    Better not to bring back the dead

    The movie’s plot is one that originally fascinated me quite a lot. Something about a vulnerable group of medical students that are trying to change the world just seems to draw me in every time. These guys have basically discovered a serum that brings the dead back to life, and when one of their party unsuspectingly dies, they decided to use the serum…….untested on humans till now. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that things are going to go awry, and Of course, they drop out of control rapidly. I’ll let you watch it to find out the intimate details, but I’m sure you have a pretty good idea what happens, and how the movie ends.

    I figure since the cover of the movie is Olivia Wilde with black eyes, people might know she's playing evil...and playing evil is what she does and does quite well!! The movie premise is familiar, if you've seen Flatliners. But this movie goes in different directions that could lead to an interesting franchise, if done correctly. This movie would have got 4 stars, if it wasn't for Olivia Wilde. Those beautiful eyes can be very evil. Enjoy!

    I am a huge horror movie. I had been waiting to buy since it hit the theatres (I don't go to the movies often). While it was a good idea, I think it could have been better. It is not a bad movie, I just think a few changes in plot could have made it better. Over all, it is good compared to the garbage often in the box office.

    My son (22) loves to watch scary movies with me because I get freaked out and scream ... why he loves to torture me will only be discovered with therapy! It was scary and actually believable ... I can see a day in the future that people who are dead can be brought back to life. It was fun.

    This is a different kind of horror movie. It really makes you think. Many of the topics touched in this movie are things that most people today are discussing, and the big question, what if it did happen this way? It made me think for quite some time after watching it.

    To say that this film was based off the Bible, it was NOT that good. It was just average. I have NO idea why horror films cannot be good! What will it take or -who will it take to produce a masterpiece horror film? I had to get that out of my system first!

    In short, disappointed. For those who remember, this is basically Flatliners, which is a better movie. Maybe I was expecting more or a different twist but it was quickly over which in this case, was a good thing.
