The Lazarus Effect

"If we're gonna be asking big questions, we have to be ready for the answers." Why anyone would want to mess with bringing people back from the dead after movies have already illustrated what a bad idea that would be is beyond me. But here we are with The Lazarus Effect, a movie that basically feels like a remake of Flatliners. Olivia Wilde and Mark Duplass star in the film about a group of medical students who have been experimenting with bringing animals back from the dead. And when Wilde ends up in a fatal accident, she becomes a prime candidate to be the first human trial, but the results are not good in the least. Also, does the title remind anyone else of this pivotal scene in Casper? Just me? Okay. Watch the trailer!

Here's the first trailer for David Gelb's The Lazarus Effect from Relativity Media:

The Lazarus Effect

The Lazarus Effect is directed by David Gelb (Jiro Dreams of Sushi) and written by Luke Dawson (Shutter) and Jeremy Slater (2015's Fantastic Four). Olivia Wilde, Mark Duplass, Donald Glover and Evan Peters play a group of medical students experimenting with dead tissue and the ability to resurrect it. But when an accident leads to Zoe's (Wilde) death, Frank (Duplass) decides to bring her back after a successful experiment in bringing back a dog seemed to go well. However, with Wilde's resurrection comes terror, fire and death. Relativity Media releases the film late next month on February 27th. Anyone interested?

Ahhh this trailer just gave me so much less hope for the new Fantastic Four.

"Let's show the whole movie in the trailer!" - Trailer order for The Lazarus Effect

Yeah I don't get why they basically showed the death of a supporting character in the trailer.

Flatliners 2.0

This could easily be the sequel to Pet Cementery, the book I mean

Why does the black man always gotta die?! Poor Donald Glover... Anyways, haven't seen Flatliners but this doesn't look good to me.

Haha noticed that too. Too bad we know how he dies. Now his character means nothing in the movie.

But isn't the whole premise of the movie that they bring the dead back to life...

The black guy dies "first or worst" it's a movie tradition!

Haven't seen Flatliners!? And on a movie site?! Get outta here & watch it!! 😉 Pretty good, all star cast, no idea how it aged.

I haven't seen it either. The trailer is extremely dated. 6.5 on IMDb... BUT the cast is enticing. Sutherland, Bacon, Julia Roberts, Oliver Platt... So torn...

Benjamin Hunter on Jan 8, 2015

Heh! As a person on a movie blog... I'd say it's mandatory viewing for you, if nothing but for the nostalgic/historic value. Definitely entertaining if nothing else. It's early 90's-riffic!!

Why do they always use the same typography and background texture for promoting these films. Sigh.

mark duplass could do a lot better than this.

It's a living.

Benjamin Hunter on Jan 8, 2015

Whoa.

Is it finished? I fell asleep there.

at least Olivia Wilde is sexy... I certainly wouldn't be interested in this if there isn't some sugar candy in it ... At least...

That first shot looks familiar.

NathanDewey on Jan 7, 2015

On a positive note the chemistry between Olivia Wilde and Mark Duplass should be decent since they worked together on "People Like Us"

Rob on Jan 7, 2015

Actually looks very good. Duplass is kind of blowing up?! I dig that.

I feel like I just watched the first 3/4 of the film
