The original film, directed by Joel Schumacher, follows a group of med students who purposefully stop their hearts in order to see the afterlife. The problems start when they realize that every time they come back from the dead, something comes back with them. While the film received mixed critical reviews, it was perhaps most noted as yet another stepping stone for rising young actress Julia Roberts.
Page, who would be reprising Roberts’ role in the Flatliners remake, is currently promoting her latest film from TIFF, Freeheld, which focuses on a lesbian couple who fight for equal treatment under the law.
