The opaque visionary Steve Abnesti ( Chris Hemsworth ) runs a prison that is as modern as it is unconventional. Not only are the inmates relatively free to roam the inviting grounds, but in return for reduced sentences, they undergo questionable experiments with mind-altering drugs that have a number of side effects.
As Abnesti influences the moods of his inmates, newcomers Jeff ( Miles Teller ) and Lizzy ( Jurnee Smollett ) grow closer. But are her burgeoning feelings really her free will, or rather the result of Abnesti’s ever-expanding experiments?

“ The Spider Head ” is probably one of the most anticipated Netflix films of 2022. On the one hand, this is due to the exciting premise, which goes back to a short story by the author George Saunders, but above all, of course, to the top-class team in front of and behind the camera. The screenplay based on the said template comes from the «Zombieland» and «Deadpool» authors Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick , who already in the trailer above also give the science-psycho-thriller a pinch of their usual (black) humor.
