Following the poster debut and the first trailer that arrived last month, Blumhouse Productions has released the second trailer for The Lazarus Effect. This thriller boasts a cast full of actors who aren't normally associated with the genre, including Olivia Wilde, Mark Duplass, Donald Glover, Evan Peters and Sarah Bolger. Described as an homage to Flatliners, this thriller follows the consequences of bringing someone back from the dead.
The Lazarus Effect follows a group of researchers led by Frank (Mark Duplass) and his fiancée Zoe (Olivia Wilde) 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. Take a look at the latest footage from The Lazarus Effect, arriving in theaters nationwide February 27.
