What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Flatliners is a remake of a 1990 thriller about medical students who "flatline" (i.e., die) to try to find out what happens after death. The original movie was smart enough to know how ridiculous it was, but this remake lacks that self-awareness. At least it's a little less intense than the original, though you can still expect to see dying/dead bodies, a brutal car crash, an attempted strangling, ghost/scary stuff, and hospital scenes (including hypodermic needles and drops of blood). Language includes several uses of "s--t," one use of "f--k," and a few other words. Two couples have sex; there's no graphic nudity, but a woman is shown on top of a man, and a different man kisses a different woman, removes her bra, and gets naked with her under the covers. Characters drink in at least one scene, getting happily drunk. Alcohol is shown in other scenes, and drugs are mentioned.
