Okay, I’ve asked on other resources before, and no one could help me out, so I really hope someone here can. Problem is, it’s been over a decade since I’ve seen this, so my memory’s crapped out on most of the content of the movie. I’ll try to describe what I remember.
I’m certain I saw it on the Sci-Fi channel in the late ’90s or early ’00s. Color movie, seemed pretty low-budget (think like Asylum Films), English language. I remember the movie had a group of people trying to escape this place, where different rooms seemed to affect them differently. The one scene I remember pretty clearly, a man and a woman enter this room with those round yellow smiley faces on the walls. The two people had been pretty serious, but suddenly start laughing uncontrollably. Through sheer will, they leave the room. The camera pans across the room following them, but then pans back as they leave and the smileys have turned sinister-looking (think something similar to this (http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m54/chrisnc2475/evil_smiley.jpg).
I remember at the time, thinking that this movie reminded me a lot of Cube, only the rooms seemed to have emotional traps and weren’t cubical. At the end of the movie, if I’m not totally mistaken, it turns out it was some sort of alien experiment or something. Like I said, my memory is fuzzy on this, so I may be way off about the ending.
Please tell me this was an actual thing, and not something I dreamed up (and if it’s something I dreamed up, I need to write this screenplay out). I hate having vivid imagery in my head of the room with the smileys, but not knowing where the hell I saw it. I’m not totally crazy, am I?
