Editorial Reviews

In a shocking act of domestic terrorism, a deranged veteran detonates a biological weapon inside a crowded Federal Building. His purpose: To expose the government's secret development of a toxic gas that instantly affects the human adrenal system, causing men, women and children to become inhumanly aggressive and violent. Now the virus is spreading. The building is quarantined. And on the upper floors, a small group of uninfected survivors must band together to get out alive. But how do you escape a raging nightmare that cannot be stopped?

I've decided to not attack all the prior reviews, those are their opinions, therefore, here's mine.
From the synopsis, I could tell it'd be yet another independent zombie flick in the veins of 28 Days/Weeks Later (albeit in a confined space), so I knew not to expect perfection. Still, for what I watched, it really wasn't that bad.
Story was simple, a terrorist with an extremist patriot complex believes he sees political hypocrisy in his own nation and wishes to see something like a "reset" (as I'd call it) by exposing deadly secrets in a government building. Those secrets being a deadly virus that changes the mindset of a person, making them highly paranoid and overtly aggressive. Yes, it's basically a total rip-off of 28D/WL, but it didn't stop me from enjoying. In fact, before all the action really starts, you get to see all the little things in normal lives, including that of a divorced couple (along with a small touch of humor before total insanity breaks loose), play out.
There weren't that many jump moments, but what there was was pretty decent since it went very well with the story. Some pretty crazy death scenes, a few twists here and there, and one particular crazed zombie that seems like a dimwit rip-off of a zombie from Land of the Dead (remember the one that figured out how to use a machine gun? Watch this and you'll see which one's the rip-off).
Acting, like that of any low-budget indie, isn't perfect by any standard, but it's still better than some I've seen (2012: Doomsday always comes to mind as the worst indie film I've ever seen in ever single aspect), so there's a plus. Some people, sadly, do die off (in which I mean I wish they hadn't, but that wouldn't be good for the death quota in making a film like this, would it?

This is a bit cheesy. I guess they didn't have much for a budget maybe? It's like a bunch of bad movies combined together. anyways you could say its a rip off 28 days/weeks, a bit like quarantine without the camera sickness, and maybe some others that I can't think of. I'd recommend you skip it unless your that bored and curious.

Terror Experiment is what you would expect for most low-budget Redbox thrillers. Once I realized that the featured actors were C. Thomas Howell, Judd Nelson, and Robert Carradine (Revenge of the Nerds), I knew this would be a typical B-Movie, but still decided to give it a shot.

The problem with Terror Experiment is that there's really nothing memorable about it. Most of the cast offer "I'm just here for the check" performances. The writing isn't anything special, and the story isn't terribly original. For the most part, it's a ripoff of "28 Days Later" with hints of "Jacob's Ladder" thrown in.

There are also plenty of plot holes. The biggest of which is that there's a building jam-packed with federal employees on Christmas Eve. Several times during the start of the movie, it's revealed that the date is December 24th. Apparently, not even the guy who carts mail around the office gets the day off.

The film was shot well, and the color correction was fine. It looks better than most straight-to-DVD movies, but unoriginal story lines and generic acting performances make it obvious why Terror Experiment was never in theaters. As a diehard fan of low-budget horror flicks and thrillers, I actually don't regret renting this movie. But I wouldn't suggest that anyone buy the DVD without watching it first, and I wouldn't suggest it for casual horror fans.

Several of America's federal buildings have fallen under attack by embittered war veterans, who unleash a deadly toxin that turns normal people into psychotic killers. THE TERROR EXPERIMENT is a muddles mess of a film that can never decide if it wants to be a disaster movie or a zombie shocker. It throws out references to everything from Area 51 to the attacks on 9/11 to the military's experimental drug use in Vietnam in a vain attempt at social significance that is undermined by the overall unintelligence of the script. The extra money that was used to sign Jason London and C. Thomas Howell would have been better spent coming up with a more inventive plot, but instead we are left with a typically bland revision of George Romero's THE CRAZIES as set in a federal office building. The real test becomes trying to make it to the end of this dreadful experiment.
