Storyline

Inspired by the Stanley Milgram obedience research, this TV movie chronicles a psychology professor's study to determine why people, such as the Nazis, were willing to "just follow orders" and do horrible things to others. Professor Stephen Turner leads students to believe that they are applying increasingly painful electric shocks to other subjects when they fail to perform a task correctly, and is alarmed to see how much pain the students can be convinced to inflict "in the name of science."

Shatner and John Travolta
24 December 2008 | by (Dallas, TX) – See all my reviews

I've worked with Bill and ironically he doesn't remember much about the film. It was also John Travolta's screen debut even though Shatner's "The Devil's Rain" is usually mentioned as his first theatrical movie.

When I took psychology in college I remember reading about all of Milgram's experiments and then remembered the Shatner movie from my childhood.

The Milgram Society does show this on 16mm at their annual events but I've never been able to attend.

I do have a copy of the film after searching for many years. Feel free to email me at stompy@chaseclub.com
