The Frankenstein Syndrome
Top Customer Reviews
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.
"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!
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.
But I found I was drawn into the character development, excellent acting, story line....and then the science fiction/horror component. Loved the use of a sparse setting, lending better to the story than just being dazzled with fancy camera action, and no substance. The sparseness of the setting lent nicely to the overall tone of the story. Very entertaining, worth my money/time and doing this review. And I liked the characters!
Highly recommend this to all those who like science fiction, horror films!!!

This ended up being really entertaining. The dialogue between the scientists seemed well acted and somewhat realistic. I would say this is worth a buy or at least a rental.Published on October 23, 2013 by hphill
