Among this cast of unluckies, there is no future Jamie Lee Curtis. But you do take the film home with you -- to all your own toys -- and that's what decent horror is supposed to do.

Final Destination 5 won't be known for any stellar performances, but first-time feature director Steven Qualye can rest assured he scared the daylights out his audiences.

I don't have a lot to say about Final Destination 5 save that, for the first time ever, I actually enjoyed sitting in a theatre watching one of these efforts from beginning to end.

January 27, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Stabs at the dramatic don't amount to anything that makes us care, even for Bell, who has been solid on AMC's The Walking Dead and in the chairlift chiller Frozen.

FD5 is a perfect example of what 3D ultimately does best, which is to make you squirm, shudder and jump in your seat. Enjoy.

Quale knows exactly how to toy with the expectations of his victims (and his viewers) before bringing down the fatal blow from an angle that no-one quite saw coming.What's more, he is not afraid to embrace 3D for the tawdry gimmick that it is

Funnily enough, I didn't hate this. I am still not sure why...

I am constantly amazed when I see folks knocking this series. Unlike me, they must have no sense of humor. For me, this series represents some of the greatest comedies ever made. Even if I've seen one of them before, I still love to watch the build up to the way in which the next victim will meet his/her demise, and when it happens, I roar with laughter -- even after multiple viewings. Now that's my definition of a good movie.

This one actually is one of the funnier ones, and the effects continue in their groundbreaking fashion. The freaky death of the gymnast, that final positon on the mat, hilarious, I kid you not. Seriously, for good laughs, you must watch this series. When you think about it, these are kind of an extension of 1000 Ways To Die. I look forward to the next installment with great anticipation.
