View Full Version : Anyone Find Final Destination Films Hard to Watch?

Ahhh, another Final Destination film is upon us. Looks to provide a fresh batch of gruesome deaths.

Personally, I have a hard time enjoying these films. Not so much for the gruesome death scenes, but it just keeps reminding me about the fragility of life and just how freaking easy it is to get killed. It is a thought that most of us just cast out to maintain our sanity. One day, we will all have our final destination, and it may be a gruesome end. No matter how good your life is, you are guaranteed the tragedy of death.

After watching the first film, I remember slipping on the ice and catching myself. Whoa, I could have fell and cracked my skull. I try not to slip in the shower either lol

The only death in any of the movies that "bugged" me was when the airbag deploys and the pipe goes through the woman's head. Not sure why exactly, but that one got to me.

Otherwise, no, I find these movies quite enjoyable as they're cheesy, silly, self-aware fun (the only one I'd consider an actual decent movie is the first.)

the death that I thought was the nastiest and really weired me out, was the nail gun to the face and hands.

the death of the kid by the falling glass in 2 was hysterical for some reason.

I can watch this stuff over and over. Love the pipe/airbag one and also the drive thru/truck one in 3 which was so ridiculously over the top. Got he Canadian Blu-Ray of this so you can see the brain matter on the road nice and clear :)

One would think death could just make you die without all the theatrics. Like give you an aneurysm or something.

RichC2

Yeah but where's the fun? Unless that aneurysm causes you to fall off a handglider ... into a meat grinder ... that gets hit by a semi ... carrying explosives.

This is actually the reason I like these films. The supernatural twist aside, we are more likely to die in some random accident than to be hunted down by a serial killer. Plus I dig the mousetrap-like setups, which I find far more creative than anything in the Saw films.

I love this series. My favorite was the second. Like said previously, they're fun and self aware and the setups are really creative. I'm happy to see that the team in charge of the second outting is back for the fourth. They really seem to have a great sense of how to play with audience expectations and just go all out with it.

Agreed. Also thought that one was pretty funny.

Could be because..

The look on the face of the kid when he sees the pigeons and he starts to chase after them. Also the amount of splatter in that scene, as a horror fan you just have to laugh

I wouldn't know if they're hard to watch, but I do find it hard to go to the theater to see them. And hard to turn on the TV to the right cable channel when they're on. Just can't bring myself to do it. It's really, really hard.

Well, I mean, any anxiety you might feel watching these movies is intentional. Most people have it in the back of their minds that planes could crash, a horrendous road accident could occur, a rollercoaster might break. That's the idea.

are you serious? you think about the fragility of life with the extraordinary, could almost never happen in a billion years deaths from this franchise? c'mon...a little overboard no?

none of these deaths show the agonizing sometimes long deaths from lung cancer or pancreatic cancer or prostate cancer. none of them show a sudden heart attack or car accident via DUI of another driver. none of them show coronary heart disease or babies dying from SIDS or anyone dying from AIDS.

now, if the movies showed these then i might be more sympathetic and become introspective, but death by smooshing from large glass sheet or falling catwalk through the eyes or getting trapped in a sun tanning machine and burned to a crisp or head chopped off from debris strewn from a passing train or neon signage or multiple deaths from an exasgerated sp? roller coaster accident or head chopped clean off by lowering elevator or...

yeah, like they filled a manniquin (sp) with blood and grue and just dropped a plate of glass on it and watch it sploosh all over the place - kind of like that scene from 'Robocop' where Miguel gets hit by the car.

Freak accidents happen every day. Why the death scenes in FD are extraordinary, it reminds me how easy it is to lose your life. I remember this story:

http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent/dws/dn/latestnews/stories/012909dnmetdeadlyfall.123ebca6.html


Also, I know there is an article somewhere on wiki about people who died unusual deaths.

I wouldn't call the posts annoying as much as inane.

Why did I read this thread? Someone recommended it in your second thread started on why you won't be buying any more blu rays. Based on that recommendation I read this thread.

When I saw Gizmo's comment about his fear of flying based on seeing a Superman films, I thought that was a terrific parody of your basis for fear of dying based on seeing the "Final Destination" film series.

Here's something to consider....

Many credit cards have a "death clause" (for any better term), where upon the death of the card holder, his/her cc balance is absolved. The estate would not owe a thing. Something to consider for those who have the constant fear of improbable death and unsecured debt.

Not true - at least in California. We've (my Mother and our lawyers) been battling for months now over that...and it's not working (Citi, BOA, Amex etc.) We've gotten some debt lowered...but community property means they are trying to take from my mom/estate. It's not been fun :(

RonBoster
08-28-09, 01:34 PM
Wow, sorry to hear that. I'm basing that on my families experience back in 92/93. My father died of cancer and the debt on two of his credit cards was wiped free. That was a huge relief to my mom.

Again, my thoughts and wishes are with you and your family...not something you want to deal with when also coping with the death of a loved one.

Thank you. It's certainly not...fun, but I've been helping my mom out with it (along with our Lawyers). We thought it would be wiped clean, but that's not happening. At this point its negotiating to pay a certain % of the bill which is working with some but not others. It's a giant clusterfuck but we're dealing with it. Shame they call 15 times a night though (got my mom a new, unpublished cell #).

And I am not sunk with thousands of dollars of credit card debt like many Americans are right now. I don't have to live paycheck to paycheck. I have enough emergency fund to keep me afloat for a year if I lose my job, and enough to make investments in gold, the one investment that has actually gone up in the worst recession since WW2.

But yea, I can't an IPHONE. At least I won't go hungry when the dollar devalues 40%.

Ya know, you can get a credit card, charge on it, and pay the balance at the end of the month, right? That'll build your credit and you can even earn rewards on it! I'm not in any debt and do it all the time, have a great credit score, and can get many iPhones from AT&T!

Perhaps you should make that investment in gold before all your emergency funds become worth only 40% of what they are now. Because I know when I want to buy an iPhone from AT&T I just walk in and hand them a nugget. I do this at Best Buy as well and to Nissan for my car payment - here's a gold nugget!

I can also do the same thing with a bank debit card keeping better track of finances instead of getting slammed with a large bill at the end of the month.


Honestly, do you think the only reason credit cards are making tons of money is because most Americans are stupid? The system is designed to sink you in debt. I avoided the trap, and I certainly don't feel like a dumbass for doing it.

Also, it is foolish to sink your money into investments before building an emergency fund first. Even buying gold is gambling. Now, if you want to keep attacking me personally in a movie forum, I suggest you do it in private message.

I agree; people that get CCs and put themselves in massive debt are stupid. I am not one of them. Not sure you are giving a real reason why you won't get one though. If you are smart (like me) you will use the CC wisely and then can get an iPhone one day. I've got many investments (gold, stocks, bonds etc.) I'm not worried at all.

And I'm not attacking you. But some of the threads you start get many 'WTF' responses that maybe you should re-think before starting a thread. I mean, really, Final Destination being real? You know how many times people cheat death on a weekly basis? That crash you almost got into going home from work, buying an electronic item that just so happens to not be defective, eating food that could be poisoned etc. We really should start a jessbase34 thread like Scott19548 has.

I'm sorry, again, I'm not in CC Debt. My father, who died 4 months ago, had some CC bills for buying stuff for his business and other things. No, not debt, but general spending that would typically get paid for with his paychecks had he not died. But please, continue on, you are really nailing your points home.

This thread is beyond redemption, but I'll go ahead and share the freakiest death I've ever sort of witnessed. I've worked in a trauma center for 23 years, so I've seen some weird things.

Two guys working for a pruning service were taking care of some trees. They had one of those large chipping machines. One guy was climbing into the trees and throwing down branches into the chute. It had a guard over the opening to allow only things of a certain size to enter. Well, they took off the guard to make the work go faster. You can probably guess the outcome. The guy in the trees slipped off, and fell at just the perfect angle to enter the chute and into the chipper.

The largest piece of him was about the size of half a hand.

Mods, please lock this thread asap. Thank you.

What? No. Just because a couple people are off topic and whining at each other doesn't been the whole thread needs to be locked. If anything, a mod can clean it up by moving you two to the Motel 6.

Then the rest of us can discuss the films if we're not done.

In the interest of keeping this thread on track, my wife and I saw The Final Destination at the drive-in over the weekend and found it hard to watch. I'm not sure if it was because of the deaths or the acting and I'm serious.

There is a large thread specifically set up to discuss that movie.

This thread was about Jeff's angst over the series as a whole and how it relates to his fear of dying from unnatural causes ....think of the game "mouse trap" and instead of a trap it might be a large ax coming down after a series of seemingly unrelated actions.

[....] Now, if you want to keep attacking me personally in a movie forum, I suggest you do it in private message.
That is not a good way to go.

If PMs degenerate into attacks then the member(s) involved risk(s) suspension.... or worse.Already reported you for your PM to me.You started this shit, not me.Two "wrongs" don't make a "right".

If you feel that a member is stalking or harrassing you, by all means make a report and put him/her/it on ignore via your Control Panel.You know, I was man enough to let you have the last word, BUT no, you still had to talk more shit. Ok, I know you people hate me, gives you no fucking right to derail my OP and take shots at me. Personal attacks have no business in a movie discussion forum, and I came here discussing MOVIES.

Then the rest of us can discuss the films if we're not done.This interesting thread has derailed into an even more entertaining argument between jeff and Gizmo. MOD's, PLEASE do not lock this.
-popcorn-


EDIT: I'm with Gizmo on this one, and I'm sorry about your father.Although in the forums I moderate I will sometimes take the time to split off-topic bickering that threatens to derail I'm not currently in a position to do that here, so....

.... would anyone and everyone choosing to post in this thread henceforth please ignore the examples of acrimonious back and forth and try to remain on topic.

And I am asking the two protagonists NOW to set this aside and avoid the temptation to carry on the argument elsewhere.

Thank you all in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
