“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.”
Now I’m going to hold my hands up right away and admit I haven’t seen the original 1990 ‘Flatliners’, which starred Kiefer Sutherland, Kevin Bacon, Julia Roberts and William Baldwin, so I watched this trailer without being able to compare against it. Having confessed on Twitter to this, the numerous replies I had telling me to watch it has swayed me to give it a shot.
The trailer gives us a good idea of who we’ll be spending most of our time with in the film, and towards the end of the trailer we get a real feel for what kind of tone to expect for the film as the repercussions of the gangs experiments start to to come to light.
This remake sports a strong cast, featuring the likes of Ellen Page, Diego Luna, Kiersey Clemons, Nina Dobrev, James Norton, and Kiefer Sutherland is even listed to make an appearance!
‘Flatliners’ hits UK cinemas 29th September!
