Did You Know?


Many of the props contain references to assassinated presidents or almost-presidents: Ms. Lewton's leaking coffee cup had an inscription for Mt. Abraham High, and Carter Horton's car had a license plate beginning with the letters "RFK". The plane takes off from "JFK"-Airport. JFK (John F. Kennedy) also was assassinated. See more »


Carter's car, when first we see it, is a Chevy Nova SS. You can recognize that model by the letters "SS" on the front grille. In the night shot later when Clear and Billy and Carter meet at the memorial, the "SS" is missing. Subsequent shots are of a car that matches the first car. See more »


Carter: [mocking Alex] The plane, it's gonna blow up. It's gonna blow up!
Tod Waggner: Hey, fuck you, Horton, okay? Fuck you!
Val Lewton: Tod!
Alex Browning: The only trip you're taking is to the fucking *hospital*!
[He attacks Carter and they start to fight]

No one can escape from death.
10 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Aren't we all afraid to die? In this film, teens get on a plane for a high school trip to Paris.

While on the plane, one teen had a premonition of something bad happening to the plane and everyone on the plane would die.

He prevented it by getting off the plane with five of his classmates.

It didn't stop the plane from taking off with the rest of his classmates and they ended up dying on the plane.

The truth is you can't cheat death.

Now death is going to hunt them down one by one.

The death scenes in this movie are unique, intriguing and frightening.

Through out the whole film, the movie is suspenseful and unpredictable. I'd highly recommend this movie to anyone.

This is a chilling first class edge of your seat thriller.
