Kim I think the Buddhist parallel to 'Heaven' is 'Nirvana' (not to be confused with Kurt Cobain!). Rather than a place, it is concieved as a state of ultimate conciousness or awareness achieved through walking the righteous 'Eight-fold Path' and lifetimes of meditation.
For an interesting and colorful conception of "Hell" and the afterlife, try the Robin Williams film "What Dreams May Come". Very different indeed!
