Editorial Reviews

A neuron scientist and her husband discover a black-and-white 16mm film in the basement of a dilapidated hospital. The film documents underground experiments on a part of the human brain called the sylvian fissure in an attempt to gain insight into the forbidden territory an invisible reality achieved through neither life nor death. Obsessed with this surreal concept, the surgeon tries to reconstruct what she saw by recreating the experiment...starting with her own daughters!

Remember the good old days of J-Horror? When Japan was cranking out horror movie hits like The RIng, The Grudge and Infection. Well, the Sylvian Experiments tries to bring back those days. But, unfortunately, it fails. The pacing is too slow and there aren't really any genuine scares in this latest release from the land of the rising sun.

It looked like the storyline of this movie was going somewhere, but it's like the bridge to nowhere. In addition, it does also get somewhat confusing. Save your money for something else.
