I’m sure you’ve already caught the trailer on TV, but in case you haven’t heard The Lazarus Effect is coming! Arriving in theaters February 27th from Relativity, The Lazarus Effect is a horror/thriller which was written by Luke Dawson and Jeremy Slater. The film directed by David Galeb also stars Evan Peters, Olivia Wilde, Donald Glover,Mark Duplass and Sarah Bolger. The film is produced by Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity, The Purge, Insidious).
With multiple blockbuster horror flims to Jason’s credit, I’m sure The Lazarus Effect will have a huge effect(pun intended) on audiences nationwide.
Synopsis:The Lazarus Effect follows a group of researchers led by Frank (Mark Duplass) and his fiancée Zoe (Olivia Wilde,) who’ve achieved the unimaginable- bringing the dead back to life. After a successful, yet unsanctioned, trial on a newly deceased animal, the team is ready to unveil their breakthrough to the world. When the dean of their university learns of their underground experiments, their project is unexpectedly shut down and their materials confiscated. Frank, Zoe and their team (Donald Glover, Sarah Bolger and Evan Peters) take matters into their own hands, launching a rogue attempt to recreate their experiment, during which things go terribly wrong and one of their own, Zoe, is horrifically killed. Fueled by terror and grief, Frank pushes them to do the unthinkable: attempt to resurrect their first human test subject.
