FLATLINERS: STEELBOOK EDITION REVIEWED
“Flatliners” is a film that I tried to distance myself from after seeing the recent sequel/remake/cash grab. Upon returning to the Mill Creek recent release, I was confused. I appreciate Mill Creek getting creative with its packaging and its approach to the A/V Quality. But, I wonder why revisit this movie outside of basic tie-in logic? To say that this is a pointless Joel Schumacher movie is an understatement.
It’s a plot line that’s desperately in search of a movie. None of the actors really play well off each other, while Kiefer Sutherland feels like he’s channeling his father through a lot of the film. While the recent film plays with the concept more, this one does the best you could do in 1990. Hell, it pulled down a few Award nominations. Check it out, if you’re curious.

The Plot Thus Far
Medical students begin to explore the realm of near death experiences, hoping for insights. Each has their heart stopped and is revived. They begin having flashes of walking nightmares from their childhood, reflecting sins they committed or had committed against them. The experiences continue to intensify, and they begin to be physically beaten by their visions as they try and go deeper into the death experience to find a cure.
