We gave it a B

In this cheesy-yet-chilling thriller from X-Files alumni James Wong and Glen Morgan, six lucky souls narrowly avoid boarding a doomed plane — only to get knocked off in maddeningly macabre ways. Though it falls victim to typical teen-flick frustrations (Do the adults ever figure out what’s going on?), Final Destination contains some truly shocking send-offs. You’ll never look at the toilet the same way again. B
