A few days ago a trailer on YouTube caught our eye, and then we got the official details from BrinkVision on Stress Position, a psychological experiment thriller comedy heading our way at the end of August. As the tagline suggests, “How Bad Could It Be?”
Stress Position is produced by The Siblings, A.J. Bond and Amy Belling, as well as Jessica Cheung with the participation of Telefilm Canada. Check out a few stills, the trailer, and more below.
From the Press Release:
BrinkVision is set to release the award-winning, critically acclaimed psychological experiment thriller comedy Stress Position on VOD and limited edition DVD on August 26th. Stress Position is a genre-bending film about two close friends who make a bet to see which of them can withstand a week of psychological torture at the hands of the other.
Director A.J. Bond and longtime collaborator and friend David Amito designed personalized torture regimes aimed at breaking each other’s will but without causing any severe physical pain. Set entirely in and around an avant-garde torture chamber custom built in an isolated warehouse, the film captures the surprising trajectory of the experiment from both sides of the cell as the two friends play both victim and oppressor, not to mention actor and director.
A documentary? An experiment? Torture porn? What the fuck is Stress Position?
Inspired by a flippant remark about the treatment of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, filmmaker A.J. Bond made a bet with his close friend, actor David Amito, to see which of them could withstand a week of psychological torture at the hands of the other. What begins as a bizarre and darkly humorous experiment gradually spirals out of control, testing the limits of their friendship.
