Eleven years later and the Final Destination franchise is still going strong for a reason, and it probably has to do with how much we enjoy seeing the new sick and twisted ways the filmmakers come up with to kill people off.
In the opening disasters alone, Final Destination has covered a wide spectrum ranging from taking down innocent victims on an airplane to watching them spin out of control on a rogue rollercoaster. However, one thing remains true for all of these epic openings: they’re eerily relatable (save for the racetrack travesty in The Final Destination, for me at least). And the trend continues this August 12th when Final Destination 5 arrives in theaters.
While the majority of the Final Destination deaths are the kind that manage to stick with you long after the credits roll, there are a few that pack concepts and imagery that are not only unforgettable, but might make you think twice before indulging in even a menial daily activity. Scroll through for our our 8 favorite deaths.
