The Lazarus Effect (2015)
Critic Consensus: The Lazarus Effect has a talented cast and the glimmer of an interesting idea, but wastes it all on insipid characters and dull, recycled plot points.

Critic Reviews for The Lazarus Effect
Given the low-budget film's bottle-episode feel, horror fans could've gotten extra mileage out of a disorienting and original psychological treatment.
I would have loved to see more from the filmmakers, daring to fail while staking out some new terror incognita instead of just going through the motions of an experiment for which we already have the results.
Audience Reviews for The Lazarus Effect
Just entertaining enough not to be boring. It was not scary at all and the story was a little far fetched. It provided a few laughs and that's it.
Olivia Wilde stars in the supernatural horror film The Lazarus Effect. A university study goes horribly wrong when one of the researchers dies in a freak accident and is revived using an experimental procedure. Wilde gives a solid performance, and so does her co-star Sarah Bolger. Also, the film does a nice job of building suspense and tension. But, the writing's a little weak and isn't sure what direction to take the plot: as it's unclear whether the resurrected character is demon possessed, lost their humanity, or something else. Yet despite its weaknesses, The Lazarus Effect manages to deliver some good scares.
Meh. Not the worst horror film I've seen but not very good either. I'm not going to lie, this film had some serious potential...could've been much better.
