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

One of a handful of films in a mini-cycle of Hollywood pictures all released around 1990 that dealt with the theme of after-life and near-death experiences which all got first released about seven years after Brainstorm (1983). The films include Ghost (1990), Flatliners (1990), and Jacob's Ladder (1990). See more »
During the Gross Anatomy dissection, the medical students are told to remove the ascending colon to the transverse colon, then to continue to the sigmoid colon until reaching the appendix. The appendix is located on the right side of the colon, at the beginning of the ascending colon. The above description would put it on the left side, near the end of the sigmoid (the last part of the colon before the rectum). See more »
"Hello, I'm nice, he's nice, we're both f**king lunatics. Can I come in, please?"
Im usually wary of movies hovering around the 6/10 mark on IMDb. Id like to think people know what they are talking about and know what they like. I guess the trick with reviewing is to take an approach of "Hey, if i liked types of movies like these- would i give it a higher score than i am about to give it now since I don't like these types of movies" Then again people judge differently , basing more value on acting, or perhaps story or directing. Anyway, landing the plane here- i had rented this movie out before and hadn't had time to watch it, this morning i did.
Wow! See this movie. I am personally interested in the paranormal/have read a bit about near death experiences, so automatically i was hooked. I am unsure about some of the comments here saying that a quality cast here was wasted - i disagree- the acting here was superb from all- i think this is the only time i didn't mind Julia Roberts, it was good to see 24's Kiefer Sutherland (Currently at the time of this review, serving a jail sentence for DUI), and Kevin Bacon sporting an interesting hair style.
Overall- i liked the direction, the atmosphere, the acting, and the story line most of all- particularly the idea of karma, and , to quote Nelson Wright "Everything we does matters" So true.
