The Lazarus Effect movie quotes bring the thrills when a team of researchers test a serum to bring people back from the dead with horrifying consequences. The film was directed by David Gelb using a screenplay by Luke Dawson and Jeremy Slater. The Lazarus Effect opened in theaters on February 27, 2015.

In The Lazarus Effect, engaged couple Zoe (Olivia Wilde) and Frank (Mark Duplass), along with Niko (Donald Glover), Clay (Evan Peters) and Eva (Sarah Bolger), have developed the Lazarus serum which is intended to attempt to bring humans and animals back from the dead. They test the serum on a dog and find that while it does bring the dog back to life after death, further testing is needed. So they recreate the experiment but in doing so, Zoe is fatally electrocuted.

In a moment of panic having lost the woman he loves, Frank makes the unilateral decision to use the Lazarus serum on Zoe to bring her back to life. It is successful, however, Zoe seems different. Her strange and plain scary behavior, along with her claims that while dead she visited hell, soon lead them all to believe that their actions in playing god with life and death have some serious and horrifying consequences.

The Lazarus Effect hits theaters already buzzing with other great films such as Hot Tub Time Machine 2, Kingsmen: The Secret Service, McFarland, USA, and Fifty Shades of Grey.
