Lazareth Review: A Nuanced Apocalypse Mostly Works

A fierce woman protects her nieces on a remote homestead in the aftermath of an apocalyptic virus. Lazareth takes an intimate and nuanced view of the worst-case scenario with moderate success. The characters’ seclusion forces a reckoning when outsiders interrupt a carefully crafted isolation. How do you react to strangers when curiosity and lust overcomes fear? The pieces don’t quite fit together from a common sense and believability standpoint, but the human drama central to the narrative is fascinating to behold. Willing suspension of disbelief goes a long way here.
