Final Destination 2

Genre: Horror, Mystery and Thriller; Starring: A.J. Cook, Michael Landes, Ali Larter, Terrence Carson; Director: David Ellis; Author: J. Mackye Gruber; Release Date Wide: 01/31/2003; Status: In Season; Runtime (in minutes): 90; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: New Line Cinema

After violently disposing of plane crash survivors in 2000’s clever original, the Grim Reaper sets his scythe on tidying up loose ends – like coed Kimberly (A.J. Cook), who foresees a bloody highway pileup and blocks an on-ramp with her SUV. The death-defiers must then elude inventive executions like a flying fence. Heavy-handed (”Highway to Hell” plays on the radio) and with corpse-stiff dialogue, the gratuitously gory frightfest shocks mostly because it still manages to scare.

EXTRAS Pop-up screens – linking to digital secrets and more – make the film’s superfluous talking parts less tedious, and the commentary reveals a scene deemed too gross to make the final cut.
