Death is tying up loose ends in this sequel to Final
The premise of the first Final Destination: while on
an airplane buckled-in and ready to take-off to Paris with his
French class, a teenager has a premonition of the airplane
crashing, causing him to panic and get ejected from the plane
with five of his classmates and a teacher. Sure enough, the
plane crashes. Then one-by-one the seven plane crash
survivors meet with horrible accidents, showing you can't cheat
death! But you need one person to cheat death so they can
appear in a sequel, right? So enter Clear Rivers (Ali
In Final Destination 2, on the one-year
anniversary of the plane crash, Kimberly Corman (A.J. Cook)
embarks on a road trip with three of her friends to Daytona

But soon the accident "survivors" begin meeting
with horrible deaths, convincing Kimberly that what is happening
to them is the same thing that happened to the survivors of the

in a padded cell to avoid the grim reaper. Throwing
caution to the wind, Clear tries to help Kimberly and the other
car-crash-that-wasn't "victims" find a way to keep
death away from their doorsteps.

to peek out of one eye at times - and then go back and watch in
See this movie for the horrific car accident scene
alone. I was scared to drive for a few days after seeing
the the metal death pit. Be sure to listen closely to hear
the barely audible evil laughter in the background while the
accident is occurring.
