Yes I fancy it. Where do you live? grin I am old enough to have seen it first time around too!

The original was such a clever film, it lingered in my head for days after. After seeing some truly awful remakes like Footloose, Dirty Dancing - I'm kind of scared though to try another................

FeedMeAndTellMeImPretty Wed 27-Sep-17 21:53:42

yes I don't remember the original being quite so disturbing. Can't wait to watch it!

AlternativeTentacle Wed 27-Sep-17 21:57:45

James Norton. Interesting.

The original one was good, I didn’t even know there was a remake happening. Might give that a whirl! Thanks for sharing the trailer smile

lavender I am in Reading grin you?
Summer I didn't know it was a remake shock

Nooooooooooo, they remade flat liners.

MusicToMyEars800 Wed 27-Sep-17 22:48:02

Think I have to go and look up the original, I can't believe I didn't know that it was a remake.

Pandoraphile Wed 27-Sep-17 22:50:12

God I remember the original from my childhood! Scared the proverbial out of me.

Might have to take dd (15) to see it this weekend grin

ShizzleYoDrizzle Wed 27-Sep-17 22:50:14

Wow, they're really scraping the barrel when they re-makes that old nonsense.

'Red alert. Crash team needed for Hollywood. They've run critically low on fresh ideas'.

Saw the trailer when we saw "It". I commented to my husband that it looked like someone had ripped off the storyline of Flatliners, and then the title came up at the end of the trailer.

Not sure why it needs a remake. The original was good.

BikeRunSki Wed 27-Sep-17 22:57:39

I loved the original. Not sure I'll see the remake, for that reason alone.

SummerRayne17 Thu 28-Sep-17 02:05:35

Yeah, Julia Roberts and Keifer Sutherland were in the original film. It was pretty freaky tbh, disturbing. Lol

NikiBabe Fri 29-Sep-17 19:14:29

Just saw it.

Really enjoyed it. Very creepy and liked Kiefer Sutherland having a role in it.

MusicToMyEars800 Sat 30-Sep-17 12:01:10

It does look good and I haven't seen the original so might just have to watch both grin
Thanks for the feedback NikiBabe

VioletCharlotte Sat 30-Sep-17 12:11:10

I saw the original, didn't realise they'd remade it. Now I feel old confused

Scary film, seen it last night.
I never watched the original x

OwlBeBack Sun 01-Oct-17 18:13:29

I hated it!! Not a patch on the original. Some really bad acting and quite boring.

OhYouBadBadKitten Sun 01-Oct-17 18:19:59

I’d definitely like to see this. May need to plan a trip for next weekend.

NikiBabe Sun 01-Oct-17 22:22:33

The original flatliners was quite boring too imo.

This new one was more realistic in that the characters exercised more caution. They only did it once, one didnt do it at all and only one of them went back under.

In flatliners original I remember them turning it into a bit of a competition seeing who stay dead the longest and they did it more than once. In the new flatliners they did it in a proper medical facility whereas in 1990 flatliners they did it in and abandoned building and they had a power cut whilst trying to resuscitate someone. Medical students should have had more sense and in the second one they were not as reckless which was more believable imo.

I love the trailer, I will recommend this to my friends so that we can watch it this weekend.
