“Ok. Let’s go with what you guys are saying: let’s just say, you know, that Death does have a conscious plan, and that it’s been set into motion. Great. So, Newton’s Third Law of Motion and well, look, I’m just guessing that it goes for Death, too, when he’s working in our world. Newton says that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. So, that means that if Death has taken action, so can we. And that that action may thwart Death’s intent.” – Ian McKinley

Brief Synopsis – After avoiding death in an amusement park accident, a group of teens try to stay alive when the Grim Reaper still tries to take their souls.
My Take on it – Third chapter in this saga and this time, they use and amusement park disaster as the catalyst for the story.
It’s fun watching the way that the roller coaster ride plays out and pretty gripping when they show the disaster, yet the film itself doesn’t manage to do much else.
Like in all these films, the characters are far too superficial and don;t have much to do besides die.
The way that they are aware of this phenomena leads to some intriguing philosophical debates about death and fate, but overall, this iisn’t that great an addition to the series.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The cast members on the roller coaster had to ride the roller coaster 26 times on the same night in order to shoot the film’s main premonition scene. (From IMDB)
Rating – BAFTA Worthy (5/10)
