Highly Suspect Reviews: ‘The Lazarus Effect’

  • by

Ok, so sure, if I was dating Olivia Wilde and she died, I’d probably commit all kinds of acts of hubris against man and God(tm) to bring her back to life too. This is essentially the plot of The Lazarus Effect, as a group of scientists develop a procedure to give new life to the dead. And nothing goes wrong at all and they all live happily ever after. The end.


Ok, no, that would be a pretty boring movie but perhaps no less boring than what this film brings us. Even with a cast like Mark Duplass, Donald Glover, Evan Peters and Sarah Bolger, there’s no getting around lazy horror filmmaking. Or is there? What if we came up with a procedure to reanimate dead horror tropes? Oh wait, Blumhouse Pictures already figured that technique out. With the expected results.

Join Chris and Diva (with Brian and J.C. cheering them on) for this review/crucifixion of this horrifying (but not in the way that they intended) collection of tired jump scares.
