Check out the UK trailer and animated poster for THE LAZARUS EFFECT

Courtesy of Lionsgate, we've got the new UK trailer and animated poster for The Lazarus Effect, which will debut at Film4 Frightfest August 31st, followed by a home entertainment release on October 5th.




THE LAZARUS EFFECT follows a group of researchers led by Frank (Mark Duplass; Safety Not Guaranteed) and his fiancĂ©e Zoe (Olivia Wilde; Tron: Legacy), 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 university learns of their underground experiments, their project is unexpectedly shut down. 
Frank, Zoe and their team (Donald Glover; Community, Sarah Bolger; The Spiderwick Chronicles and Evan Peters; X-Men: Days of Future Past, American Horror Story) 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. Fuelled by terror and grief, Frank pushes them to do the unthinkable: attempt to resurrect their first human test subject. Initially, the procedure appears a success, but the team soon realizes something is wrong with Zoe. As her strange new persona reveals itself, the team quickly becomes stuck in a gruesome reality. They are no longer faced with the question of whether they can bring someone back to life - but rather, the wrath of her return.
THE LAZARUS EFFECT is directed by David Gelb and stars Olivia Wilde, Mark Duplass,Donald Glover, Sarah Bolger, Evan Peters and Ray Wise (Twin Peaks, Robocop).
