Final Destination fans, listen up! Horror Movie a Day will pay tribute to the late, great David Ellis with a 10-year anniversary midnight screening of Final Destination 2 at the New Beverly on March 16.
So we all pretty much know the basic slasher film tropes that earn a horror character the 'final girl' title, right? For those of you at the back who fell asleep during your last film theory lesson; it's pretty much as it sounds – the last character left after the dust, blood and all kinds of unspeakable carnage has finally settled. She's the one that demonstrates exceptional perseverance in the face of abject terror and most importantly, the one who subdues the maniac once and for all -or until the next sequel at least.
Director David R. Ellis died early this morning. Best known for Snakes on a Plane, the director was 60 years old.
