Flatliners

You haven’t lived until you’ve died.


Flatliners
Five medical students, obsessed by 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, which gives them a first-hand account of the afterlife (or at least, what their brains tell them is the afterlife). But as their experiments become increasingly dangerous, they are each haunted by the sins of their pasts, brought on by the paranormal consequences of trespassing to the other side. The film is based on the same source material as the 1990 version, but is a re-imagining rather than a remake.
