THE LAZARUS EFFECT (2015)

#25 on the 2015 movie countdown is The Lazarus Effect. It starts out promising with a bunch of young scientists and a research grant go far beyond their intended experiments and bring a dog back from the dead. The corporation that is sponsoring them sweeps in and takes all their hard drives and records - but they come in after hours to continue their work. Poor Zoie (Olivia Wilde) accidentally electrocutes herself - so her desperate boyfriend attempts to bring her back - successfully but with far reaching consequences. Movie has echoes of Frankenstein and goes from something thoughtful to a very predictable as Zoie becomes an amazingly powerful monster. Scares are good but Lazarus Effect takes the path most travelled by and becomes a movie you've seen many times over.
