The 1990 film flatliners is about a group of medical students who experiment with near-death experiences. The movie revolves around medical students who are experimenting with death by stopping their hearts for short periods of time.
The idea for the movie was based on an article published in the Journal of Near Death Studies by Dr. Michael Sabom about his work with patients who had survived cardiac arrest. The film was shot in a number of locations in and around Chicago, Illinois.
