The Final Loren Cass
Loren Cass: “I seriously cannot give you a plot description. Nothing of any substance happens. There’s a skinhead and a mechanic who get into fist fights with a gaggle of black kids who drive around in a white van. The only female character works in a diner and spends all of her time having sex with guys. In her bedroom, in other people’s bedrooms, in the backseat of her car after work. She’s like the Sam-I-Am of fuckpuppetry. Everyone is miserable. Everyone wants to leave. The end.” - Brian Prisco
The Final Destination: “The Final Destination, conversely, fails in every way that a horror movie could possibly appeal to you. There is no fear. There is no anticipation. There is no surprise. And there is no schadenfreude. I’m not sure if it’s the repetition of the series, but it’s become too rote. There’s no anticipation because we know what’s going to happen and when. And there’s no surprise because, at this point, we expect the fake-out. A better director could probably find a few new ways to inject anticipation and energy into the series (as James Wong did in the third installment). But in The Final Destination, David R. Ellis (who also directed the second film) is just listlessly going through the motions.” - Dustin Rowles
