Editorial Reviews

A beautiful young stem-cell researcher, Elizabeth Barnes, joins a secret research group attempting to develop a stem-cell based universal healing serum. Despite opposition from the project leaders she quickly develops a serum that can bring the dead back to life - but with horrific results. When one of the project's security guards is murdered and then re-animated, Barnes and her team must contend with a man, who at first, is like a child but quickly becomes something much, much more.

3.0 out of 5 stars LIFE IS PAIN October 20, 2012
This film is more akin to "Re-animator" than Frankenstein. Dr. Elizabeth Barnes (Tiffany Shepis) is being interviewed by Agent Wollstonecraft (Shane Dean) and Agent Godwin (Esther Ellsworth) in an attempt to give us clever names. Elizabeth is a microbiologist. She joins a group of elite scientists to perform illegal embryonic stem cell research.

They create a serum that cures everything and then experiment on Dave, (Scott Anthony Leet)a dead patient, or formerly dead patient who posed for the cover. He develops unusual powers...aka Gary Mitchell for you Trekkies. The group of doctors have disagreements to add some internal conflict to the script, because simply bringing dead people back to life is never enough to hold our attention.

The film was interesting but lacked entertainment in the dry dialouge.

Parental Guide: F-bombs, no sex, no nudity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Future cult classic. June 1, 2012

This is one of those movies that never made main stream theater. Overall a very good movie with high quality acting and good special effects. I feel this is going to be a future cult classic

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, Well Done Movie March 21, 2012
3.5 stars of 5.
The acting, cinematography, special effects, and production were very good allowing one to overlook leaps of faith in the story.
I didn't know anything about this movie except what the tv guide blurb revealed when I pressed the info button on the remote. I wasn't expecting this kind of movie. The opening of the movie is the kind that draws you in immediately, just like Scream. Then you fill in the back story. What if you did create life; and, it had unforeseen, messianic consequences.
The story was an fascinating twist on the belief that the development of our technology has outstripped the development of our morality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life Is Pain September 27, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Just brilliant. Mad scientists in our era have been replaced with unethical organizations, conflicted teams of flawed beings who open up cans of worms that cannot be closed. Imagine the excitement when the team in this movie is able to bring a man back to life, and the thrill that gradually turns to horror as his incredible learning skills begin to be augmented by psychokinesis, omniscience, a Christ-complex, a high comfort level when it comes to murder, and a philosophy that "Life is Pain." This one knocked me out of the water, and I hope it will do the same for you!

3.0 out of 5 stars The Frankenstein Syndrome... December 12, 2011
I saw "The Frankenstein Syndrome" for the first time today (2am 12/12/2011). The big "what-if" for me:

"What if it is more than a man, able to utilize more of his brain than the rest of us"?

Well, the few of us that have watched this movie found out!

True, it was lacking in the area of special-effects, but that really didn't detract from the film (in my opinion).

Honestly, I don't ever plan on buying it, but found it entertaining, nonetheless!

I rate "The Frankenstein Syndrome"...3 stars!
