It seems that above all others, horror is the one franchise in which it’s culturally acceptable to release as many sequels as possible. Even superhero films, which are one of the highest grossing movie genres to date, has only gone to 3 or 4 films before ending or rebooting a franchise. Not horror. Films like Saw, Friday the 13th, Toxic Avenger, and countless others keep getting cranked out.
One of those franchises still cranking is New Line’s Final Destination. Starting in 2000, the franchise is now hitting it’s fifth (and probably not final) film in this August. Here’s the breakdown.
In “Final Destination 5,” Death is just as omnipresent as ever, and is unleashed after one man’s premonition saves a group of coworkers from a terrifying suspension bridge collapse. But this group of unsuspecting souls was never supposed to survive, and, in a terrifying race against time, the ill-fated group frantically tries to discover a way to escape Death’s sinister agenda.
Lots more “accidental yet creative” deaths, some more cringe-worthy tension, and the return of Tony Todd! Check it all out in the newest trailer for Final Destination 5 — or as we like to call it FIVEnal Destination.
