Flatliners – Five ambitious medical students embark on a daring experiment: to push through the confines of life and touch the face of death. These students take turns stopping their hearts until their vital signs indicate nothing but flat lines. Moments later, the other team members step in to revive them. They soon find, however, that they don’t return alone from their peek at the afterlife; they bring back manifestations of their past transgressions, forcing them to deal with their past and learn difficult lessons about life and death.
The Green Hornet – The famous comic book hero The Green Hornet finds his way off the page in this action-packed adaptation. When newspaper owner Britt Reid (Seth Rogen) and his friend Kato (Jay Chou) witness a brutal mob hit, the pair team up to bring justice to the city’s corrupt underworld.
Single White Female – Hedy Carlson (Jennifer Jason Leigh) appears at the apartment of Allie Jones (Bridget Fonda) when Allie is at her neediest-she has thrown out her unfaithful boyfriend (Steven Weber) but she’s still on the verge of calling him back. The surviving half of a set of twins, Hedy perpetually seeks someone to complete her and sees in the chic and articulate Allie everything she would like to be. So Hedy moves not only into the apartment but into the most personal aspects of Allie’s life, including having her hair styled and colored to exactly match her roommate’s. But when Allie reconciles with her boyfriend, their unspoken bargain goes terrifyingly awry, driving both women to their most primal extremes from which only one can emerge.
For those that want a break from movies that scare, LG Channels is also offering limited-time free streaming of other popular films.Additional Limited-Time Free Movie Features
