Ellen Page and her motley crew are about to take the science of the afterlife to an even darker place in “Flatliners,” which got a chilling first trailer today from Sony Pictures.
The movie stars Ellen Page, Nina Dobrev, Diego Luna, Kiersey Clemons, and James Norton as five medical students who become obsessed with discovering what really happens after death. They begin an experiment to stop their hearts for short periods of time in order to trigger a near-death experience and discover the truth about the afterlife. As the experiments lengthen, each student is haunted by phantoms of their past, and the film descends into the nightmare of their darkest fears and regrets.
“Flatliners” opens in theaters September 29.
