During the experiments on the pig and the dog, it is stated that the Lazarus drug needs to be injected into their temporal lobes. However when they are trying to bring Zoe back the needle is in fact inserted into her frontal lobe. The temporal lobe on a human is farther back and lower. See more »
I've long stopped going to horror movies expecting to get scared, or see anything remotely decent. Instead I view them as comedy movies, trying to entertain myself by how bad the films are, so it's pretty safe to say my expectations when seeing a horror movie are about as low as it gets and yet "The Lazarus Effect" still left me astonished by just how bad, uninteresting and not even remotely scary it was. There was nothing new or unique about the movie, and literally the only aspect of the movie that could be considered scary (if you're not already desensitized to those, like most people) were the jump scares, and even those were predictable.
I've been disappointed by a lot of movies, but this is thee first time it was bad enough that I actually took the time to write out a review.
