6 Hollywood Ways to Cheat Death

We love to diss Indian films that talk about ghosts, the afterlife and reincarnation. Even Aamir Khan, the most admired actor in Bollywood, got a earful for the supernatural resolution in his film Talaash. But we Indians are not the only ones around trying to cheat death. In fact, the only problem with our methods is that they are positively old-fashioned. 

Good ol’ Hollywood has been pushing the envelope in this matter with more and more creative paths to immortality. You can take your pick from these six. Just remember to read the Terms & Conditions before making your move!
 
1. Transfer your consciousness to another person’s body. Preferably someone with no family and friends, because if they do, you might find yourself stalked by desperate relatives, as Ryan Reynolds did in Self/Less.
 
2. Transfer your consciousness to a robot. As Dev Patel does at the end of Chappie in a last-ditch attempt to hang on to life. Warning: May leave a metallic taste in your mouth.
 
3. Cryogenic preservation. It’s a tried and tested method in Hollywood of surviving disasters and bad times. One of its most recent proponents is Benedict Cumberbatch who was frozen and revived in Star Trek 2.
 
4. Find your local Gothic spa and get the magical potion to go. Goldie Hawn and Meryl Streep fell for this (quite literally) in Death Becomes Her, with disastrous consequences.
 
5. Get trapped in a time warp. Bill Murray finds himself in one of these in Groundhog Day. Sure, the days are repetitive but you’re guaranteed a second chance at the day. And a third. And a fourth…
 
6. If death still manages to catch you, inject yourself with untested serums that you’ve made in an underground research facility. Some evil from The Other Side may come back with you but who’s afraid of a little evil? Mark Duplass certainly wasn’t, in The Lazarus Effect.
