About the Movie
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 heart and 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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Flatliners is a stylish, eerie psychological horror film laced with wit, a movie that thrives on its characters' guilty secrets and succeeds on the strength of the director Joel Schumacher's flair for just this sort of smart, unpretentious entertainment.
Rotten: We're supposed to think, ''Gee, will they make it back?!'' By the third or fourth close call, we're not exactly sweating.
Rotten: It's a movie about daring that dares nothing.
Fresh: A cautionary tale that ends along fairly traditional horror-sci-fi lines, Flatliners is a strikingly original, often brilliantly visualized film from director Joel Schumacher and writer Peter Filardi.
This movie is amazing. If you like the thought of seeing yourself, or anyone else, after death, then definately watch this. Julia Roberts and Kevin Bacon are amazing in this film. Definately worth the money, I think.
well put together
this is a real good thriller . its about three doctors who try to have a near death experience. when they do; something comes back with them. i would suggest this movie to someone who loves thrillers.
This was such a great movie. It asks the ultimate question: "What happens when we die?" The acting was exceptional as well.
