Final Destination 5 – Trailer Dissection

Final Destination 5

With the Saw franchise (probably) over we’re left with only one horror franchise to guiltily enjoy long after it remained fresh and relevant. Final Destination 5 has a new trailer this week and below the video we’ve dissected the trailer, focussing mostly on the elaborate deaths… because that’s what this franchise is all about.

To watch this video, you need the latest Flash-Player and active javascript in your browser.


On to the dissection…

Classic Premonition Scene

In which we meet our gang of survivors/future victims and one foresees their deaths. They then evacuate the area and witness the premonition come true. Phew. Bonus points if you can spot the man getting hit in the head.

(Not So) Elaborate Death #1

In which a woman slips on a ring and falls out of a window. In a hospital no less.

Elaborate Death #2

In which a man receives acupuncture, falls on his front and somehow catches on fire.

Elaborate Death #3

In which a hook on a crane knocks a man off a walkway before eventually… “catching” him.

Elaborate Death #4

In which a screw falls from an air conditioning unit and onto a balancing beam. A gymnast lands on the screw and… dies? Of tetanus?

Elaborate Death #5

In which a woman’s eye is forced open for laser eye surgery, the doctor leaves the room and the fuse box blows. This obviously results in the laser going beyond the recommended wattage. It doesn’t end well.

Looks like a classic Final Destination to me. Can’t wait.
