Someone tell them what “Final” means…
There is to be a 4th instalment in the Final Destination series. Director David R Ellis, who directed Final Destination 2, has been signed up to direct the 4th movie; which they plan to film in 3D. The popular horror series works on the premise that even if you cheat death once, the force that is death itself will stalk you until it has finished what it has started, usually as gruesome and gory as possible.
Apparently this isn’t true for sequels. You can kill a good idea. I think that the movie bosses made so much money (double their budget) on the 1st, 2nd, and even 3rd instalment they are willing to push their luck.
Do you ever get the feeling of de ja vu? There are only so many new ways you can kill a bunch of teenagers off before it gets yawnsome. However I could be totally wrong and we could have another hit movie on our hands. But ask yourself…who actually watched all of the Scream movies and can you remember what the last one was about?
