I remember being TERRIFIED by this movie back when I was a kid. The idea of going into the hospital and being harvested like an animal made me literally jump out of seat when I saw the big reveal! Now I hear that A&E is making a mini-series from Ridley & Tony Scott that will be broadcast Labor Day (September 3rd) so mark your calender/set your DVR!!! You can watch a preview on AETV of the new mini series COMA.
I know this is going to be a great mini series full of twists and turns especially with all the technical and medical advances we’ve made in the last thirty years. I don’t even want to imagine what they’ll be using the bodies for in the new mini-series but am sure it will scare me.
Now I get to experience Coma live at SDCC with an interactive immersion experience so that you experience the horror first hand. You know I’ll be first in line to be scared out of my pants! I’m looking forward to sharing the experience will all of you on cherrylosangeles @youtube & CherryLA @CNN iReport.
THE COMA EXPERIENCE
TO BE HELD IN SAN DIEGO DURING COMIC-CON

Reception – Participants will be greeted by Jefferson Institute nurses who will admit them into The Coma Experience. The nurses will guide the visitors to the security monitors so they can get a glimpse of what theyre about to step into as well as see exclusive, first-look footage from the mini-series.
Surgery – Nurses will then take fans to the experiential surgery room where theyll meet surgeons who will decide if theyre good candidates for the tour. If so, fans will have the option of getting a 3-D surgical scar tattoo.
Area 2 – As part of the experience, visitors will be allowed to access The Jefferson Institutes highly secured Area 2, where they will get a glimpse of the doctors at work. In this room, Jefferson Institute human specimens will be on display designed with the chilling look and feel thats authentic to the mini-series.
Area 8 Green Screen – Finally, visitors will be able to step into Area 8, which will be the end of The Jefferson Institute tour. Area 8 will offer visitors the opportunity to get an up close and personal view of an actual Coma Pod that was used in the Ridley & Tony Scott production. In addition, visitors may participate in a green screen photo opportunity that places them into the iconic Coma Pod as if they themselves are the victims of the Jefferson Institute.
