    Todd wasn't looking up at a camera when he died in that bathtub. It seems like something took his photo prior to the emergency team and detectives arrival. If you try to commit suicide, it goes against Death's plan like Kimberly, George, and Eugene.

    This movie made me paranoid about... pretty much everything, as a kid. I still refuse to do artificial tanning specifically because of this saga. Damn.

    I really enjoyed first two movies. And that truck/ logs scene in the second one is one of the most iconic scenes I know. Even years after seeing this movie, I feel really uncomfortable driving behind one of those fvckers.

    We can all agree that scream was amazing, the same way final destination was, I want to see a film about the mortician, Like if he was the solo survivor of sourcing death or something similar

    I would say, watch 1 and 2, skip 3 and 4 and then watch 5 for a more "serious" experience.
    If you want the full ridiculous effect, watch all of them.
    Some of my favorite deaths are on the second movie: the glass sheet squishing the kid to death, the hook on the mother's braid, the pvc pipe through the snob girl, the barbed wire cutting the stoner in 3... But in the end, my favorite is the Teacher on the first, mainly because she tried so hard to resist, but stuff kept going more and more wrong, like the escalation is quite fast and severe.
    The "suicide" is heartbreaking thou.

    We just watched all the FD movies back to back. It was great. I loved the ending. Pure genious. I remember telling my husband.."Whats up with all the kids going to Paris again" BOOM..The film circled it self around to the first flight where the plane crashed. Can't wait for FD6.

    Great video. I've always found these films to be inherently nihilistic in some way and have argued that point, as the underlining theme is that the characters cant escape death and that you cannot cheat it and despite a few minor characters surviving esepcially in part 2, death eventually wins at the end of the day. Impressive for a film that broke through on its first outing and became a big box office draw.

    It would be super cool if Bloodworth was the only person to actually survive the whole thing. Possibly something with becoming a servant of death’s design, as he deals with the dead once they’ve followed through on the design.

    The Final Destination series has always been the scariest film franchise I've ever seen, and that still stands to this day. Films like Scream, Halloween, and even the most masterful psychological thrillers have never made me sick to my stomach in the way that Final Destination has. You can run away from a psychopathic killer and even fight back. However, our fate is inevitable and absolute. There's no escaping the random chaotic deaths such as the ones that are depicted in the movies because you don't see it coming. That's what's so terrifying. It legitimately scarred me as a child when I watched the first one, so much so, that I can't watch any of the others.

    The thing is, if you have a monster chasing you, its real and can be stopped or atleast slowerd. Something non physical is spooky cos you cant kick it in the nuts

  • The Lucky Packet
    The Lucky Packet 7 days ago

    This and It Follows make us realise how vulnerable we are and how much we try, entropy is inevitable. Many people think the latter film is about as STD, but it is actually death. The director said so himself. And both films are equally unsettling and terrifying.

  • Grecia Medero

    Ok get this, the girl from the second one and the cop have a grownup daughter or son of about 18 years old since it was in 2001. They’re all in a family cruise maybe with more family members or friends) then their kid has a premonition but the parents are not close by. For some reason( I’m still theorizing) their child and some friends and family get off.Some accidental happen in the boat and they survive it. Now the child finds journals of Kimberly talking about her traumatic experience with “Death” and it’s design. And also talking about how they “beat it” for 18 years. And then the new adventure starts. Now how cool would that be?! 😄

    My favourite movie has to be the second one(?), with the rollercoaster. I live a few hours away from the theme park where it was filmed (they were mostly filmed in and around Vancouver BC,) and a few years ago someone convinced me to go on the Corkscrew, which is the rollercoaster they used for the film. The fear I felt going on that ride was as much because of the movie as the ride itself.
    Also, since Frankie got off that coaster and took his camera with him, the accident never would have happened.

  • Weapon

    I think the creepiest thing about this series was that, despite how over-the-top some of the deaths were, they were all caused by a series of seemingly random events that could--potentially--happen in real life. Not that it's very likely at all, but the tanning death and a few others stuck out in that regard. As another comment mentioned, it's kinda like 1000 Ways to Die except without the premonitions

    So um in Final Destination 5 Molly, the main protagonists girlfriend, does not die at the end of the premonition. She lives and is stuck waiting there while the main guy dies. So im kind of sad that she got like sucked out of the plane and sliced in half, but maybe there intent was that she believed the main guy and they went to Paris together and so he brought her to her death. Or in the beginning she was suppose to die on that plane anyway and so the main guy throughout the film was suppose to be surviving with her so that in the end he can lead her to her true death of dying on that plane.

    final destination though not even a mile near the level of Asian horror (japan,korean, and Thailand the king!) is one of the closest and is one that actually scares you or rather gives you a scare feeling or "fucked up" mood unlike all m night mamamalan or insidious or god forbid scream or practically 90% of so called Horror from hollywood.

    the pileup in the beginning of 2 is my fave disaster, it seems the most realistic. but overall i think 3 is my favorite. partly because it works as a standalone and doesnt force connections to the previous 2

    FD5 has to be the best ending to a horror franchise. Most horror franchises that have over three or four movies rarely end with a strong movie.

  • Herm Ask
    Herm Ask 11 days ago

    What I like is
    * that some single events are believable -oil canister leaks- but the combination - electric spark just seconds later- is highly improbable. This turns the whole thing into a Rube Goldberg machine of death - which is very entertaining.
    * You are seeing fresh faces every installment- the old ones are already killed of- that's a nice employment program for upcoming actors.
    * Tony Todd
    Favorite scene? Where the sheer multiplication of improbabilities wouldn't make it happen in a timespan since the Big Bang, yet I see it on the screen. The aforementioned Rube Goldberg machine of. Death. Just being killled by a bus isn't enough.

    These movies gave me life-long anxiety. When I was 9 I used to be obssessed with them, and I started checking on everything because I thought any little thing could hurt my parents. Still afraid of log trucks and nail guns.

    My favorite film is Final Destination 2 as it feels like a great and natural progression of the first film. I just wish it developed that whole "not being able to die before you time" aspect it brought up more. THAT has some amazing implications. As for my favorite death, Todd strangling, and the kid smashed by the glass.

    As hilarious as these movies tended to get as they went farther into the serious, I have to admit that years later I still have a spark of paranoia that I can't get rid of. I don't like elevators, planes are sketchy, and to this day I don't like driving behind trucks carrying anything like rocks or logs in heavy traffic.

    These movies were big for us schoolkids when I was a young teen. We didn't read anything into them, they were just fun because you could watch people die in really silly and gory ways. This was early days of the Internet too, so modern youth probably won't appreciate how difficult it was to find stuff like what Final Destination gave to us bored teens. About all we had at that point was MySpace. That sunbed death scene was hot shit at my school for weeks.
    Similar to things like Bumfights and Jackass, we never thought much about them other than them being mindless fun. But, looking back, they're a real sign of the times and meant a lot more than we realised (for good or bad).
