THE LAZARUS EF­FECT

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Reviews -

re­leased 19 oc­to­ber 2015 | 15 | Blu- ray/ DVD

A glam­orous col­lec­tion of sci­en­tists stum­ble on a way to bring peo­ple back from the dead in this Blum­house hor­ror. Nat­u­rally there’s some­thing very wrong with them.

The cast is starry, but the char­ac­ters are thin­ner than dis­count loo roll. The lab makes for an ef­fec­tively creepy set­ting, but jump scares and rote ideas are the or­der of the day, while the science vs re­li­gion de­bates feel half- hearted at best.

Ex­tras Mak­ing Of; fea­turette; deleted scenes. Jor­dan Far­ley

Egg whisks: must be han­dled with care.
