What Is The Connection Between ‘The Lazarus Effect’, The Bible And The Batman Comics?



This movie was in production for a couple of years, under a diffent name: Lazarus. I guess that was too obvious so they changed to a bit more obscure The Lazarus Project. 

As you probably know Lazarus of Bethany, also known as Saint Lazarus or Lazarus of the Four Days, is the subject of a miracle attributed to Jesus in the Gospel of John, in which Jesus restores him to life four days after his death. This is the main theme behind all these movies, and we have seen that a lot of movies have biblical refrences that are sometimes hidden and sometimes right there in the open. Just consider the names of the characters in the popular TV show “The Walking Dead.

The connection to Batman is the following: Ras al Ghul used his pit to make a character called Lazarus. Of course, that character has the ability to change his life span and practically live forever. ]\

And now lets talk about the actual movie. Frank and Zoe are medical researchers that are on a brink of a monumental discovery. They are trying to make a potion that’s supposed to help people who are in a comatose condition. However, they will stumble on something more significant, something that the human race has searched for its entire existence…

Viagra was discovered the same way, so there’s a real merit to the basic story in this movie, but the execution seems a bit clumsy and too boring….
