The Good, the Bad and the Undead

• The film starts off like any other horror film with a predictable plot, but surprisingly manages to entertain the audience until the end with its demonic twist.

• The movie features homage from old school horror like "Frankenstein" and "Exorcist", with equally religious and scientific references which makes it smart and refreshing.

• Though the film as a whole is not as scary as it could've been, the wild performance from Olivia Wilde will surely give you something to think about at night when it's dark and creepy.

• The film is great for horror fans to watch in groups or for a fun yet thrilling movie outing.


• The title is based on the biblical Lazarus of Bethany, a man who was resurrected by Jesus after being dead for four days.
