Final Destination 5 movie clips Final Destination 5 Clips Tease a Predictable Horror Romp

We are now up to Final Destination 5, the fifth installment in the Death-as-a-muderous-stalker series that (ironically) just won’t die. While the last installment, The Final Destination, may have failed to leave even most die-hard fans of the series satisfied, it was also the highest-grossing entry yet. Hence why we’re getting a fourth sequel.

Five clips from… Final Destination 5 are now online for your viewing pleasure. Do they suggest that this film will appeal to anyone but the same crowd who flocked to the previous Final Destination pics?

Not so shockingly, the answer is no. The fifth Final Destination does feature the return of Mr. Bludworth (Tony Todd), who was last seen in the second film – and seems to be most fans’ favorite character in the series, either formerly or still living.

Other than that, though, it’s just the same predictable routine: a group of people (played by largely unknown actors and actresses) “cheat” death and are killed off in apparent “accidents”, one by one.

For a preview of that, check out the Final Destination 5 clips below:






Obviously, we could complain about the hokey acting in this Final Destination 5 footage or how the characters continue to behave in the stupid, stereotypical of the horror genre, fashion but there’s little point to it. The Final Destination movies aren’t about creative storylines or memorable characters – heck, most of the people in any one of the films end-up dead before the end credits roll, so there’s little point in giving them much personality anyway.

Final Destination 5 director Steven Quale and screenwriter Eric Heisserer know exactly what fans of this series are looking for: an impressive central set piece where the main characters narrowly avoid being killed, followed by ingeniously-designed sequences where people get ‘offed in creepy and unnerving ways (see: the laser surgery scene above).

Add a plot twist where Bludworth reveals there’s a way of cheating Death a second time, and Final Destination 5 looks to deliver everything its loyal fans could want. Everyone else can (and surely will) just pass on checking it out – or get their fill by watching the official “True Romance” video from Final Destination 5 actor Miles Fisher (with cameos from the rest of the cast).


Final Destination 5 arrives in theaters this Friday on August 12th, 2011.

  1. I find these movies to be very stupid and ridiculous……. but I have not missed one yet and I wont miss this one. Even though they are very cheesy I cant quit watching them I actually find it kind of interesting the makers keep being able to think of new way to kill the people. It not like other horror movies where some guy kills everyone with a weapon. In this movie the creators actually have to be creative

  2. i like the final destination film series and like the 3d element it adds to the shock of how they die.
    i cant wait to watch this installment as i think its gonna be another favourite installment

  3. Your criticism of the Final Destination films could be lobbied at ANY horror movie franchise. Halloween? Friday the 13th? Nightmare on Elm Street?

    All horror movie franchises (come to think of it, all franchises, with few exceptions, not only horror) fit into the “more of the same” category.

    If you’re a fan of any of these styles of film, then you will take a certain pleasure from the Nth romp through whatever world the film makers have created for you.

    This is no different than Fastestestest and Mostestest Furioser, or Die Even More Harder This Time Around, or even Alien. In the end, any “redux” of the events of any film series reveals a “more of the same” element.

  4. As like as it dose not turn it’s self into a comedy like the last one.

  5. Lmfao love that last video…only main reason id see this film is cause of the bridge collapse and David Koesher (However you spell it)

  6. Final Destination 1: AMAZING!
    Final Destination 2: GREAT!
    Final Destination 3: GOOD.
    Final destination 4: BAD. A great big joke actually…

    I hope this one is atleast GOOD.

  7. I saw the 4th one first… because I thought it was the first… being titled “The Final Destination”… I actually like it. The horror was such a joke and felt more like a horror comedy. Though if I paid for it, I’d be a little pissed.

    “(played by largely unknown actors and actresses)”
    I’m sorry… and this matters because…?
    As an audience, are we supposed to see the same actors and actresses in every damn movie? Seriously, if I see one more Jim Carrey movie where he doesn’t play Ace Ventura…

  8. Personally, I always thought the “largely unknown actors and actresses” aspect was a positive.

    For example, I am not particularly impressed by the veritable pantheon of “who’s who” in Contagion. For me, that is a warning sign for lots of over-acting and “LOOK AT ME!!!!” scenes.

  9. Final Destination: Great
    Final Destination 2: Amazing
    Final Destination 3: Good
    Final Destination 4: OK
    Final Destination 5: Hoping to be better than the previous film.

    I always thought they could pick out good deaths from the tv show 1,000 ways To Die which one death happend in the 2nd film in a different way. And i wonder how people would react if Tony Todd’s character got killed in the film?

  10. I enjoyed the Rube Goldberg approach to the various deaths. The films all sort of blur together, but I remember this concept being present in all the films. That certainly sets the FD films apart from other “horror” type films.

  11. I hope 30 minute or less crushes it at the box office. That movie is gonna be awesome while this will be a uneeded sequel. They should have stopped after they made the third one but no they had to make more.

  12. i like the final destination film series and like the 3d element it adds to the shock of how they die.

  14. Was watching the first film on tv yesterday since it was on and i wondered why Carter, Tod’s father, & that school teacher seemed to personally blame Devon Sawa’s character for what happend to Flight 180. I can see why the two fbi agents might suspect him, especially for murders happening afterwards. It was just on my mind.
