Fearing death is a huge fear and people would love to know what happens when you die.
What if you could find out? That’s what happened way back in 1990 in Flatliners. Medical students did near death experiences to try to solve that huge question. The only problem was that these experiments had dark consequences that put their lives in jeopardy.
So now it’s 2017, why are we bringing up this movie that happened 27 years ago? Because we have a sequel in the mix. Flatliners 2017 follows 5 medical students that are again asking this question. They start off easy enough with Courtney (Ellen Page) asking Jamie (James Norton) to help her with something. As it turns out she wants him to stop her heart for one minute to find out what happens after a person dies. Dying quickly becomes like a drug for them and the other scientists (Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev, and Kiersey Clemons) when things start going seriously wrong.
The film is a sequel with the only announced returning character as Kiefer Sutherland.
Flatliners releases September 29, 2017.
