The Final Destination


In a car race in McKinley Speedway, twenty-something Nick has a premonition of a deadly car crash with many casualties in the audience and convinces his girlfriend Lori and his friends Hunt and Janet to leave the place. They are followed by the security guard; a racist guy; a mother with her children and a mechanic, that are saved from death. (Source: IMDB)

And it continues.. The franchise formula repeats yet again. A premonition warns someone about a disaster, he freaks out and causes others to be saved, only to fall into death’s plan, one by one.. once again.

Though not directly.. the racing accident could have been inspired by the Pierre Levegh incident at 1955 Le Mans, where 82 people where killed when Pierre’s car hit a retaining wall, launching the engine into the crowd.

This movie proves my theory that people who make horror movies do NOT believe in bones. When Andy (Mechanic) is struck by a runaway truck and pushed into a metal fence, it dices him, and we see the flesh fall away. There is a distinct lack of bones.. only flesh. This in itself is proof, but then you have to take into account, that although it could have killed him aways.. his ribs and spine would have prevented the dicing through the fence. He would have been crushed. But, that’s not shocking enough for this film.

One of the really annoying aspects of this movie is that it was made in the early stages of the rise of digital 3d.. every single 3d gag you can think of is in here.. it’s painful to watch

Trigger Song: There is no official trigger song in this movie.
