Trivia

As the opening credits conclude, the words "This is the end" appear on screen. They are shown spray painted on the concrete bust of Jim Morrison, lead singer of The Doors, as a reference to their opus "The End". Morrison's bust is located in Pere Lachaise cemetary in France, the original destination of the main characters' field trip. See more »

Fasten your seat belts!
22 March 2000 | by sethfanSee all my reviews

I can't remember the last time I saw a movie that genuinely kept me on the edge of my seat. Final Destination is a true roller coaster ride. It is not your "typical teen-age horror flick." This one is original with cleverly crafted and blocked death sequences. I promise you...you _will_ jump! And of course it has Devon Sawa who is a charming and talented actor (check him out in Idle Hands for a great performance). Don't read too many reviews that might accidentally give something away! In fact stop reading this now and just go see this great movie...and be ready for the ride of your life!
