Starring: A.J. Cook and Ali Carter
Directed by: David R. Ellis
Final Destination 2 is even wilder than the first! Eek. Okay
it's not an academy award winning script - what did you expect?
But as far as pure adrenalin pumping horror goes? It's a friggitini
masterpiece; a thrill ride that grabs you by the neck and catapults
you through the elaborate and intricate "death" scenes
like a virtual horror house or something. Believe me these scenes
are surprising and original, tricky and shocking for a B style
film- that's saying something. It's just like a horror flick should
be. This is part two, and like first Final Destination
here too is a tried and true premise; you can't beat death when
it comes-a-knocking! But it's the nonstop action and the no-appologies-given
yuckfest that makes you shrill like a teenybopper stuck in the
fun house at the state fair at every shocking effect! Loved it.
Kimberly (A.J. Cook) is heading to Daytona for frolicking,
f**king and fun. But as she's about to get her and her friends
on the interstate she has a mortifying and realistic vision that
she and a gaggle of commuters are hacked up in a hideous chain-reaction
reacts as anybody would and quickly blocks the on ramp with her
SUV. Naturally the folks behind her are ripshit and start protesting.
When the accident occurs just as she predicted they all take a
deep breath - then go on with their lives.
they survive. But as a result, Death aint too happy with the meddling
kid. It decides they all shall die and in a similar manner in
which it had planned. Superscariopolis!
acquaintances catch on fairly quickly something surreal is underway
as they start to drop like flies in a Raid®
commercial. Kimberly has an idea she gathers the survivors and
attempts to prevent any more deadly "coincidences."
Coincidences she's convinced are all too reminiscent of events
from last years group of "survivors" of a catastrophe
(Final Destination One).
a smart little cookie she thinks, maybe, the sole survivor (Ali
Carter) of that past event can help- since somehow - history seems
to be repeating.
they kind of figure out the way to cheat death, but is she willing
to pay the price? Whaoahoahahoahoha (<- evil laugh).
a sad lack of manly eye candy to entertain the shallower of viewers.
But you'd only get all smitten with a hunky beau that's about
to be mutilated in some grand and elaborate way anyway. So it's
probably just as well.
is a wicked goosebump inducing flickaroo! Director David R. Ellis
terrifies us throughout the creepfest. You'll be driving home
slowly and cautiously after this one folks! It's a great date
movie as you'll have an excuse to leap into the lap of your companion
without garnering that pesky tag of "Theater Slut."
