Five medical students, obsessed by what lies beyond the confines of life, embark on a daring experiment: by stopping their hearts for short periods, each triggers a near-death experience - giving them a firsthand account of the afterlife.
Stranded after a tragic plane crash, two strangers must forge a connection to survive the extreme elements of a remote snow-covered mountain. When they realize help is not coming, they embark on a perilous journey across the wilderness.
A just paroled white neo-nazi and his ruthless girlfriend kill a cop and take an African-American family hostage. Meanwhile the supremacist leader who oversees his criminal empire from behind bars, is not happy. Inspired by real events.
As Carl Black gets the opportunity to move his family out of Chicago in hope of a better life, their arrival in Beverly Hills is timed with that city's annual purge, where all crime is legal for twelve hours.
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
This movie is NOT a sequel to the 1990 movie. It is a remake, a re-imagining, or a version of the previous movie and has no other connection to it at all. Although Kiefer Sutherland appears in both versions, he plays two different characters. See more »

Science fiction is gradually becoming a golden egg for production studios and usually attached to comics and superheroes blockbusters. When a scientifically perplexing motion picture is out there, it will intrigue you to go to the movie theater and take it as an opportunity to think and analyze. I didn't watch the first movie but the second one, the remake, had this premise. The cast was interesting; Ellen Page and Diego Luna both have astonishing career filmography. The film starts OK, but just when you get into the core subject - the experiment
it falls down miserably. What was supposed to be a Sci- Fi feature
film turns into a commercial horror garbage. We were supposed to watch a young team seeking for an answer to their essential question. Honestly, I didn't think they will ever do, but they did! And the answer was, I don't want to use exaggerated words, but it was really ... inconceivable and silly.
Even for those like me who didn't watch the original, this one will distract your mind from considering so. It just failed to deliver on all levels.
3/10. And I'm being generous.
