The first of FIVE films in the franchise, Final Destination ushered contemporary slasher films into the aughts. Continuing the tradition of featuring young stars like Devon Sawa, Ali Larter, Kerr Smith, and Seann William Scott, Final Destination is basically a film about escaping or not escaping death. Death gets pissed when a few high school students avoid their fate after one has a premonition that gets them off a plane that’s bound to crash. But when these “survivors” start dying in bizarre accidents, the rest band together to stay alive. But Death always gets her man.
