The Lazarus Effect - What You Need To Know

Supernatural slasher The Lazarus Effect comes to DVD this week and here is everything you need to know about it…


What’s The Plot?

We start with medical researchers Frank and Zoe, a couple who work side by side to assist coma patients and believe they’ve developed a serum that can bring coma patients back to life. To try out their serum, on a strictly unofficial basis, the pair invite their friends to help and they test it on a dog. The trial is successful, but, no sooner than they are ready to reveal their great discovery to the world than the dean of their university learns of their underground experiments and decides to shut down their project and confiscate their materials.

Desperate for their research not to go to waste Frank, Zoe and their team take matters into their own hands and launch a rogue experiment, an experiment that goes tragically wrong when Zoe is electrocuted and killed instantly. Stricken by grief Frank decides to take matters into his own hands and gives Zoe the serum, amazingly she returns to life, but they all soon realise that something is wrong with Zoe...


Who’s In It?

It’s got a cracking cast. Tron: Legacy and Rush star Olivia Wilde and The League’s Mark Duplass lead the way, with supporting turns from X-Men: Days Of Future Past’s Evan Peters, Once Upon A Time’s Sarah Bolger, Twin Peaks’ Ray Wise and Donald Glover, a.k.a Childish Gambino.
