Final Destination script
Synopsis: Final Destination is an American horror franchise composed of five films, comic books and novels. It is based on an unproduced spec script by Jeffrey Reddick, originally written for the X-Files television series, and was distributed by New Line Cinema. All five films center around a small group of people that escape impending death when one individual (the protagonist of each film) has a sudden premonition and warns them that they will all die in a terrible mass-casualty accident. After evading their foretold deaths, the survivors are killed one by one in bizarre accidents caused by an unseen force engineering complicated chains of cause and effect, resembling Rube Goldberg machines in their complexity.

KEN (Cont'd)

Seventeen and on the loose.

Ten days in Paris. In the

springtime! Live it up, Alex...

CAMERA INCHES INTO KEN as he winks at his son...

KEN (Cont'd)

Got your whole life ahead

ALEX:

CAMERA CREEPS IN as, oddly, the words strike him portentously...

CUT TO:

INT. ALEX'S BEDROOM - LATER

The storm has ceased. The room is QUIET.

As if itself a presence, CAMERA CREEPS across the dark and motionless room

TOWARD Alex, sleeping soundly. CAMERA CRANES DOWN to the level of the bed

until Alex is in the f.g. and the room is visible behind him.

On the rear wall, the Fighting Colonials pennant begins to flutter slightly,

as if affected by the moving breeze. The path, of which is continues toward

the bed, rustling the sheets, subtly blowing Alex's hair and continuing OVER

CAMERA.

Even in his sleep, Alex shivers from the passing cold. His eyes open

surprised to be suddenly awakened. He considers for a beat, then looks

toward...

THE WINDOWS:

which... are closed.

ALEX:

puzzled, checks...

THE TABLE FAN:

which is off.

ALEX:

perplexed, rolls over toward his digital clock. It's 1:00 a.m., however...

the middle digit bar in the first zero faintly flickers so this time appears

to read... 1:
80.
