  • New on DVD

    "Final Destination 5" (R, 92 minutes). Nothing in life is certain but death and sequels. "Final Destination 5" isn't as novel as it hopes to be, but it gets the job done. More playful than the old "Friday the 13th" and "Halloween" series, this series offered something new. Here, the villain is fate itself, a sense that the entire physical world is loaded with inevitable death for those who somehow evade the Reaper the first time he comes calling. The camera in "FD5" treats inanimate objects — say, malfunctioning air conditioners — as killers whose mindlessness only makes them more unstoppable. Once the initial trigger happens, there's not a lot of fun left in the scene. Writer Eric Heisserer and director Steven Quale do manage a couple of grisly, postmortem punch lines after viewers think the violence has reached its conclusion. But one or two of the gags are mean-spirited enough to kill the humor. Contains vulgar language and pervasive, over-the-top gore.
