An obsessive psychologist attempts to reprogramme her subconscious mind, but when her actions become increasingly uncharacteristic she fears her experiment is dangerously out of control.

“The Holly Kane Experiment is a finely directed and produced movie, with Sands showing he is capable of crafting something that is brooding and suspenseful”

Infernal Cinema 

"Father-son duo Mick and Tom Sands deliver a taut, intelligent thriller that injects the moribund genre with a much needed dose of originality"

The Edge


“For fans of thrillers that really do make you feel like your brain has been hit with a hammer, The Holly Kane Experiment is a film for you”

Pissed Off Geek


“The film illustrates the horror of how a woman’s vulnerability can be manipulated by a man in a position of power. It is much to the credit of both Mick and Tom Sands that they manage to examine such issues with great sensitivity, particularly whilst a gripping, psychological thriller plays out in front of us"

Paul Thomas Bell


"An unexpectedly robust and feminist attentiveness to the manipulative tactics employed by men"

St. Louis Magazine

“The Holly Kane Experiment subliminally pushes out the true intention of the plot and turns massively psychosexual. Once true intentions are made light, a thick film of filth just washes over that’s subtle, yet poignantly subversive”
