Trivia

The home improvement store scene was mostly shot in an actual store. They were only allowed to film after the store was closed and had to leave the store the exact way they found it. While different parts of the scene were being filmed, other crew members were often putting objects back on the shelves. In addition, they had to turn objects around to hide brand names, bring in other brand names, and put things in the way to block names from appearing due to the store not wanting their name or products being associated with a "teen death movie".

Goofs

In the tanning bed room, when the temperature controller's display changes from 77 to 78¡F, it can be seen that the fan control switch on the lower left side is set to "On". This should normally have the fan (the one built into the wall, not in the tanning beds) running all the time. However, it is then shown how it turns on due to increased temperature in the room and makes the coat hanger wobble. The switch should be set to "Auto" if this were to happen. See more »

Surprisingly good
2 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just got back from the world premiere of Final Destination 3 at the Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood and I must say that this film was surprisingly good. Definitely one of the gorier films that I have seen in quite some time, but very well put together and quite suspenseful. In fact, about half way through the film (during one particularly gory scene) about five audience members had to excuse themselves from the theatre. I have not seen either of the first two movies but was still able to enjoy this film so I'm sure I missed out on soem references that would have likely enhanced the experience. Still, I was quite pleased (especially because I expected the movie to be stupid) that Final Destination 3 was enjoyable for those who were not familiar with the original story. I also had the opportunity to speak with director James Wong to congratulate him a job well-done. He seems like a very nice guy.
