Storyline

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. Written by heatmiser73

Yet another remake
26 September 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I understand that film making is a business and needs to be profitable.

But in recent years there has been a steady decline in making a film because it has a great 'original' story.

Instead we have a plethora of, reboot/remake, as a guarantee of box office success.(or at least not loose money)

So you now have a glut of 'reboots' that bear only the most superficial resemblance, to their classic namesakes.

reboots of Star wars, independence day, magnificent 7, spider man (ok I liked the spiderman ones) but so many remakes/reboots for no other reason that cash in on the name.

With few exceptions the reboots are substandard, ersatz, low grade copies of the classic forebears.

Sadly this film is no exception. The med students experimenting with 'after death' experience can have all the cgi and modern fandangos you like.

See the original and that was a great story with great actors.

As with most reboots, imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but is certainly no guarantee of quality.

Mediocre, watch once never again (unlike the original)
