In Joel Schumacher’s Flatliners, medical students begin to explore the realm of near death experiences, hoping for insights into what lies beyond our world. Each has their heart stopped and is revived. They begin experiencing waking nightmares from their childhood, reflecting their own personal sins. These experiences continue to intensify, and they begin to be physically abused by their visions as they head deeper into the death experience to find a cure.
To bring this concept into the modern age, what changes would you make? If you could plot out a film on how to cheat death, how would you do it? We each take very different roads on this journey, so strap yourself to the gurney, as we’re about to Remake Flatliners RIGHT!
Clips selected from 1990’s Flatliners.

What IS Remake This Movie RIGHT?
Remake This Movie RIGHT! is a podcast where we take a classic film that is actively being remade by Hollywood studio execs, and craft our own version for a modern retelling. Does the story need updating? Should characters or motives be tweaked? Do we need more muppets? We take all factors into account, concoct our singular film, and then offer a Final Pitch to you in movie trailer form. By the end of each episode, we will Remake This Movie RIGHT!
Our show is broken down into three distinct parts:
The Original: We discuss the original film’s impact on us and history, some quick trivia bits, what worked the best from the film and therefore must remain in our upcoming remake, as well as what didn’t work or what needs to be changed for today’s audiences. Most importantly, should this film even be remade?
The Remake: We put together our movie! What story do we want to tell, how close to the original will it be, who will star, and ultimately who should direct our eventual cinematic masterpiece? Our hosts work together to put together one cohesive movie, but there is one caveat – Each host has one ‘CUT!’ throughout the episode to employ, which could completely derail the entire film.
The Final Pitch: This is where we summarize our remake by utilizing the voice talents of voiceover artist Wayne Henderson and present our finished remake to you in movie trailer parody form!
