As well as footage, this movie borrows in other ways from the crash of TWA Flight 800. The July 17th, 1996 flight was carrying a high school French club, it exploded suddenly and was investigated for a possible deliberate act causing the accident - first a bomb, then a surface to air missile. As with the movie, it was ultimately decided that the crash was a result of mechanical failure (explosion in the central fuel tank), although the FBI investigation is still open. See more »
A big deal is made of how the characters die off in the same order they would have died in the airplane explosion. Alex traces the death order by following the path of the leaking fuel toward the source of the explosion. However, the explosion would have gone in the opposite direction, AWAY from the source of the explosion. As such the characters are dying in reverse order. See more »
This is without a doubt the best horror movie I have seen in the 90's so far. It is everything you could ever want. It has great acting. A great story. The atmosphere is creepy and real. Not to mention the death scenes are original and quite gross. They leave many disturbing images in you head. I don't want to give away anything. It's worth every dollar I spent on seeing it. I might just go see it again. Final Destination is movie making at it's finest.
