The plot for The Lazarus Effect sounds a bit like a rehash of Flatliners, but the first trailer thankfully shows that while there are echoes of Joel Schumacher’s 1990 movie, it does want to be something in its own right too.
The very short synopsis simply says ‘The film follows a group of medical students who discover a way to bring dead patients back to life.’
The movie centres around Mark Duplass and Olivia Wilde, who discover how to resurrect people. After she dies, he decides to use the technique on her, but as you’d expect in a horror movie what returns isn’t quite the same as what left.
Evan Peters and Donald Glover also star in the movie, which is out in the US at the end of February, although it’s not clear when it’ll arrive in the UK.
