Final Destination [PORTABLE]
In the original Final Destination, high school student Alex Browning (Devon Sawa) boards Volée Airlines Flight 180 with his classmates for a field trip to Paris. Before take-off, Alex has a premonition that the plane will explode in mid-air, killing everyone on board. When the events from his vision begin to repeat themselves in reality, he panics, and a fight breaks out, which leads to several passengers being left behind, including Clear Rivers (Ali Larter), Carter Horton (Kerr Smith), Billy Hitchcock (Seann William Scott), Valerie Lewton (Kristen Cloke), Terry Chaney (Amanda Detmer), and Tod Waggner (Chad Donella), who witness the plane explode moments later. Afterwards, the survivors begin to die one by one through a series of bizarre accidents, and Alex attempts to find a way to "cheat" Death's plan before it is too late. Six months later, Alex, Clear, and Carter travel to Paris to celebrate their survival, believing they have finally cheated Death; however, after Carter is crushed by a giant neon sign that falls from a building above, they realize that Death's plan is still in action.
Final Destination is a horror film franchise created by Jeffrey Reddick. The series focuses on groups of people trying to avoid Death after one of them has a premonition where they are all supposed to die and saves them, causing a rift in Death's design. Death itself tries to set things right by killing all of those who have disturbed the balance of life and death. The series plays on themes of fatalism, predestination, precognition, fate vs. free will, luck, etc.
The next day, after a memorial service at McKinley Speedway for the casualties, one of the survivors, Carter Daniels, blames another survivor, George Lanter, for the death of his wife, Cynthia Daniels. For revenge, he attempts to burn a cross on Geroge's front lawn. But his plan backfires as he ends up being dragged down the street and set on fire before the truck finally explodes. The next day, another survivor, Samantha Lane, has a rock launched through her eye and out of her head. Nick, after hearing about her death the next day, returns to the racetrack to try to remember who was next to die in his premonition. To help him refresh his memory, George shows him the security tapes at the time of the disaster. From that, he deduces that Andy Kewzer will be next.
In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the stage is available from the start. Like in the past titles, it is a simple platform. In The Subspace Emissary, a Final Destination-like stage is the location of the final battle with Tabuu.
There are five Final Destination films, the first from 2000, and the final released in 2011. They each have a similar storyline, but with new characters and situations. The franchise was one of the first horror franchises that I ever got into, and, as someone who is not big on the genre in general, it is the only one that I am still attached to. Despite its comedy/horror genre, I would go so far as to call the franchise somewhat comfort films for me.
Cleverly, the events of the final film actually take place first in the franchise, chronologically. There are two ways in which this really works. Firstly, it means that the characters in the film have to work out what is happening to them without the knowledge of those who have survived the phenomenon before. And secondly, it means that at the end, we watch them board flight 180 (the plane that explodes in the very first film), and the events link right back to the beginning of the franchise. This cyclical, linked-up, neat plot appeals to my soul. 041b061a72
