Final Destination 2
What better way to start this journey than to start with a bang! For those that don’t know, Final Destination is a film franchise that follows the lives of its protagonists, until the inevitable moment in which they meet their fate. The franchise, although exaggerated and extremely spooky, is well known for the little hints placed in the lead up to major moments. Making sure that the audience is always well prepared when death rears its ugly head.
Let’s take Evan from Final Destination 2 for example, he survives numerous near-death experiences in the film, just to look death right in the face (literally) when an escape ladder quite vividly impales his right eye. In true Final Destination style, an Easter egg so obvious you wouldn’t be able to miss it at your elementary school’s Easter egg hunt is seen on the fridge. Minutes before we see magnets on Evan’s fridge that spell out ‘HEYE’, mysteriously enough the letter ‘H’ goes missing, leaving the letters ‘EYE’. Coincidence? I think not.
