Set one year after the fateful plane explosion of the first movie, Final Destination 2 sees a new crop of young friends escaping death thanks to a premonition, this time in the form of a horrible highway pile up, only to find each survivor meeting their end in other gruesome ways.
The first sequel in what is arguably the most reliably entertaining horror franchise of the 2000s, Final Destination 2 reaches new levels of misanthropy, reveling in offing its charmless characters, toying with the viewers expectations of how each death will go down. Written by J. Mackye Gruber and Eric Bress, creators of one of the most confounding studio films ever made (The Butterfly Effect), this is a demented ride that will effectively have you calculating every step you take to get home safely.
