The first reviews are in for Columbia Pictures' "Flatliners" and critics have cleared any chance of the film surviving.
"A straightforward (and entirely unnecessary) rehash which proves utterly dead on arrival," one critic wrote.
The PG-13 film starring Nina Dobrev, Ellen Page and Kiefer Sutherland tells the story of five medical students hoping to gain insight on what happens when a person dies by experimenting with stopping their hearts for short periods of time to trigger a near-death experience. The dangerous investigation forces the character to deal with their sins front on all while experiencing the paranormal consequences of transitioning back and forth between life and death.
