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.

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

3.5 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.

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!

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.

If you saw the Lazarus Project and came away thinking it was as disappointing a piece of crap as I did, there is no more cause for sorrow, for I present to you, gracious ladies and gentlemen of the Amazon Marketplace a miracle of a film, Frankenstein Syndrome, which in every way meets and exceeds the expectations that the aforementioned embarrassment to the talent of Olivia Wilde set for itself and then spectacularly failed to meet. If you, like me, went to see the Lazarus Project and wondered why it is that Hollywood seems to have decided that some people in a studio named Blumhouse should have a sort of de facto dominance on the big screen as America's main source of horror, rest assured, the movie Frankenstein Syndrome long ago proved the indispensable value of independent horror. All the pretenses to actual philosophical thought that the Blumhouse people pussyfoot around in their very ratings-conscious way are actually met head on with brutal honesty here, rest assured. Compared, you see, to the main event of Frankenstein Syndrome, the Lazarus Project to me was nothing more than an unwanted distraction, a crumpled up napkin on the floor of the cinema, if you will, that I regret to say momentarily distracted me from the actual horror movie I was wanting to pay attention to. Blumhouse gang, please let me know when you get the Insidious franchise back on track, I'm tired of waiting.

This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. I bought it only because a friend of mine had a small part in it. The plot was predictable, the acting amateurish and overall it was just a terrible film.
