I have seen all of these. the first two were the best. this one's the first one. wow the premise that death hungers to get you is scary and logical: disprove it, I dare you, but you'd better hope and pray that death is not offended by your disbelief. actually, whether the filmmakers realize it, or not, the premise--which is outstanding, and is the best part of the film, was inspired by old Sigmund Freud. i say 'old,' because, the cultural assumption, what with the new technocracy, and all that it implies, is that freud has lost relevance, and influence, but this premise, as adumbrated in the film, is merely a reiteration of freud's old 'the death instinct.' when I say, 'angleton cleansed hoover's blackmail files,' I mean, the night of the fbi director's demise, james jesus angleton paid a visit to his house, and came away with those voluminous files. this movie started out at a raceway, not in a plane. still, the premise is what is unique about this series. kept thinking how painstaking it was to design these deus machinas.

i actually liked this one. The sequels, not so much i think after the second one i quit watching them altogether. But the first one i found refreshingly unique for the time.

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

Hmm. I'm not sure if this is the same version i have. It dosen't say "Infini Film" on the cover. One of my favorite parts of this DVD is the special features. Inside, is a feature call the "Death Clock". My friend and i decided to check it out. It ask you a series of questions and then tells you when you are going to die. Day, date and time. As much as my friend loves to talk and brag about everything she does, she was too scared to try the feature. It really shook her up. she kept saying "HELL NO!!!!" Ha,ha,ha. However, this movie didn't scare her as much, as she was too busy telling the characters what to do to avoid death. What!!??? It's a fun movie and should be viewed on your HOMETHEATER! This movie does have good sound and good special effects. And the story wasn't too bad. I also notice that the menu always changed everytime i put it in my DVD player. That's pretty cool! I'm giving this so-so scary horrible movie 4 stars. Good sound, good visual effects, corny but entertaining story, and the Death Clock feature!! Pastrami sandwich with coke and potato chips.

This movie is really dumb. You know what. I don't care. Because it's really, really fun to watch. I've seen every one of these sequels and watched the 3D version in the theater and loved every minute of it. Doesn't really waste time on romance and "talking" - good ol' horror movie that gets right down to the business of - how many crazy ways can we figure out how to off a group of 20 somethings? This franchise of films knows its audience. Tongue in cheek fun. Turn out the lights and get out the popcorn.

Bludworth: You have to realize is that we're just a mouse that a cat has by the tail, every single move we make from the mundane to the monumental, the red light that we stop at or run, the people we have sex with or want with us, the airplanes that we ride or walk out of, it's all part of deaths sadistic design. Leading to the grave.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: A plane full of passengers explodes, a guy is strangled to death by a shower cord, a girl is run over by a bus, a woman has her neck sliced open and is then stabbed in the chest, a guy's head is cut in half, another guy almost drowns in mud but survives, and is later electrocuted; and all of these scenes are shown in full detail.
