Jason Blum, the producer of The Purge, Paranormal Activity and Insidious is back with yet another horror film ‘The Lazarus Effect’ but this time directed by a documentary filmmaker David Gelb (Jiro Dreams of Sushi). Recently, the trailer of the film has been released that suggests the plot which seems interesting for the horror genre.
Lazarus Effect stars Evan Peters, Olivia Wilde, Sarah Bolger, Mark Duplass and Donald Glover as medical students who are in some kind of ambitious project to bring the dead back to life. However, stupid this may sound; we can still imagine some horrifying moments.
The story goes like this, as the group of young scientists work on an experiment in which they try to bring dead animals back to life using a serum codenamed “Lazarus,” the character of Olivia Wilde (Zoe) dies in an accident. So, the others now have no option but to replicate the procedure on Zoe’s corpse.
As a result, Zoe rises from the dead but is it the real soul of Zoe or something else inside her body? In fact, the trailer reveals it all, but I guess the director still has some mystery in his sleeve. Anyways, the film is set for a February 27 release.
