When I saw the trailer for Flatliners, I was so surprised because I was not a fan of the trailer for the original movie. But the current trailer really blew my mind away because it was so good and it made me want to watch the movie right away.  My initial thoughts were that this movie was going to be really cool, visually, and that the storyline would be very interesting.

Flatliners is a 2017 American science fiction psychological horror film directed by Niels Arden Oplev and written by Ben Ripley. The film is a remake of the 1990 film directed by Joel Schumacher.

The 2017 Flatliners premiered on September 27.  The cast for the movie includes: Ellen Page (Courtney), Diego Luna (Ray), Nina Dobrev (Marlo), Kiefer Sutherland (Nelson), James Norton (Jamie), Kiersey Clemons (Sophia), Beau Mirchoff (Brad Mauser), Daniela Barbosa (Haley)

The movie is total sci-fi\fantasy, it got creepy in the second half of the movie and the audience  reacted with noisy approval. This movie kept my heart beating and I was on the edge of my seat because there were so many suspenseful parts of the movie. The plot was very  interesting  and yet some scenes were predictable. The cast is incredibly good, and the overall standard of the picture is absolutely good.

There were definitely spots in the movie that I got the chills. For example, it was terrifying when the cast came back from the dead.   I would recommend seeing the movie with your friends. The 2017 version feels current, the music is better, the filming angles are better and the modern day effects created by improved technology make this version better than the original.  Flatliners captured my attention due to its intriguing and unique plot and I will definitely see it again! Overall I would give the movie a 8/10 because, even though the movie was visually excellent, I wish it would have given the audience a little more information on the background of the characters in the movie.
