Hitting theaters this Friday is Final Destination 5, a film that is approximately 10,000 times more fun and creative than you are probably expecting. While it follows the same structure as the last four, this time inserting a young chef as the lead and a suspension bridge failure as the initial disaster, the film as a whole is actually very, very well made and shockingly well written and acted. If you like darkly humorous horror films, this is not one to skip.
Last weekend, I sat down with Jacqueline MacInnes-Wood, Ellen Wroe and Miles Fisher (who is about to be a very big star) to discuss the film. In our interview, we talked about the brutal and funny death scenes, how much of the gore is done practically, the Saved by the Bell influenced music video that Fisher conceived to help sell the film, and we got a quick update on Clint Eastwood’s J. Edgar and more. Hit the jump to watch.
Here is Fisher’s video (Semi-NSFW). It’s definitely worth watching.
