This movie really had no effect on me. It wasn’t really that scary (except that dog standing over Olivia Wilde just staring at her was a little creepy) and it had a fantastic cast that really wasn’t used well. Mark Duplass is one of my favorite actors but even he was underused in this film. Sarah Bolger is super cute, but for her to be a documentation character in the movie, she sure had a much bigger role than the others. Evan Peters is also really good and his role was reduced to being a snarky e-cigarette user. I also feel like this movie stole from the film Lucy, where the main characters brain power is increased and all of a sudden becomes psychic and telekinetic. I think the Lazarus Effect’s goal was to scare, but it really didn’t have much of an effect on me at all, unless boredom was it’s aim. Keep this dead body of a film dead, let’s not revive it.
