Reboot, remake, sequel? I’ve given up trying to work it out. There’s certainly a horror element shown in this second international trailer for Flatliners.
I touched on whether to classify this new Flatliners film as a remake or sequel when the first trailer dropped. I’m still none the wiser. What’s evident from this second international trailer though, is a greater emphasis on the horror angle.
Five medical students become obsessed with finding out what happens when we die. Being able to momentarily die and experience near-death-experiences, the group push the boundaries of their research further and further. But as each experiment becomes more and more dangerous the consequences of their actions become evident as sins from their pasts are brought back to haunt them.
Starring Ellen Page, Diego Luna and with Kiefer Sutherland reprising his role from the 1990s film of the same name, Flatliners is in cinemas in the U.K. and North America from September 29th. Other regions should check IMDB for release dates.
