  1. How ironic, I'm actually in the middle of reading a rather cheesy book that is definitely a product of the 'Satanic Panic' era. It's called Demon Deaths and it's all about alleged Satanic ritual murders. It's loaded with misrepresentations, sensationalism, and flat-out mistakes.

    I haven't seen this movie yet, but I certainly will seek it out now. And, Flatliners is probably my favorite Joel Schumacher film period...

  2. Here's a link to the movie on YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-jDVWIksTc - not the best quality but it gives you an idea.

    William, I sure hope that your favorite Schumacher film is Car Wash...

    1. I was thinking as director, not writer. The visual style of Flatliners was brilliant, obviously it had that whole rock video look that Schumacher was known for at the time which made the Lost Boys look good, but ultimately narratively hollow in my opinion. Flatliners had a decent performance from Kevin Bacon and an appropriately creepy performance from Sutherland (nowhere near as memorable as he was in Dark City, but good nonetheless). The script was imaginative too.

      I will check the link out tonight and let you know what I think.
