The Lazarus Effect sticks to using predominantly one small room as its home for horror. It focuses in on a tight-knit group of scientists who are researching and performing controlled experiments involving the resuscitation of freshly deceased lifeforms. The process is comprised of injecting a specially designed serum directly into the brain of the subject with a robotic arm equipped with a large needle. The group manages to bring an animal back to life but when a wrench is thrown into the gears and their progress is obstructed they end up rushing through another experiment. This leaves a scientist mortally wounded and the survivors with moral quandaries: should they bring them back and if they do, will they ever be the same?
Eden Lake is story without the supernatural. No aliens, no vampires, no zombies. The only monsters here inhabit this small town on the outskirts of the woods. They look like us, but do not be fooled- there is no telling what they are capable of. Don’t mess with them.
