It’s typically frustrating when acclaimed documentary filmmakers make the leap to fiction. After all, not everyone can mix up the real and make believe as well as Werner Herzog. Even Errol Morris, Joe Berlinger and Barbara Kopple had trouble making the switch. Plus, we need those great documentarians to make more great documentaries. But, alas, they need to make some money, too. I like David Gelb a lot, and I love his breakthrough, Jiro Dreams of Sushi, so I’m reserving most of my judgment of his upcoming horror film, The Lazarus Effect, until I see it. And even if it’s as bad as it looks, I’ll still be hopeful that the filmmaker made enough cash to deliver another nonfiction gem. The Lazarus Effect, which shouldn’t be itself confused for a doc from a few years ago about HIV and AIDS in Africa, seems to be a mix of Pet Sematary and Luc Besson’s Lucy. The former because it’s about a team of scientists dumb enough to be working on a way to bring dead animals back to life (have they no “Frankenstein” or any of its descendants in their world?) and the latter because when they resurrect their fallen friend (Olivia Wilde) she has increased neural activity and has superpowers stemming from her mind. At least, that’s what I’m getting from the movie’s trailer, which can be seen below.
