It’s been a busy week for the Flatliners-like sci-fi horror The Lazarus Effect: Monday we saw the first official image, and the next day came the sinister official poster, and all the while we have been promised a trailer as well.
The trailer has now arrived, and its a good one for horror fans. The tone is pretty intense and claustrophobic, and the overall atmosphere is pretty creepy, with the strong looking characters and some interesting moments of spine tingling terror. Yes many will immediately think Flatliners when watching this, but what a classic film to use as a basis for a new horror about coming back from the dead. Right now The Lazarus Effect is looking like a really strong contender for one of the years better horror films.
Check out the trailer below.
The screenplay was written by newcommer Luke Dawson and Jeremy Slater (who wrote the screenplay for Josh Trank’s upcoming Fantastic Four reboot).
David Gelb directs, and the cast includes Olivia Wilde, Mark Duplass, Evan Peters and Donald Glover.
The story follows a team of research students that discovers the secret to bringing subjects back from the dead — however, their actions result in a series of sinister consequences.
#EvilWillRise in theaters on February 27th when THE LAZARUS EFFECT opens in the U.S.!
