With solid performances, The Lazarus Effect simply doesn't rattle as many cages as it wants to, try as hard as it might.

Dissolve (USA)


Despite an intriguing opening and an overqualified cast, The Lazarus Effect can't shake a been-there/resurrected-that vibe.

Los Angeles Times


A tense, efficient medical thriller best enjoyed sans microscope.

New York Times


[A] risible mix of pseudoscientific hokum and supernatural freakouts.
