THE LAZARUS EFFECT follows a group of researchers led by Frank and his fiancé Zoe who've achieved the unimaginable - bringing the dead back to life. After a successful, yet unsanctioned, trial on a newly deceased animal, the team is ready to unveil their breakthrough to the world. When the dean of their university learns of their underground experiments, their project is unexpectedly shut down and their materials confiscated. Frank, Zoe and their team take matters into their own hands, launching a rogue attempt to recreate their experiment, during which things go terribly wrong and one of their own, Zoe, is horrifically killed. Fueled by terror and grief, Frank pushes them to do the unthinkable: attempt to resurrect their first human test subject. Initially, the procedure appears a success, but the team soon realizes something is wrong with Zoe. As her strange new persona reveals itself, the team quickly becomes stuck in a gruesome reality. They are no longer faced with the question ...

I could tell you were a whack job from your first opening statement. I'm surprised someone as religious as yourself would even waste your time on the magic and sorcery that is known as the movie theater. Isn't it against your "religion" to participate or intake into the witchcraft that is modern television? It is evident and obvious to all that you are a fool, but you must really be a Nimrod (BIBLICAL WORD) if you believe that the film-makers used the name "Lazarus" to imply that their film has anything to do with the bible, Jesus, or even good Ole Lazarus himself who was resurrected by HIM. It is done deliberately because popular culture (which a religious zealot can't know anything about) associates the name Lazarus, with something that has been brought back to life. It is a name used in science, and in fiction (do you read any books beside the bible?) Please do us all a favor and do not go see any more movies - you shouldn't be allowed to poison our air . You had to be the only person who looked at this film and thought it might be about the bible. Like my poor grandmother who went to "Deliverance" in the 1970's because her and her neighbor believed it was a bible story. True story.
