Goofs

(at around 15 mins) Alex had a premonition that there was a decompression and part of the plane's fuselage broke off. This is not related to the scavenger fuel pump explosion nor would it cause such an explosion. See more »

Quotes

[Having just been jolted out of his premonition, Alex is wild-eyed and hyperventilating as he verifies that the tray table latch is broken, which means his vision was real]
Flight Attendant: Is there a a problem, sir?
Carter: What's your fuckin' problem?
Mr. Larry Murnau: [Speaking in French] What is it?
Alex Browning: [screaming] This fuckin' plane's gonna explode!

User Reviews

original and scary
14 February 2002 | by Special-K88See all my reviews

Inventive, effectively eerie spine-chiller is a step up in the teen horror genre. High schooler Sawa has a horrific vision of his plane crashing just moments before its departure on a class field trip. He and several others exit the plane only to discover that it does in fact crash, but things take a shocking turn when the remaining survivors begin to die in the most mysterious ways. Story is intriguing, the suspense flows well throughout, and there are enough violent deaths to satisfy the target audience. The ending is a bit of a disappointment and should have been planned out better, but overall this is one of the better films of the genre. ***
