Any person who gets the demonic eyes will make you want to turn away the moment you lay your eyes on them, but it’s definitely different once for Olivia Wilde as she gets raised from death in “The Lazarus Effect.” Read on for further details.
Blumhouse Productions is one of the most watched out studios out there that have managed to recreate the real eeriness that horror movies could truly bring. “Insidious,” “Paranormal Activity,” “The Purge” are among three of their most successful suspense-horror franchises that have managed to dominate the box office. Now, they are cooking up something for everybody to show on Valentine, and it is not going to be entirely pretty. The irony of having a horror movie shown in time for the month where love is supposed to thrive just brings the excitement of deviation clear for viewers, both coupled and not. This year, they are bringing in the horrific wild side of Olivia Wilde into the big screen as she stars in “The Lazarus Effect.”
Screen Rant posted the official synopsis of the movie.
Olivia Wilde and Mark Duplass star in “The Lazarus Effect” as members of a group of medical students, who are working on an experimental treatment for resurrecting the dead on deceased animals – a treatment that seems to work, at that. However, when one of their kind (Wilde) is killed in a lab accident, she ends up becoming the first human tested. And the results are (you’ll never believe it) not altogether ideal.
It’s quite obvious that things would not really turnout great in the end, especially when you mess with the laws of nature. Bringing a dead back to life is a definite no-no, and we’ve seen tons of mediums depicting that. When director David Gelb was asked regarding the saturation of such film, he answered that it was somewhat based on the 1990s film “Flatliners.” However, the helmsman promises that they will be delivering a different take — “a really unique take on bringing someone back from the dead.” (via SlashFilm)
“The Lazarus Effect” is set to hit theaters on Feb. 27, 2015.
