Final Destination 5Death tries to get the upperhand again in Final Destination 5. Despite being released in 3D in theaters, the horror movie’s home release includes DVD and Blu-ray but not Blu-ray 3D.

This time, it’s Nicholas D’Agosto (From Prada to Nada) who has the premonition and thus saves himself and numerous others, including Miles Fisher (Gods and Generals) and Emma Bell (Elektra Luxx), from death in a horrific bridge collapse. When death comes after them, the group must race against time to keep a step ahead. Courtney B. Vance (TV’s FlashForward) and David Koechner (A Good Old Fashioned Orgy) also star.

The R-rated movie is the first feature film directed by Steven Quale, whose last movie was documentary Aliens of the Deep.

Final Destination 5 Blu-ray boxFinal Destination 5 grossed a tidy $42 million in wide release in theaters, and it got not-bad reviews. New Yorker‘s Bruce Diones said, “a surprising infusion of energy and macabre humor reanimates this horror franchise.”

The Blu-ray/DVD combo comes with these special features:

  • “Circle of Death”
  • alternate death scenes
  • “Visual Effects of Death: Collapsing Bridge”
  • “Visual Effects of Death: Airplane Crash”
  • and instant streaming with UltraViolet digital copy.
