Jigsaw locks a few unlucky people in a booby trapped shelter and they must find a way out before they inhale too much of a lethal nerve gas and die. But they must watch out, for the traps Jigsaw has set in the shelter lead to death also.

In this third installment of the Final Destination series, a student's premonition of a deadly rollercoaster ride saves her life and a lucky few, but not from death itself which seeks out those who escaped their fate.
Mary Elizabeth Winstead,
It has been two years since the tragic events at Woodsboro. Sidney Prescott and Randy Meeks are trying to get on with their lives, and are currently both students at Windsor College. Cotton Weary is out of prison, and is trying to cash in on his unfortunate incarceration. Gale Weathers has written a bestseller, "The Woodsboro Murders," which has been turned into the film, "Stab," starring Tori Spelling as Sidney. As the film's play date approaches, the cycle of death begins anew. Dewey Riley immediately flies out of Woodsboro to try to protect Sidney, his "surrogate sister." But in this sequel to the 1996 horror film, the number of suspects only goes down as the body count slowly goes up! Written by
We see Maureen Evans being stabbed repeatedly by Ghostface, but when she turns to face the crowd at the theater the amount of blood in no way matches up with her wounds. See more »
Two birds, one stone. Mickey was a good boy, but, MY GOD, that old "Blame The Movies" motive. Did you buy that for one second? Poor boy was completely out of his mind.
And you're not?
No. I'm very sane. My motive isn't as "90s" as Mickey's. Mine is just good old fashioned revenge. You could killed my son! And, now, I kill you and I can't think of anything more rational.

A great sequel even better than the remarkable original
In 1996 the slasher film had been given a shot of life in the arm with Wes Craven's 'Scream.' It was a monster hit at the box office and with critics and moviegoers. Less than a year later the inevitable sequel was released and instead of being just another inferior sequel it too was a big success and got much praise. Some sequels just take what made the first one work and give lesser results, but this one delivers and some people, including me, find it even better than the first one.
Pros: Like the original, this sequel has an exciting and terrifying opening sequence. Good performances from the cast. Writing and dialogue just as sharp as in the first one. The pace is fast as lightening. Lots of brutal kills and bloodshed. Plenty good, wicked humor. Many twists and turns. A good score and soundtrack. More cool references and in-jokes.
Cons: You really have to suspend your disbelief at times.
Final thoughts: It's now become a tradition, so to speak, to sequelize a popular movie. 'Scream,' the 1996 blockbuster hit and re-invention of the slasher genre, is such a film and unlike some other horror films, a sequel was very much a good move. In fact, this sequel is even better than the first; a rarity.
My rating: 5/5
