"Final Destination" offers plenty of jumpy moments and sure-bet shocks that every fine teen horror flick should have. You'll be sure to enjoy these highlights courtesy of a superb transfer onto a feature-packed DVD.
There are two things that will always please owners of expensive home cinema systems. They are helicopters and thunderstorms. And while "Final Destination" lacks helicopters, it more than makes up for it in thunder effects.
And should all the noise bring your neighbours to the door then be sure to point out to them the razor sharp picture quality on the DVD too.
Unless you're a fan of a specific movie, most extras on DVDs are a right old bore. Pleasingly, the "Final Destination" DVD offers some rather more edgy and fun treats.
A number of deleted scenes are available on the disc including an alternative ending. Before you wade into them, take a look at the 'Interviews with Executives'. This short but informative feature takes you through the screen testing process of the movie, how it changed the direction of it, and some pertinent comments on your average test screener. This binds together the deleted scenes and demonstrates how different the film could have been.
The director's commentary expands further on the possible direction the movie could have taken and details plenty on how it actually ended up.
Make time too for a 20-minute documentary about Pam Coronado. She is the woman who's 'predicted' the TWA plane crash and has helped solve murder investigations. It's creepy stuff.
But not as spine-tingling as the games on the DVD. While one tests your psychic abilities, the other predicts when you will die. The good news? You've only got 20 more years of reviews to read from this individual.
