With Ali Larter, A.J. Cook, Michael Landes, Tony Todd

Written J. Mackye Gruber & Eric Bress

Directed by David R. Ellis

The first installment of this teen shocker had its moments - a bunch of kids miss out on death by not boarding a doomed plane, so the invisible Reaper comes after them one by one, dispatching them in all sorts of innovative ways. This time round? A girl has a vision of a car pile-up and holds up traffic, preventing a bunch of people from dying in the crash. The result? Yes, they all get stalked by Death in, guess what, all sorts of innovative (and hilariously gory) ways! Rope in the sole survivor from the first to assist our doomed folk and you have a regurgitated throw-away movie experience with only as much substance as the FX crew put into it - but admitedly entertaining. The cheap shots and lame scares throughout the film are only outweighed by the inventive deaths and pretty spectacular car smash highlight in the first 10 minutes.

Bonus material include alternate- and deleted scenes, music videos, trailers, featurettes like “Beyond Death”, “Bits & Pieces: Bringing Death To Life” and a filmmakers' commentary track.
