We’re just a few weeks away from dying for fun in the Flatliners reboot, and a new trailer really sets the atmospheric tone for what it’ll be like to peek into the afterlife.
Much like the 1990 original, Flatliners follows a group of medical students who start experimenting with near-death experiences to get a peek at the afterlife. As we see in the footage here, it’s a rush at first, but the deeper they go into the darkness the harder it becomes to pull back out. As the first film made clear, this premise holds a ton of potential, so here’s hoping the modern-day spin can capitalize on it. If nothing else, they certainly get the look right in the footage here.
The film, which serves as a sequel/reboot to the original, is directed by Niels Arden Oplev and stars Ellen Page, Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev, James Norton, and Kiersey Clemons.
Flatliners opens September 29.
