Audience Reviews for The Frankenstein Syndrome (The Frankenstein Experiment)


Picked this one up cheap because of the involvement of cute little Tiffany Shepis, and she's decent enough in it, but overall the idea of scientists playing in the realm of God didn't really blow my skirt up. It's watchable, but nothing all that extraordinary. Rental?

Dr. Walton (Ed Lauter), a wealthy man, is dying. So he enlists the help of some of the top doctors in the country to illegally make a serum from stem cells to re-ignite his dying organs. The youngest doctor, Elizabeth (Tiffany Shepis), agrees to help because he accepted her mother, who is also dying of cancer, to his treatment facility. At first, what turns out to be a prideful escapade for Elizabeth and the others soon turns extremely dark, as they play God with dead bodies, re-animating them, mostly with some valid success. Unfortunately they keep dying, until they bring back to life a man who has no memory of his past life, and must be taught over again how to eat, speak, and do everyday activities. However, their success soon turns to terror as he acquires newfound abilities - including telekinesis and mind-reading, and goes on a murderous rampage. This is a modern take on the Frankenstein fable, and it was a surprisingly good one. The acting was above most B-rated flicks, the effects were cool, and it didn't look like a low-budget mess. The story had me compelled to watch from beginning to end, even though I knew what was going to happen (it was all a flashback of Elizabeth giving a deposition to two FBI officers), but it was still intriguing to see how it all developed.
