I loved 1990’s Flatliners, but I was young and dumb, and I couldn’t tell you if the movie was actually good or not (Rotten Tomatoes tells me it received mixed reviews). But the concept was cool, and it had a great cast (for the era) in Keifer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, William Baldwin, Oliver Platt, and Kevin Bacon. I thought about that movie a lot when I was a kid, because how cool would it be to hang out in the afterlife for 7 minutes and come back and report on your findings? It’s science! For a 13-year-old, that was a weirdly profound movie.

This remake, though? I dunno. I like the cast, but it’s decidedly B-level (no offense), and I’m not sure how I feel about a movie that stars both Ellen Page and Nina Dobrev together. What happened Ellen Page?! You were an Oscar nominee. You were in a Christopher Nolan movie! And Hard Candy. I mean, I love Diego Luna and I’m fond of Kiersey Clemens, but the trailer for Flatliners (2017) strikes me as a very disposable horror movie, the kind that might put up $20 million in its opening weekend and never be spoken of again.

But then again, maybe that’s what happened to Joel Schumacher’s 1990 version, too.
