Ah, Final Destination, one of my favorite franchises. The movies are a tone of fun and filled with crap loads of gore. They also make the average person terrified of mundane things like tanning beds and drive-thru windows. Here’s the top five things I’m terrified of now thanks to Final Destination.
NUMBER FIVE – a breeze
In the movies, a breeze signifies that death is approaching. It flutters papers and photographs, makes curtains move on their own, causes shadows to cascade up the wall. And it all means that death is heading your way. So, yeah, if I’m in my house or office and I feel a breeze…I’m pretty sure I’m going to die.
NUMBER FOUR – driving behind a semi
This is scary regardless, you should always be on high alert when driving on a highway behind or next to a semi truck. They are much bigger than you and will take you the fuck down. But Final Destination 2 made it SO much worse. So now whenever I’m behind a logging truck or a semi, I’d rather just pull over and walk thanks.
NUMBER THREE – BBQ’s
Those things have PROPANE IN THEM! THEY ARE GIANT BOMBS! And even if they aren’t, because quite frankly I don’t know how BBQ’s work…Final Destination 2 has led me to believe that all BBQ’s will kill me. I have never used a BBQ and I never will. And when I’m at a BBQ party, you bet your ass I’m at least 50ft from it at all times. Because you never freakin’ know….
NUMBER TWO – NASCAR in general
The Final Destination opening scene has made me terrified of attending any sort of racing event. Not that I really had any intention in the first place as that would involve me leaving my house. BUT after seeing this, you couldn’t pay me enough money to attend one. There are just so many damn ways to die! Tire to the face, collapsed seating, engine ripping you apart etc etc NO THANK YOU
NUMBER ONE – Swimming Pools
Granted, I am already afraid of water – I cannot swim at all and I’m super afraid of open water. Pools I was pretty much okay with. Until I read a novel by Chuck Palahniuk Haunted and one particular story, Guts. I was like….yep…I’m out. Then The Final Destination came about and brought my fears to life on screen. A drainage system sucking your organs out of your damn butt. I’m good thanks. I’ll be over here on the side of the pool, underneath an umbrella, covered in sun tan lotion ready to call 911.
