"Kudos to director Steve Franke for crafting a credible and entertaining horror-thriller with "SERUM." The film holds it's own against mainstream theatrical horror films such as "SAW", "HOSTEL" and the thematically similar "DAWN OF THE DEAD." However, where these others may excel in graphic violence (not my favorite element), "SERUM" beats them with humor and plausibly absurd circumstances that catch the viewer by surprise while delivering an equal jolt of shock and comedy. It's a notable effort and evidences a bright future for director Franke given perhaps a larger budget or a less formulaic structure. All told, well worth watching."
Just plain fun

"This film was just plain fun. You can't take it too seriously. A wacky doctor (and this guy was out there) drills into people's heads to find the answer to immortality. When he uses it on his nephew things go horribly wrong...of course! It was funny (a guy has to stay in college another year after he spends his tuition money on breast implants for his girlfriend - classic!) and it had some really great gory scenes. The pacing was good -- the movie moved along well -- and the acting was good. I'm not saying it was the best movie ever, but I enjoyed it. And for a low budget movie, it was better made than most."

"I love movies but am not a big fan of horror films. However, many of my students love them and tell me I should see this one or that one, which I do from time to time. I watched "Serum" and was greatly surprised. Naturally, there was the gore and violence that I do not normally like, but the film also had a story, which was refreshing. The filmmaker created an interesting plot and took time to develop the characters, which made you more invested in them. Obviously, it was a small budget film, but it didn't matter because you liked the characters and wanted to find out what was going to happen next. And, I thought the production value was better than many other independent movies I've seen."

"Maybe I'm burned out with movies with not much more than oodles of gore, but this one started off that way and ended for me that way: I turned it off after ten minutes. Just tired of this stuff from Hollywood."
