THE LAZARUS EFFECT will be screening at FILM4 FRIGHTFEST on 31st August 2015 before making its way to Digital HD on October 5th followed by DVD and Blu-Ray on 19th October 2015 through Lionsgate UK.
THE LAZARUS EFFECT follows a group of researchers led by Frank (Mark Duplass; Safety Not Guaranteed) and his fiancée Zoe (Olivia Wilde; Tron: Legacy), who’ve achieved the unimaginable – bringing the dead back to life. After a successful, yet unsanctioned, trial on a newly deceased animal, the team is ready to unveil their breakthrough to the world. When the university learns of their underground experiments, their project is unexpectedly shut down.
Frank, Zoe and their team (Donald Glover; Community, Sarah Bolger; The Spiderwick Chronicles and Evan Peters; X-Men: Days of Future Past, American Horror Story) take matters into their own hands, launching a rogue attempt to recreate their experiment, during which things go terribly wrong and one of their own, Zoe, is horrifically killed. Fuelled by terror and grief, Frank pushes them to do the unthinkable: attempt to resurrect their first human test subject. Initially, the procedure appears a success, but the team soon realizes something is wrong with Zoe…
THE LAZARUS EFFECT is directed by David Gelb and stars Olivia Wilde, Mark Duplass, Donald Glover, Sarah Bolger, Evan Peters and Ray Wise (Twin Peaks, Robocop).
