The fans have spoken, and The Final Destination won its opening weekend box office battle with Halloween II. But the real test of its mettle is how Trembles sees it, so of course it’s the topic of this week’s Motion Picture Purgatory.
I suspect we’ll see what he thought of H2 next week, but in the meantime check out his FD4 MPP below, and be sure to read Andrew’s The Final Destination review as well if you haven’t already.
On what should have been a fun-filled day at the races, Nick O’Bannon (Bobby Campo) has a horrific premonition in which a bizarre sequence of events causes multiple race cars to crash, sending flaming debris into the stands, brutally killing his friends and causing the upper deck of the stands to collapse on him. When he comes out of this grisly nightmare, Nick panics, persuading his girlfriend, Lori (Shantel VanSanten), and their friends, Janet (Haley Webb) and Hunt (Nick Zano), to leave…escaping seconds before Nick’s frightening vision becomes a terrible reality. Thinking they’ve cheated death, the group has a new lease on life, but unfortunately for Nick and Lori, it is only the beginning.
