The beauty of the Final Destination franchise is that it’s the same plot over and over again. This isn’t something to be ashamed of – Jason and Freddy all operate within the same plot time and time again. In fact, it’s great that the movies wholeheartedly embrace the repetition. Now if they would only embrace some decent acting.
The new teaser for the first installment of Final Destination after we were promised no more installments of Final Destination features some killer eye surgery, a wicked bridge collapse, and the least relaxing acupuncture possible (which still makes it more relaxing than eye surgery).
Check it out for yourself:
The only good that can come of this is Tony Todd being a guide through the fear again and what seems to be a hint that the destined-to-die take matters into their own hands. What if killing someone out of order actually saves you? Wouldn’t that be a cool little cosmic trick? The trailer seems to hint that things head that direction, but it also seems to hint that it goes for some jump scares and shoving a guy off a massage table.
Still, that pin perched on the balance beam is unsettling, eh?
Would you go see it?
