Spiderhead is an American psychological thriller from 2022 about a brilliant visionary who runs a state-of-the-art prison.

Directed by Joseph Kosinski (Top Gun: Maverick; Tron: Legacy) from a manuscript written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick after George Saunders’ New Yorker short story ‘Escape from Spiderhead’. Co-produced by Tommy Harper, Chris Hemsworth. Oren Katzeff, Eric Newman, Jeremy Steckler and Geneva Wasserman.

Full synopsis:
In an advanced prison house run by the ingenious visionary Steve Abnesti (Chris Hemsworth), inmates carry a surgically attached device that administers doses of mind-altering drugs in exchange for transformed sentences. There are no rods, no cells or orange jumpsuits.

In Spiderhead, incarcerated volunteers are free to be themselves. Until they are not. At times, they are a better version. Do you need to lighten up? There is a medicine for it. Are you missing words? There is also a medicine for this.

But as two subjects, Jeff (Miles Teller) and Lizzy (Jurnee Smollett), form a connection, their path to redemption takes a more twisted turn as Abnesti’s experiments begin to push the boundaries of free will completely …


Spiderhead will be available for streaming on Netflix on June 17, 2022.
