When it was announced that 1990’s Flatliners would be getting a 2017 remake, it seemed unnecessary to say the least. Reviews suggest that our initial speculations were indeed correct.

While only a handful of critics have reviewed it so far, the film currently has 0% positive on Rotten Tomatoes. Here are just some of the less than flattering reviews:


“The original Flatliners should have had a ‘Do Not Resuscitate’ order attached to it.”

AV Club:

Flatliners 2017 is the same dumb movie as Flatliners 1990, minus most of the surface charisma.”


“Though competently directed and well-acted, Flatliners does little to set itself apart from a run-of-the-mill thriller. True to the material, it simply lacks a pulse.”

Although this film is apparently dead on arrival, at least we can take comfort in the fact that Blade Runner 2049 has gotten almost universally positive reviews.
