There's nothing wrong with the narrative as such; watching some monster murder a bunch of people is pretty much what you turn on a horror movie to see. The problem is that in this case neither the monster nor the victims are remotely interesting.

It's just a shame that The Lazarus Effect takes a viable premise and lively cast and simply flatlines them.

The characters in this forgettable piece of horror schlock can "bring back" all the dead dogs and dead people they want; just please, please don't bring me back. I don't want to go back.

Despite a talented cast, "Lazarus" is a sub-par horror film taken from spare parts of more successful films.

It never answers the most important question: how did this film get a theatrical release and not go straight to DVD? Truly, some things man was not meant to know.

The Lazarus Effect merely coasts by on a very thin script that is really just a placeholder to get to what is obviously its larger purpose: to frighten the audience so much that we forget that we're watching a bad movie.

David Gelb's new film is so dependent on the classic standbys of the genre, and so slight in every other regard, that it immediately draws attention to just how creaky they've gotten over the years

Given the low-budget film's bottle-episode feel, horror fans could've gotten extra mileage out of a disorienting and original psychological treatment.

Thanks to Duplass's 'regular guy' appeal and Wilde's ability to play the girl-next-door with the same aplomb as possessed siren, The Lazarus Effect proves believable enough to be entertaining but a little too bland to leave much of a scar.

The script gets less adventurous as it goes along, slowly shedding every intriguing idea and character detail for an utterly conventional final act.

The Lazarus Effect is a scary movie that pokes around with some big questions, but never really goes far enough to say anything.
October 16, 2015
Nothing fresh is brought to the screen and the stars end up treading water with well-worn cliches.
August 12, 2015
With solid performances, The Lazarus Effect simply doesn't rattle as many cages as it wants to, try as hard as it might.
June 18, 2015
For all its talk about bringing life back to animals and humans, "The Lazarus Effect" simply doesn't have any to spare for itself.
June 17, 2015
This is a remarkably inert movie: unscary, unexciting, and so obvious that it announces how obvious it is going to be in advance.
May 31, 2015
An incoherent catalog of worn-out horror movie clichs with a story that makes no sense and goes nowhere.

Lazarus gets sloppy in a hurry.
April 16, 2015
...the film's few sparks of originality and charisma are stamped out by a script and a director who refuses to take any genuine chances with the subject material.
March 27, 2015
The film, which runs a scant 83 minutes (and that includes the opening and closing credits), feels like it's just getting going when it abruptly ends.

Very little life here.
