In Flatliners, medical students experiment on “near death” experiences that involve past tragedies until the dark consequences begin to jeopardize their lives. 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.
Flatliners, which stars Ellen Page, is a follow-up to the 1990 cult psychological horror of the same name about a group of medical students who seek to find out the truth about the afterlife by subjecting each other to near-death experiences. The original film starred Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts and Kevin Bacon. Sutherland will appear in the sequel.
The trailer for the new film suggests it follows a similar plot to the original, with Page and her fellow students conducting experiments on each other that prompt dangerous paranormal experiences. James Norton (Happy Valley) and Diego Luna (Rogue One) are among the other cast members, while Niels Arden Oplev, who is best known for his work on the original Swedish adaptation of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, is on directorial duties.
