Signs that I am getting old, I was about 12 maybe when the original Flatliners was released. I watched it repeatedly when it played on cable, primarily because well I have always had a thing for Kiefer Sutherland and Billy Baldwin wasn’t too bad either. But, Flatliners wasn’t one of the best or coherent films. So I question why the choice to remake it? Nonetheless they have and here’s the new trailer for the new version starring a way less attractive cast. (Sorry that was mean, but hey it’s me so…)
In Flatliners, five medical students, hoping to gain insight into the mystery of what lies beyond the confines of life, embark on a daring and dangerous experiment. By stopping their hearts for short periods of time, each triggers a near-death experience. As the investigation becomes more and more perilous, they are forced to confront the sins of their pasts, as well as contend with the paranormal consequences of trespassing to the other side.
The film stars: Ellen Page, Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev, James Norton and Kiersey Clemons. It’s directed by Niels Arden Oplev.
Flatliners (2017) opens September 29, 2017.
