The story for Final Destination was first conceived by American screenwriter Jeffrey Reddick as a episode of The X Files (1993-2002), which was inspired by the real-life TWA Flight 800 crash. Reddick's story was made into a screenplay by Reddick, along with American producers Glen Morgan and James Wong (who also directed the movie). The popularity of the movie has led, so far, to four sequels, Final Destination 2 (2003), Final Destination 3 (2006), The Final Destination (2009), and Final Destination 5 (2011), actually a prequel to the events of this movie, plus several novels and a comic book series.
Bludworth (Tony Todd) is the mortician that Clear Rivers (Ali Larter) and Alex Browning (Devon Sawa) meet when investigating Tod Waggner (Chad Donella)'s body at the mortuary. He represents the charismatic figure of Charon from Greek mythology. His job is to welcome and carry the souls of dead people to their final destination. Without his help, the souls are doomed to wander forever. However, the character's role was left ambigous in the film, and his backstory was never touched upon.
