to reduce or dismiss their sentence.


But it’s a price, in exchange for X, and a little bit of Arkham Asylum-ness blended to it all. In addition, all these inmates are being treated as subjects of voluntary experiments in exchange for a shorter prison sentence.

Hemsworth plays the role of the character, who has become aware of “the new drug and its capabilities of generating feelings of love”. Although, this ends up making him question “the reality of his true emotions.” Once he becomes aware of what is happening, he generates new questions like what is happening.

To get all answers he “sets out to discover the truth.” The twist in this? He’s not playing the role of the inmates. But rather the man who is running the penitentiary.

Full Synopsis Via Netflix

A state-of-the-art penitentiary is run by the brilliant visionary Steve Abnesti (Hemsworth). All the inmates have a surgical device attached that administers their dosages. The mind-altering drugs come in exchange for commuted sentences. Although there aren’t any bars, cells, or orange jumpsuits.

In Spiderhead, confined volunteers have the freedom to just be themselves. Until they are deprived of it. At times, there may be a better version hidden. Need to feel lightened up? There’s a drug to feel it.

Find yourself at a loss for words? There’s a drug made for that, too. But things get complicated when two subjects, Jeff (Miles Teller) and Lizzy (Jurnee Smollett), form a connection.

The path to salvation is filled with twisted turns. But, in Abnesti’s experiments things start to get pushed to their limits of free will altogether.

Based on George Saunders, The New Yorker short story.  Spiderhead, directed by Joseph Kosinski (TRON: Legacy, Top Gun: Maverick) can be described as a genre-bending and darkly funny psychological thriller. Which is written by Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick (Deadpool, Zombieland).
