I'm not really sure why this has such a high rating, but I'm assuming it's down to the lack of viewers. The idea of this film is bizarre, at best. The film as a whole is under-developed and, because there wasn't really much time devoted to allowing the audience to begin to know the characters, there's very little emotional attachment. Given how easily the protagonist is swayed to kill, it seems almost as though he was waiting for an excuse. He'd been dating his girlfriend for less than a day when she died and yet he was so utterly destroyed by it that he turned to murdering other people to revive her. This theory he has developed to bring sentient beings back from the dead is never really fully explained, the only thing the audience is given is some garbled scientific nonsense, despite the fact that it is the basis of the entire film and deserves a much more thorough explanation. The ending was laughable and a little pointless. Overall, it seems that the film is simply an indirect stab at the lack of morality behind research into cloning and other 'Frankenstein-esque' scientific experimentation.
