Did you know?
In Tod's death scene, the shot of the leaking water was played forward as it came out. The footage was simply rolled backwards to give the effect that it is sucked back under the toilet.

When Carter is driving to "take control", the train Alex sees out his window is number 747, which is the type of plane that blew up.

Alex's full name is Alex Chance Browning.

Alex dreamt that there was a decompression and part of the plane's fuselage broke off. This would neither be related to the scavenger fuel pump explosion nor would it cause such an explosion.

When the 747 is supposedly in a nosedive, items can be seen falling down, toward the front of the cabin, as if the aircraft was still. The G-forces caused by a high speed dive would pull items up, toward the back of the cabin.

When Clear is in the car, she moves the lever all the way to the bottom which for an automatic would be 1st gear, yet when she hits the gas the car goes backward.

Who is Bludworth?
Bludworth (Tony Todd) is the mortician that Clear Rivers (Ali Larter) and Alex Browning (Devon Sawa) meet when investigating Tod Waggner (Chad Donella)'s body at the mortuary. He represents the charismatic figure of Charon from Greek mythology. His job is to welcome and carry the souls of dead people to their final destination. Without his help, the souls are doomed to wander forever. However, the character's role was left ambigous in the film, and his backstory was never touched upon.
Is "Final Destination" based on a book?
No. The story for Final Destination was first conceived by American screenwriter Jeffrey Reddick as a episode of "The X Files" (1993-2002), which was inspired by the real-life TWA Flight 800 crash. Reddick's story was made into a screenplay by Reddick, along with American producers Glen Morgan and James Wong (who also directed the movie). The popularity of the movie has led, so far, to four sequels, Final Destination 2 (2003), Final Destination 3 (2006), The Final Destination (2009), and Final Destination 5 (2011), actually a prequel to the events of this movie, plus several novels and a comic book series.
