3 out of 5

The X-Files veteran James Wong makes his feature debut with this entertaining supernatural horror movie, in which the principals' surnames are taken from legendary genre figures from the past such as Murnau, Lewton and Chaney. It's as if the teen slasher and the disaster flick had met in the Twilight Zone, as Devon Sawa's premonition of a midair disaster comes explosively true and Death begins to stalk those who escaped thanks to Sawa's timely intervention. The premise is flawed and the exposition clumsy, but the methods of demise are as hilarious as they are ingenious, with Wong more intent on toying with our expectations than providing outright shocks.

Plot Summary

Supernatural horror thriller starring Devon Sawa and Ali Larter. Shortly before take off on a flight to France, student Alex Browning is so overcome by powerful visions of a midair explosion that he and his party are ejected from the plane. When Alex's dreadful premonition comes true it appears that the group have cheated death - but the terrifying forces at work are not going to be denied.
