Death returns for another wild ride in the latest "5nal Destination." With the series' original producers on board, a script by the red-hot writer of A Nightmare on Elm Street [2010] and the eagerly anticipated remake of The Thing ... and Jim "King of the World" Cameron's protégé Steven Quale behind the camera (as he's done for both Avatar and Titanic), this latest lethal thrill ride follows on the almost $200 million worldwide box-office of the fourth installment. With a cast that includes Heroes' Nick D'Agosto, The Walking Dead's Emma Bell, Friday the 13th's Arlen Escarpeta, The Office's David Koechner and Candyman's Tony Todd (an original alumni of the "Destination" series), The Grim Reaper's sure to have a field day with life-threatening 3D sequences including a suspension bridge collapse, laser eye surgery gone wrong and other fiendishly clever ways to perish!

More elaborate, inevitable deaths in grisly, gory franchise.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this is the fifth entry in a gory horror franchise that made the intensity-upping move to 3D with the previous entry, The Final Destination. As always, the killer here is death itself, which stalks a group of teens and/or twentysomethings without remorse or recourse -- and with tons of blood and gore. Characters are brutally sliced, stabbed, burned, dropped from heights, crushed, and snapped in half. There's also a bit of kissing and sexual innuendo, some language (including "f--k" and "s--t"), and some drinking.
