Flatliners Review


Four Medical students experiment on "near death" experiences that involve past tragedies until the dark consequences begin to jeopardize their lives.

Are you afraid to die? Kiefer Sutherland isn’t. He’s an ambitious, charismatic medical student who persuades classmates Julia Roberts and Kevin Bacon to take part in a reckless experiment. To see if there is life after death, they will kill themselves: temporarily shut down ("flatline") their heartand brain functions to briefly experience clinical death. After Sutherland survives the first experiment, the others flatline for increasingly longer intervals. But their horror begins when they realize that although they’ve come back alive… they haven’t come back alone. Flatliners is a chilling suspense thriller of obsession, fear and redemption that will take you across the line to a place where terror lives forever.
