This movie is NOT a sequel to the 1990 movie. It is a remake, a re-imagining, or a version of the previous movie and has no other connection to it at all. Although Kiefer Sutherland appears in both versions, he plays two different characters. See more »
In the morgue when Marlo calls Courtney's cellphone, it shouldn't be able to ring because of a dead battery. Later in the movie, in the cafe we see that Courtney never stopped, and dropped her phone when she was haunted by her dead sister in her own house. So the phone never stopped filming until the battery died.
Courtney's phone shouldn't necessarily have been running out of battery power if she didn't stop filming. Many phones will run out of internal memory way before they run out of power when filming in full resolution, especially when the limited internal memory hasn't been expanded with an extra SD memory card. Furthermore, most phones still use the FAT32 file system, which limits the size of a single file to 4GB max. These and many other scenarios could have caused the phone to stop filming after 5 to 15 minutes and after that switch to the default inactive state that could keep the phone running for a few days when not used.

It's just depressing for a movie lover like me to see a film like Joel Schumacher's 1990 Flatliners remade. Why? Can anyone come out with something we haven't seen before or at least from a fresh new POV. Somebody told me that my reaction is "generational" - I fear that's true. It makes me feel really old. I almost walked out of Mother!, the other day - something I've never done - because I felt treated like a moron. To steal from Robert Polanski to do what, what? Here is even worse. They're stealing from Joel Schumacher without having any of the...what was it that the 1990 had that this one hasn't? Well let's say that the first one wasn't a remake. Where are the mavericks? The new ones. The ones I love are in their 70's or gone. I do apologize I'm just venting my frustration. Thank you for indulging me.
