CD Review: FINAL DESTINATION 5 soundtrack

Death wasn’t proud when it took Shirley Walker after her three, mordantly thrilling scores to the FINAL DESTINATION saga. And though its fifth verse is the same as the first, Walker’s black-humored approach has been continued with telltale, twisted finesse by Brian Tyler, who joined the franchise with entry four. Even with all those numbers, the series has arguable found its best footing since the original with five, buoyed on by Tyler’s bombastic approach that plays each ghastly Rube-Goldberg gore wind-up with the freshness of the series’ first death. Beginning with a rock guitar and orchestral head banger that throws […]Read On »

New Line Cinema held a Los Angeles Special Screening of FINAL DESTINATION 5 on August 10th at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre.

Death is nowhere to be seen on the set of FINAL DESTINATION on this chilly December afternoon. In fact, Death is perhaps the cheapest actor working on the long-running franchise, that’s because Death is an unseen force – manipulating the kills in very complex and clever ways, but never showing his (her, its) face. Of course every actor working on this latest installment (once again filmed in 3-D and hitting theaters nationwide tomorrow) is excited by what kind of horribly, gruesome ways Death has engineered for them to die on screen. For Emma Bell and Nicholas D’Agosto, they reveal that […]Read On »

On a cold December afternoon in Vancouver, Canada, production on FINAL DESTINATION 5 (which opens nationwide on Friday) is only a few days away as the filmmakers are busy picking up all the filmic pieces for the film’s stunning major opening set piece. Whereas other FINAL DESTINATION movies have used planes, speedways, roller coasters and the highway as the major threat source, this time out a suspension bridge provides the opening scene mechanism that sets the film’s game play into motion. While production has already shot the real-life pieces of this major puzzle on Vancouver’s Lions Gate Bridge, now it’s […]Read On »

It’s an overcast day in Vancouver, Canada as ASSIGNMENT X visits the set of FINAL DESTINATION 5 – the latest chapter in the successful horror franchise that seems to top itself each time out (the film opens nationwide on Friday). The December Vancouver haze, certainly adds to the flavor of visiting the set which this time uses a suspension bridge as the catalyst for Death to start picking off victims one by one. The plot mechanisms are key to each FINAL DESTINATION films (the first one was an airplane crash, the second a freeway pile-up, the third a roller coaster […]Read On »

On CW’s LIFE UNEXPECTED, now wrapping out its second and (most likely) final season on Tuesdays, former high school sweethearts Cate (Shiri Appleby) and Nate (Kristoffer Polaha) are brought back together when their now sixteen-year-old daughter Lux (Brittany Robertson) – given up for adoption by Cate at birth – comes back into their lives. Cate’s now-husband Ryan, played by Kerr Smith, does his best to be the grown-up in the situation, since Lux is chronologically a teenager and Cate and Nate both still sometimes act like they are. Smith spoke with ASSIGNMENT X about playing it relatively straight on the […]Read On »
