Final Destination (2000)
The idea that your death is predestined is the premise behind this film (and the other films in the franchise). You cannot ‘cheat death’ although we like to think we can: when your number’s up, it’s up.
I have mentioned previously that, at the end of the DVD for this film, which I watched at Ross and Rosanna’s home in Swansea, South Wales, UK in early September 2001, is an interactive ‘game’ in which you answer questions about your life and your final destination date is revealed. (Interestingly enough, this was about 10 days before 9-11.) At no time did the program ask when I was born, so the whole exercise seemed to be based on nothing but my present health and lifestyle. (This was also 18 months before I was diagnosed with type-2 diabetes.)
The answer the DVD program gave me was December 7, 2019.
Well, I’m still standing, so Death hasn’t come for me, yet.
I remember it well. Xx
