    And Jesus shrugged — John 11:35

    Maybe you noticed those silly subliminal flashes of “John 11” during the spoiler-happy trailer for The Lazarus Effect? It’s a strange way to manufacture menace. Now I’m no Bible scholar, but if memory serves correctly, Jesus cries when Mr. Lazarus croaks, uses his Jesus powers to raise him from the dead, and everything is hunky dory. Did I miss the chapter where the resurrected Lazarus goes around crushing heads? Did the trailer for Anaconda tease us with flashes of “Genesis 3:1?”

    I ask this because The Lazarus Effect tosses out some heady questions as it journeys from Flatliners to flatlining, my favorite being “If we bring a dog back from the dead, are we ripping him out of doggie heaven?” And for a while, it seems like it’s morphing into an interesting hybrid of Lucy and Carrie. But when it goes in for the kills and buries its resurrected head in a steaming quicksand of religious mumbo-jumbo, it leaves you feeling like you were just about to chomp into a juicy burger and the patty fell out. You’re right to expect more from this solid cast and Jiro Dreams of Sushi director David Gelb. I’ll give it this. It’s better than most PG-13 horror joints, it’s mercifully short, and a Vaper (is that the word for those people?) gets what he deserves.
