There are terrible zombie movies, then there's complete crap like this. Black eye makeup and terrible looking fake blood does not a zombie make.

(2010) The Terror Experiment
POLITICAL HORROR THRILLER

Low budget straight-to-rental movie with C Thomas Howell and Judd Nelson in minor roles that has something to do with a militia man's personal grudge against the gov't by planting top secret government toxins on top of a government owned building so that he can unleash it for it's not quite revealed how he even obtained iit in the first place. Once he unleashes the chemical toxins, they vaporize itself which upon breathing some can turn some into ghouls/ zombies. There's also a gov't cover-up theme to it which is absoultely nonsense. By looking at the big picture, it looks like that the movie was made in a week as a cash grab since some viewers will watch anything these days. I unfortunately happend catch this on one of those movie channels in which I was able to waste time recording it onto a recordable VHS and then use a fast forward button while playing before reusing the tape again by recrding another movie.

The story isn't too bad, but it's more of a sci-fi movie, so not really exciting somehow.

i'm not one to shun a good b-flick but when the basis of the plot revolves around a premise w/ a flaw so glaringly obvious it's hard to get into movie even after accepting the predictable angles and sophmoric acting. **spoiler alert** if the virus was designed to defeat an army by casing them to turn on each other, why were there so many infected still running around? once you get that thought in your head the whole movie goes from a sloppy b-flick to just plain ridiculous.

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.

Former military man Eric (Dunbar Merrill) feels America is on the wrong track, so the only way to make it right is to unleash a deadly toxin in a federal building that turns people into ravenous, crazed creatures who attack anyone because their adrenaline is heightened and they feel everyone is the enemy.

I'm sure there's more to this film than that, but I ended up fast-forwarding through the majority if it, starting when I saw C. Thomas Howell's horrible mustache. Seriously, it looked like they got it from a joke shop.

Absolutely horrible. I could only watch half of it because it was so bad.

The Terror Experiment would-coulda-shoulda been better than this. The basics are in place for a decent Horror/Thriller picture, but the entire production feels cheap, uninspired, incomplete. The plot flows easily enough, butt the action is dull, character development is nil, the acting is atrocious, and the pacing is poor.

This one was just an average zombie film, lacks the budget of A-list star movies but still does a decent job of entertaining. After a disgruntled veteran unleashes a virus in an office building in order to expose a government secret, things do not go as planned. A group of uninfected survivors then attempts to escape the quarantined building and get to safety before it's too late. For a dollar rental at Redbox you cannot go wrong and good for a rainy day; otherwise skip it.

It's not really the best of movies but when there is nothing else to watch. It's better then nothing.

This film consists of multiple types of scenes, some of which are remarkably well filmed and directed, others being cheesy and predictable. With a similar basis as "Rec" you won't have to think hard on what is going to happen next. Few characters are convincing, and the lines seem to be forced and unnatural. Despite a few unfortunate let downs, this film does the Zombe genre justice, giving yet another perspective on the world of the infected.

True to many undead movies, this one also, annoyingly, revolves around one man looking for a family member. Once again, the chance of survival of this family member is 0%, yet they persist to endanger the lives of themselves, and everyone around them.

Aside from the less appealing factors, the film does seem to improve as it continues, and altogether it is not that bad. I'd give it a 3.5 / 4 out of 5.
