    Unlike Flatliners, the original Jacob's Ladder is an excellent film that really has no business being re-made. I can only imagine how terrible this is going to be but on the bright side, I won't be watching.

    Hard nope. I like Ealy and Jesse Williams but that's nowhere enough to think this won't stink. I checked up on the director and he doesn't provide me any hope. Not a movie that needs to be redone and is unlikely to recapture the vibe that the first one had.

    Both are amazing movies. 80s and early 90s ruled for movies.
