It might be just a Canadian release on VHS as I do not recall it ever being in theatres but I was rather impressed with this movie except for a few weak points. If you remember final destination(crappy), convergence has a similar theme but was made earlier and with more style. The filming is decidedly creepy if one word could describe the entire film. The premise is simple, I copied this off of IMDB for convenience's sake:

A young journalist (Ally Preston) is assigned to work with a more experienced writer (Christopher Llloyd) on a scandal paper. On an assignment to write about a mental-hospital patient who supposedly can predict people's deaths, the younger reporter suddenly experiences a recurrence of lost feelings she had from a near-death experience years previous in an air crash.

It sounds unoriginal and I viewed it in a skeptical manner when I rented it but I was desperate and had nothing else to watch so I gave it a chance. It's obviously pretty low budget but is one of the most depressing films I have seen in recent memory. It's rather difficult to describe and you'll have to see it to understand what I mean. Other films I enjoyed along the same lines were In the Mouth of Madness and Altered States....both brought up the question of reality and consciousness in a refreshing manner.
