Big spoilers ahead for spider head

In the film, Hemsworth plays pharmaceutical genius Steve Abnesti, who runs an experimental prison facility where prisoners can commute their sentences if they agree to a drug test. But these mind-altering drugs can be dangerous, and when one prisoner, Jeff, falls in love with another, he must find a way to save them both.

But what happens at the end of the film? What is Steve’s real agenda? What happens to Jeff and Lizzy? What will become of the Spiderhead facility? Let’s break down the film’s many twists and turns.

Spiderhead ending: Why did Jeff and Lizzy do to get locked up?

After a party, Jeff got in his car and drove away drunk while escorting his friend and wife Emma. Although he claimed he was cool to drive, he clearly wasn’t and ended up crashing the car headfirst into a tree, resulting in the deaths of both passengers. Jeff was convicted of two counts of first degree manslaughter.

Although we tell Jeff that she was jailed for robbery, we later find out that Lizzy was actually sentenced to jail for forgetting her baby in a car for three hours while going to work, resulting in her child’s death led.

What does Darkenfloxx do?

Darkenfloxx is a drug that is discussed frequently in the film as it becomes part of Steve’s study to test the “love drug” N-40. It causes extreme mental and physical stress. When Heather’s MobiPak is flooded with the drug, she commits suicide in front of Steve, Jeff and Mark.

Spiderhead ending: What is Steve’s real agenda?

Steve tells Jeff and the other inmates that everything they do is governed by an invisible committee. In reality, that’s not true. The entire facility is actually just a testing lab for Steve’s personal company, Abnesti Pharmaceuticals, which means Steve was lying all along.

Furthermore, Steve’s ultimate goal is not to test different drugs to make the world a better place, but to test a single drug called B-6 or its test name OBDX (Obedience). This drug would force people to do anything they are told, even if it goes against their beliefs. Every inmate is on B-6, so Steve talked them all into allowing and acknowledging the IV and essentially letting him use it as a guinea pig.

But B-6 has a problem and that is that the user won’t kill or damage something they love, which is why Steve keeps trying to get one of the inmates to fall in love with N-40 and then that person forcing them to administer Darkenfloxx to make them stick to hurting/killing someone they care about, proving that B-6 creates universal obedience. Steve wants to transform the world into a place where people follow the rules and can be completely controlled at all times.

Why does Steve present himself as N-40?

through spider head, You may have noticed that Steve ramped up his N-40 levels while he was alone. It’s not explicitly clear why Steve does this, but I assume it’s related to B-6. If he loves himself enough, he would not commit suicide or injure himself if anyone ever tried to use B-6 (OBDX) against him. At least that’s my current theory.

What is the meaning of the bingo card?

Steve uses the bingo card to name his medications and also to keep track of any medications he has already successfully proven to work with B-6, meaning he knows people will agree to them to take because B-6 gives him control over each person. It’s basically like Steve trying to see how far he can push people with B-6s to test their obedience. Because of this, B-6 and N-40 are the only two on the map without stars because Steve hasn’t gotten them to work the way he wants them to yet.

What happens at the end of Spiderhead?

In the film’s final act, Jeff convinces Mark to betray Steve. Mark becomes increasingly suspicious of Steve’s actions as the film progresses, culminating in Heather’s suicide. Afterwards, Mark secretly gives Jeff access to Steve’s MobiPak controls (and adds Steve’s flask of Darkenfloxx).

Realizing that Jeff is in love with Lizzy, Steve tries to force him to give her Darkenfloxx. Jeff refuses and eventually turns the tables on Steve by using the admin app on the phone to mess with Steve’s MobiPak instead of Lizzy’s. He tells Steve that Mark has left the facility and the police will take him there.

Steve also admits that Lizzy and Jeff have actually been free for a while, but Steve kept them there anyway.

A skirmish ensues between the two men, with Steve eventually gaining the upper hand and flooding Lizzy’s pack with Darkenfloxx. Lizzy tries to strangle herself with her belt while Steve overpowers Jeff. Seeing Lizzy on the brink of death, Jeff gets a burst of strength and pushes Steve away from him, stealing his keys and rushing to rescue Lizzy. Jeff unlocks her MobiPak and just in time takes out all the bottles.

Slowly recovering (but his vials were also all flooded and damaged, and he no longer has the keys to remove the MobiPak), Steve goes on the intercom to tell all the inmates that Jeff and Lizzy are threatening to ruin their entire program and stop everything the inmates oppose. Luckily, the two manage to fend them off and escape to freedom.

Meanwhile, Steve also tries to escape and makes it to his seaplane when authorities arrive at the facility. But because he’s still battling the effects of all the drugs at once, Steve ends up crashing his plane onto a nearby island. We can assume that the ensuing explosion will kill him.

Is Spiderhead different from the short story Escape from Spiderhead?

Yes, the film makes some notable changes from the original George Saunders Escape from Spiderhead. In the short story, Steve is actually Ray Abnesti and Ray is trying to force Jeff to administer Darkenfloxx to Rachel (Lizzy’s character) in a similar experiment we saw in the film.

Seeing Jeff refusing to comply, Ray leaves to get a warrant that would force Jeff to do as he says. Left alone, Jeff administers Darkenfloxx to himself instead of Rachel, killing himself while under the influence of the drug. A voice in his head tells him he can still recover from this if he wants, but Jeff ultimately chooses to die so he can never hurt anyone again.

Does Spiderhead have a post-credits scene?

No, there is no post-credits scene at the end spider head.
