After watching this movie (which for graphic scenes I fast forwarded) I made sure to explain to my daughter yet again, that this type of senseless crap happens all the time, and sometimes you have to say NO! I will not comply when you are either the victim, or even the possible person being asked to do what you know isnt right.

Children and Teens need to be aware that this happens. There is no excuse to listen to "some guy" on the other end of the phone, especially if they are asking someone to disrobe.

Milgram first described his research in 1963 in an article published in the Journal of Abnormal and Social Psychology, and later discussed his findings in greater depth in his 1974 book, Obedience to Authority: An Experimental View.
