With the forthcoming Flatliners, the Danish director Niels Arden Oplev has thrown out in film-making across the Atlantic for the second time.
The original Flatliners had Julia Roberts, Kiefer Sutherland and Kevin Bacon in the supporting roles, while Nina Dobrev (‘The Vampire Diaries’), Diego Luna (‘Rogue One’), James Norton (‘Grantchester’) and Ellen Page represent The new litter. The film follows the group’s dangerous experiments with prolonged cardiac arrest, which in the beginning is merely a way for renewed energy and knowledge. But as the number of minutes in death increases, the consequences begin to turn out.
The first trailer develops rapidly from a sci-fi youth movie to a horror tale with distorted images and illusions. It will be exciting to see if Neil Oplev delivers a solid, outrageous horror with more than just jumpscares to frighten the biographers.
Flatliners will be premiere in USA cinemas on September 28th.
