Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Five medical students decide to embark on a dangerous experiment to pierce the veil between life and death in an attempt to learn more about the afterlife. Under their temporary deaths they experience strange visions, and memories long since forgotten. However, what they hadn't bargained for is that when they pierced the veil of life and death, they'd each bring something back with them, something from their past that will not only haunt them, but is also fully capable of hurting them as well.
Some lines shouldn't be crossed.

- Nelson Wright: Hello, I'm nice, he's nice, we're both fucking lunatics. Can I come in, please?
David Labraccio: He said... he said it wasn't such a good day to die. Nelson Wright: Thank you.
Nelson Wright: Today is a good day to die
Nelson Wright: You bring the equipment, I'll bring my balls.
Joe Hurley: I don't know. Not thinking about the past or the future. I don't know it's difficult to explain, maybe impossible. David Labraccio: Yeah, dying is quite that way.
- Hope Davis's film debut.
When David Labraccio (Kevin Bacon) goes to visit Winnie Hicks ('Kimberly Scott') to "atone" for taunting her, he mentions that they both went to "S.B. Butler" school as kids to remind her who he was. Writer Peter Filardi included this as a nod to his hometown in southeastern Connecticut, where there is a real "S.B. Butler" elementary school, near downtown Mystic, CT.
SPOILER: Billy Mahoney's death is an in-joke to filmmakers, where the three acts of a story are frequently described as: 1) You put a character in a tree. 2) You throw rocks at him. 3) He somehow gets down from the tree.
