Final Destination 2 [DVD] [2003]

Final Destination 2's macabre roller coaster ride can now be enjoyed on DVD thanks to New Line Cinema's Infinifilm line. The disc is double sided, so the image is available in both widescreen (1.85:1) and standard pan-and-scan versions. Sound options range from Dolby Digital 5.1 to a DTS 6.1 track. Commentary is also provided by director David Ellis, producer Craig Perry, and screenwriters Eric Bress and J. Mackye Gruber. The discussion is light and insightful, with Perry dominating most of the discussion while giving various insights into the life of a horror producer. This being an Infinifilm release, it's full of other special features, the highlight being the "Bits and Pieces: Bringing Death to Life" documentary. Almost 30 minutes in length, the feature starts off with the history of cinema gore (including some fun interview clips from the "Godfather of Gore" Herschell Gordon Lewis) and then focuses on each Final Destination 2 death and the steps the special effects wizards took to pull them off. You'll also find "The Terror Gauge" -- a neat, but eventually lacking, feature in which a doctor straps a group of kids down while studying their fright levels as they watch the film. The third featurette is probably the most throw-away: "Cheating Death: Beyond & Back," a collection of interviews from various strange folk who've survived near-death experiences. An interested "Fact Track" is supplied, along with the Infinifilm pop-up screen, which lets the viewer go deeper into certain scenes by branching in small featurettes during the film. Some deleted scenes are also offered (with optional commentary), although don't get your hopes up for more blood, as these were mostly filmed for expositional purposes. Finally, the disc contains trailers for not only the two Final Destination films, but also Highwaymen, another road thriller from The Hitcher's director, Robert Harmon. All in all, this gruesome DVD is a home run, although some may find the Infinifilm menus frustratingly hard to navigate. If New Line is to adapt more of their releases with this line, hopefully they will figure out a better menu design.

Synopsis

Final Destination 2
Death lurks, and two teenage girls try to figure out where he's heading, in this sequel to the unexpected teen horror hit Final Destination. As Clear Rivers (Ali Larter), the only surviving passenger of the ill-fated Flight 180, waits in a mental institution, certain Death will claim her, Kim (A.J. Cook), who has begun to display precognitive powers, is driving along the highway when she sees a terrible accident in which several cars crash into a logging truck. Moments later, the horrible vision is gone, but Kim is certain she saw an accident that was supposed to happen but didn't...and now Death will track down the souls he meant to take that day who slipped through his fingers. A police officer, Thomas Burke (Michael Landes), believes there's a germ of truth in Kim's story, and teams her up with Clear in hopes that together they can help prevent Death from snuffing out any more of the people involves in the accident that wasn't. Tony Todd also returns from the first film as Mr. Bludworth. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
