Our Score
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.


A teenager's grim premonition saves his schoolmates from dying in a plane crash, but despite their narrow escape, the vengeful spirit of death refuses to be outwitted and the survivors fall victim to a series of bizarre mishaps. Horror, starring Devon Sawa, Ali Larter, Kerr Smith, Kristen Cloke and Seann William Scott.
