THE BELKO EXPERIMENT is a US thriller in which office employees are ordered by an unknown voice over the company's intercom to take part in a deadly game.

Violence

There is frequent strong bloody violence in scenes in which adult characters are shot, stabbed or beaten, often accompanied by blood spurts. In one scene a woman repeatedly chops at a man's head with an axe, whilst in another scene a man repeatedly smashes a Sellotape dispenser against a man's face; both scenes are accompanied by strong injury detail.

Injury detail

Some scenes show victims' bloody head wounds, with brain matter exposed.

There is frequent strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker', 'c**ksucker') throughout. The film also contains strong verbal sex references, and scenes in which adult characters smoke marijuana joints.
