Much like with inbreeding, The Final Destination series has degraded in quality with each film. The first was a unique twist on the horror genre, the second compensated for its weak story with impressive gore sequences, the third happened, and the NASCAR-based fourth installment was the film equivalent of a mongoloid. BUT it was a 3D mongoloid and 3D equals big box office.
With that being said, Warner Bros. head bro Alan Horn announced at ShoWest that a fifth installment of the franchise will be breathing through its mouth in the near future. Why? "Because we couldn’t resist," according to Horn.
