Comments:

I LOVED the idea behind this movie, namely that if someone cheats death and lives on, death is one POed Mofo and goes gunning for them. Plus it didn't hurt that James Wong, one of the best X-Files writers, had directing duty. I was a little disappointed in the execution, but this was still a pretty good movie. The idea is that a class of kids is heading to Europe for a summer. However, one of the kids (Sawa) freaks out, has a premonition of the coming plane crash, and manages to get a group of his friends to get off of the plane with him. They are all bitching him out when the plane explodes in full view shortly after takeoff. These kids have cheated death, and death wants some revenge. It's not long before they start dying off in gruesome ways. The remaining kids must try to somehow trick death into leaving them alone. This is worth a buy, if not for the execution then surely for the awesome idea behind the movie.
