The Lazarus Effect featurette, with Olivia Wilde and Mark Duplass

Here's an interesting featurette for Blumhouse's latest supernatural hoedown, THE LAZARUS EFFECT, which has commonly been referred to as "Pet Sematary meets Flatlines." (Mostly it's me referring to it that way.) In the video below, you'll see real-deal doctors examining the phenomena of life after death and the folly of playing god. A priest even gets into the act!

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 (Donald Glover, Sarah Bolger and Evan Peters) 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.

THE LAZARUS EFFECT hits theaters February 27th.
