Watch: Olivia Wilde Rises from the Dead in 'The Lazarus Effect' Clip

Directed by David Gelb (“Jiro Dreams of Sushi”), the film centers around a group of scientists led by Frank (Mark Duplass) and his fiancée Zoe (Olivia Wilde) who discover a way to bring the dead back to life.

When the dean of their university learns of this, the project is shut down immediately. Frank, Zoe and their team of researchers decide to take matters into their own hands, and try to recreate their experiment in secret. However, things go terribly wrong, and Zoe is horrifically killed. The scientists are able to bring her back to life, but they quickly learn that something is terribly wrong with Zoe.

In the first clip from the film, we see Zoe (Wilde) rise from the dead as her fiancé (Duplass) and terrified team of scientists look on.
Also starring Donald Glover, Evan Peters and Sarah Bolger, “The Lazarus Effect” opens in theaters on February 27. Watch the clip below and tell us what you think:
