Ellen Page stars as Courtney Holmes, the ringleader of a new band of young doctors that begin experimenting with death in an attempt to see what happens when we pass on.
Much like in the 1990 film, at first the experience is exhilarating, but when the visions and terrors of the afterlife start haunting them in the real world, blurring the wall between life and death, it becomes a nightmare.
The afterlife feels far more mystical, and Page’s Courtney is hiding a darker reason for engaging in the dangerous endeavor than simple thrill-seeking.
Directed by Niels Arden Oplev (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo), the movie also stars Diego Luna (with a sweet mullet), Nina Dobrev, Kiersey Clemons, and James Norton.
Sutherland starred in the original film alongside Julia Roberts–if anyone knows the perils of toying with death, it’s him.
