[dir: Joel Schumacher | 1990 | 115m]

Five medical students (Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon, William Baldwin and Oliver Platt) intentionally stop and then revive their hearts in a bid to determine ‘what happens after we die?’

Excitement soon turns to dread when childhood nightmares and past tragedies begin to infiltrate their waking lives and the group faces the consequences of the horrors they have unleashed.

This screening will be introduced by Rachel Marchant, Doctoral Researcher in the School of Psychology at University of Birmingham. Rachel studies how our brains produce hallucinations, using electrical brain stimulation and recording methods.

Presented by Shock & Gore Festival in partnership with Arts & Science Festival.
