What do you think about the afterlife? Being born again is a common belief in many religions, and many people believe that if someone dies with unmet wishes, they have another chance. When a 10-year-old suddenly starts acting like an old man or having nightmares about his prior life, science doesn’t have an answer. The intelligentsia is baffled by the miraculous scar mark known as stigmata. It doesn’t matter what the cause may be, but the topic of reincarnation and rebirth has been one of the most hotly debated.
Here are ten examples of films in which the dead return to life, either for unrequited love or for vengeance, and we hope you enjoy them. Listed here are the best rebirth films ever filmed. Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime all have some of the best reincarnation movies.
