Movie Review: Flatliners
Obsessed with death and the afterlife, Courtney-an intern at a hospital, convinces two fellow interns to stop her heart so that she can view what happens after someone dies. When they can’t bring her back in time, they call Ray to come and help. While he doesn’t agree with that they’ve done he continues to help them as others in this small group go up next to see what’s after death.
After death comes back for Courtney, things go from being a really good horror movie to a theme on forgiveness and being responsible for one’s actions. While I like this premise, it didn’t fit with the first part of the movie to me.
This could’ve been a classic horror movie but then got cold feet. Because of this, I wasn’t scared at all the last 30-45 mins of the movie and felt let down as the ending just sizzled away all the tension built in the first half.
My rating 2.0 stars out of 5
Andrea R. Cooper writes fantasy, paranormal, and historical romance.
Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
