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,
Paleontologist Kate Lloyd is invited by Dr. Sandor Halvorson to join his team who have found something extraordinary. Deep below the Arctic ice, they have found an alien spacecraft that has been there for perhaps 100,000 years. Not far from where the craft landed, they find the remains of the occupant. It's cut out of the ice and taken back to their camp but as the ice melts, the creature reanimates and not only begins to attack them but manages to infect them, with team members devolving into the alien creature.

Dennis Storhøi was cast as Sander but was fired by van Heijningen after repeatedly showing up on set too drunk to work, according to an interview van Heijningen gave to the fan site "Outpost 31". He was replaced by Ulrich Thomsen. See more »
The dog in the final scene (intercut with closing credits) has inconsistent coloration because two different dogs were cast. The initial escape shots were filmed in 2011 and the subsequent aerial shots were taken from the John Carpenter film The Thing. See more »

This film is awesome...it brings back good old fashioned horror and suspense.John Carpenter should be proud.Director,Henninggen pays homage to Carpenter without replicating the original films essence but bringing something new yet familiar. The performances are strong and Winstead solidifies her legendary status in fan boy and geek worlds by continually picking projects that showcase her talent while not compromising her integrity.Edgerton has been on a streak with another fantastic performance.Beltrami's score is nostalgic while refreshing.This film is a perfect companion piece to Carpenter's film.Solid filmmaking!
