Atypical TV mystery movie
A Near Death Experience does not come off in the typical vein like a majority of TV movies, which is what makes its viewing somewhat refreshing.
Amy Acker is the top talent in this LMN flick, with Johanna Nutter and James A. Woods (among others) ably embodying the supporting characters. Acker is Ellie, a woman who has the "near death experience" from the get-go. After awakening in the hospital, she soon realizes she brought something back with her from her brush with death...something that frightens her and simultaneously lends her power to get people heard...dead people, that is.
I do not normally give much credence to these type of scenarios, but I must concede the movie got me thinking and wondering what I would do and how I would feel in this situation. A gratifying effort from LMN. 7/10
