Final Destination (2000, dir. James Wong)

After a premonition saves them from an air crash a group of teens are targeted by Death itself. Inventive horror flick, taking the convoluted killing sequence trope from the Omen films and re-inventing it for the Scream generation. Tons of fun, a few neat in-jokes, and clever kills aplenty. The first of a series of five films.
