August 18 sees release of the FINAL DESTINATION COLLECTION but is it really anything new? In one word, no. In fact, it’s perhaps even less than the last boxset, FINAL DESTINATION THRILLOGY, which was released 3 years ago – because that was 4 discs and this is only 2. Just 2 discs? They must be double-sided, which would allow them to retain the content of the previous 4 discs. You just know another set will eventuate once the 4th film hits DVD. In the meantime this is just a sort of mass-market release to make the films available when the new film hits theatres.
Final Destination (2000)
His entire high-school class is going to Paris, but Alex Browning (Devon Sawa, Idle Hands) can’t seem to shake his fear of flying. Once aboard the plane, he has a violently disruptive premonition which gets him and five of his classmates including Clear Rivers (Ali Larter, Varsity Blues, House On Haunted Hill) and Carter Horton (Kerr Smith, TV’s “Dawson’s Creek”) kicked off the plane. As the students watch the plane depart, they witness the horrifying disaster that proves the deadly premonition true. Now having dodged death once, the terror begins in full as fate hunts them down one-by-one. Soon the five survivors will discover you can’t cheat death in this bone-chillingly-suspenseful film that critics call “A first class edge of your seat thriller!” -Paul Wunder, WBAI.
