Illustration for article titled Sharpen your #2 pencils... to stab in your neighbors eye the Exam trailer is out!

We're dying to see a screening of this film in the states. The Exam shows what happens when you lock eight people in a room and tell them it's a test. Bloodshed! Watch what happens in this new trailer.

We love weird conspiracy films! Check for it at your local art house theaters and on the festival circuit.



Eight talented candidates have reached the final stage of selection to join the ranks of a mysterious and powerful corporation. Entering a windowless room, an Invigilator gives them eighty minutes to answer one simple question. He outlines three rules they must obey or be disqualified: don't talk to him or the armed guard by the door, don't spoil their papers and don't leave the room. He starts the clock and leaves. The candidates turn over their question papers, only to find they're completely blank. After the initial confusion has subsided, one frustrated candidate writes 'I believe you should hire me because...,' and is promptly ejected for spoiling. The remaining candidates soon figure out they're permitted to talk to each other, and they agree to cooperate in order to figure out the question: then they can compete to answer it. At first they suspect the question may be hidden in their papers like a security marker in a credit card, and they figure out ways to change their environment to expose the hidden words. But light, liquids and other plans all come to naught. Soon enough, the candidates begin to uncover each other's background, prejudices and hidden agendas. Tensions rise as the clock steadily descends towards zero, and each candidate must decide how far they are willing to go to secure the ultimate job . . .

Sweet. I've been wondering what happened to this movie.

Though this got me kind of nervous since I'm taking the bar exam in two weeks. Hopefully I won't have to shoot people to pass.
