This film is a remake of Joel Schumacher's "The Forbidden Experience" of 1991. To make the link Kiefer SUTHERLAND who had the main role in this first film, plays a role in this remake.
The film begins with two people in a car, a young girl driving with her sister in the passenger seat, the driver using her mobile phone and all at once her sister shouting, at the entrance of a bridge is a construction machine and it is the inevitable accident. We will be screened 9 years later at Trinity Emmanuel Medical Center, a hospital where medical students are working. In the end is Courtney who wants to make the experience that will make her famous, in the cellars of the? In the hospital there is a facility with high tech equipment with an MRI scanner, used only for emergency cases. She takes two other students, Jamie and Sophia. For the experiment Courtney will have all the necessary sensors and we will be able to take images of the impulses of the brain at each stage of the experiment, it will be necessary to cause the cardiac arrest of the young student after having lowered her body temperature with a refrigerant cover and then after a minute and following a determined protocol to revive, if Sophia does not agree too much, Jamie on the other hand is starting and the experiment begins, except that later Jamie does not arrive not to resuscitate Courtney, two other students Ray and Marlo are called to the rescue and finally the young student regains his heart rate ...
Of course, after reading the diagonally synopsis I thought about Bernard Werber's fascinating novel "Thanatonautes", and if this story of the author of the ants is subtle, searching and taking, the same can not be said of the movie. We will rather classify this story in the horror-fantasy category but we must do justice to this story, it was not classified otherwise and its first objective was to terrify us. Four students will try the experiment and as the first sees her cognitive abilities boosted to the maximum and even if yesterday she played "Au clair de la lune" with a finger on the piano, today she is able to interpret a night of Chopin. The worst part of it is that everyone has a corpse in a drawer, or at least almost. Courtney is actually the girl who had an accident at the beginning of the story and her little sister did not come out unscathed and the latter remembers her memory. The problem in it is that every student who lives his paranormal adventures does not talk to others for lack of scientific rationality, or at least in the beginning. It's a movie made to scare the audience and he succeeds very well using the strings used cinematographically for that. The film is quite captivating and uses a demonic suspense. Go a little adrenaline rush if you go see it, do not come home too late!

Was it necessary to review the first reading of this film, certainly well anchored in its time, but quite effective and especially with a concrete casting. So this remake, has its positives, with the latest technology and good visual effects. The casting is aimed at a new generation of spectators, who know his young actors, and even if they do not fare too badly, we can not help comparing them with the previous generation.
So it's not bad, even if we could have done without it.
