At this point, you can do nothing but tip your cap to Jason Blum, the guy knows to make money off the horror genre. He has dipped his fingers in franchises like Paranormal Activity, Insidious, Sinister, The Bay, and The Purge among other solid movies. Yeah, some may not be the best, but us fans will continue to see them as long as he keeps churning them out and they keep making money. His next project, The Lazarus Effect, looks like it could be a good horror film that’s led by a damn solid cast – check it out.
When a team of research students mapping the human brain accidentally kills one of their own, they unwittingly unlock a deadly force by reanimating their colleague. Fighting for their own lives, the team must contain their colleague in the lab before she is unleashed on the world.
Here’s the first image starring Olivia Wilde with one horrific look:
As well as the first official poster:
Most of the time, when we get a horror film set in the first two, maybe three months of the year, they’re trash. They just aren’t good or scary. But I’m on board for The Lazarus Effect right now. It was smart by releasing anything on it just over a month before it hits theaters. And the first trailer was pretty solid. It set up the story without really giving any kind of scare away, which exactly why we go and see horror films.
The Lazarus Effect rises in theaters on February 27th, 2015. Starring Mark Duplass, Olivia Wilde, Donald Glover, Evan Peters, and Sarah Bolger.
