"Today Is a Good Day to Die"

25 years ago today, medical student Nelson developed the idea of decoding death and took himself and four classmates on a thrilling journey below the flatline...

Aiming to steal the secrets of death, Flatliners, is the 1990 American sci-fi, horror thriller starring Keifer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon, William Baldwin and Oliver Platt as they conduct their own near-death experiences. Each heart was stopped and then revived, resulting in repressed childhood memories haunting their reality. The nightmarish flashes reflected sins each member had either committed or had been committed against them, and, as the experiences intensified and became increasingly physical, they had to go deeper into the afterlife to find a cure for the present.

On Flatliners' 25th birthday, we take a look at what the cast looks like now:
