The Lazarus Effect Review - 1 Star
Olivia Wilde and Mark Duplass play a couple of doctors working on a serum to resurrect patients who die on the operating table. They do it to a dog. It works. Olivia has an accident, so he does it to her. But somehow she’s different. “The Lazarus Effect” follows the cheap horror formula - one set with a couple of exteriors. Lots of dark hallways and a few bad dreams. Needles and knives... the better to impale you. Plus a small cast. Does it deliver what it promises? Same old, same old. Is it entertaining? Reminds me of “The Re-Animator,” just not nearly as good. Is it worth the price of admission? Skip it, unless you are desperate to see Olivia Wilde in anything.
