A horror genre heavyweight, a star-studded cast, and a quirky premise full of potential for high-profile horrors should be a match made in heaven, but in 2015 The Lazarus Effect turned out to be hellish in the wrong way.
The only front on which the film found success was commercially, with the low-budget $3.3 million in Relentless Supernatural Terror raking in its modest budget ten times at the box office and more, but director David Gelb’s half-baked efforts absent from all other obverse.
A 15 percent Rotten Tomatoes score and a 23 percent user rating is nothing short of despicable, and to call it a disappointment would be flippant given that we’re talking about an Olivia Wilde-headlined Blumhouse production starring Mark Duplass, Donald Glover and Evan starred Peters, Sarah Bolger and Ray Wise in supporting roles.
Wilde plays the fiancé of Duplass’ medical researcher, whose team has defied the laws of nature to find a way to revive the dead. Rightly shut down for violating the line of acceptable science, things take a turn for the worse when the actress Zoe is killed… and you don’t have to think too long to find out what happens next.
Even if it was panned by audiences and critics alike, The Lazarus Effect made a whopping profit the first time, and now, ironically, it’s back up to plague the streaming charts. According to FlixPatrol, the villainous backfire has become one of the most-watched titles on Starz this weekend, with the spooky season finding subscribers in a very forgiving mood at being willing to expose themselves to something so hideous.
