The Gerber Syndrome review
23 May 2011 | by labanturSee all my reviews

I've seen this movie at SciFi London and i've enjoyed it.

Actually the subject it's not brand new but the way this guys treated it surprised me; they tried to make a real looking documentary not like paranormal activity or clover field.

I felt a sense of anxiety for the whole film.

Very good actors were they real actors?) and very effective music. I did enjoy the fact that there was very little gore or splatter scenes to give more space to emotions and the drama of a familiar tragedy.

There is a good beginning introducing you to the syndrome and to discover the main characters.

The rhythm drops a little in the central part and then there is an explosive ending.

I recommend it!
