Just yesterday we saw the first poster and image from ‘The Lazarus Effect,’ the latest horror flick from Blumhouse Productions, the folks who brought you ‘Insidious’ and last year’s ‘Oculus.’ We were already sold on the film based on the cast alone, but seeing this first trailer really seals the deal. A film in which Mark Duplass and Donald Glover bring a creepy Olivia Wilde back from the dead? We’re totally there.

One of the upcoming horror films that’s definitely on our radar in 2015 is ‘The Lazarus Effect,’ a new film from Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Productions—the same folks behind ‘Paranormal Activity’ and ‘Oculus’ (as well as awards season favorite ‘Whiplash’). Their latest film has a pretty outstanding cast, including Olivia Wilde, who is featured in the first photo and poster, along with her very black and very terrifying eyeballs.

"We're doing it right now," barked Mark Duplass when I suggested that he should teach a class on how to get a film made in today's fractured system. Duplass has been writing, directing and producing a steady stream of movies since 2005 that includes 'Cyrus,' 'Jeff Who Lives at Home,' and this week's new release, 'The One I Love.' What's remarkable about this run is that his movies have never put up <i>huge</i> numbers at the box office -- the indie hit 'Safety Not Guaranteed' grossed just over $4 million in theaters -- yet his movies are profitable enough that he gets to keep making movies. What are Duplass' secrets? Here, Duplass breaks down, step by step, how to stay sustainable in today's Hollywood.

Mark Duplass is an interesting fellow. It's not really accurate to describe him as "famous" -- even he admits that he can walk around unbothered pretty much everywhere, and that's exactly the way he likes it. It was only in 'Tammy' -- a movie that he has a lot of opinions on why it didn't work -- did he start to feel the pangs of fame. And he didn't like that feeling one bit and wants no part of your 'Guardians of the Galaxy' or Marvel or 'Star Wars' type movies. Well ... that is unless, of course, someone actually asked him to do one of those types of movies.
