A brand new clip has just been released from upcoming sci-fi horror The Lazarus Effect. Taking its influences from the classic Flatliners, the clip see’s Olivia Wilde wake up on an operating table, asking if she had just died.
The clip nicely shows the moody atmosphere of the film, and it looks rather good, don’t you think?
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 LAZARUS EFFECT opens in U.S. theaters nationwide on February 27th, 2015!
THE LAZARUS EFFECT follows a group of researchers led by Frank (Mark Duplass) and his fiancée Zoe (Olivia Wilde) 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 dean of their university learns of their underground experiments, their project is unexpectedly shut down and their materials confiscated.
Frank, Zoe and their team (Donald Glover, Sarah Bolger and Evan Peters) 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. Fueled 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. As her strange new persona reveals itself, the team quickly becomes stuck in a gruesome reality. They are no longer faced with the question of whether they can bring someone back to life- but rather, the wrath of her return.
