Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that The Lazarus Effect is a horror thriller about a group of medical students who resurrect a dead woman, with unexpected results. There's lots of scary stuff and plenty of jump-shocks, plus blood, deaths, and some creepy hospital-type stuff (i.e. needles). Dead animals are shown and experimented on. Language isn't frequent but includes a few uses of "s--t" and other words. Two characters are a couple and are seen kissing, cuddling, etc. The female lead also briefly kisses another man, and there's a discussion about dental dams. One character smokes an electronic cigarette, to the others' annoyance, and there's some wine and champagne drinking. The movie has the same "don't play God" themes as classics like Frankenstein and The Monkey's Paw and could spur discussions about life and death.
A loving couple kisses. The woman also kisses another man. A discussion about dental dams.

"S--t" used several times, plus "ass," "d--k," "bitch," and "hell."
Basically the same theme as that of literary classics Frankenstein and The Monkey's Paw: Man shouldn't play God, trying to take control over life and death. There will be consequences.
