Minneapolis, MN (August 1, 2017) Mill Creek Entertainment, the leader in value home entertainment, is pleased to announce the upcoming release of the cult-classic 90s film Flatliners as a SteelBook® Blu-ray + DVD combo on September 26, 2017. The star-studded thriller in its all-new collectible packaging will be available for $29.98 SRP.
This star-studded film, directed by Joel Schumacher, features acclaimed performances by Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon, William Baldwin and Oliver Platt as a group of medical students who begin experimenting with near-death experiences. Flashes of thrilling nightmares from childhood memories begin to haunt each of them as reflections of past committed sins and sins others have committed against them. Each experience exponentially intensifies as they delve deeper into the death experience in the hopes to find a cure.
“We are thrilled to partner with SteelBook® to develop a collectible product that’ll appeal to fans of Flatliners and to collector community,” says Barrett Evans, VP of Marketing and Product Development for Mill Creek Entertainment. “We wanted to capture the film’s haunting, neo-Gothic tone and the overriding existential themes with this new artwork. The interior spread illustrates vignettes of each character’s haunted past through an all-new interpretation. We are proud of how this came together and feel it complements the artistic originality of Schumacher’s film.”
Flatliners originally released in theaters August 10, 1990 by Columbia Pictures, and was the top grossing film during its opening week. Produced by Michael Douglas and Rick Bieber, with cinematography by Jan de Bont and an unforgettable score by James Newton Howard, the film was nominated for an Oscar® for Best Sound Effects Editing in 1990. The sequel starring Ellen Page, Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev, James Norton, Kiersey Clemons and featuring Kiefer Sutherland reprising his role of Nelson is slated to hit theaters September 29 nationwide.
