Trivia

(at around 13 mins) The coffee shop is called "Death by Caffeine", and naturally has several death related items on its menu. These include "Knocking On Death's Door Latte", "Iced Mocha Fatality", "Iced Vanilla Demise", "Frozen Chai Casualty", "Last Exit Truffles", and "River Of Sticks Biscotti". See more »

Goofs

(at around 1h 8 mins) During the escalator scene, Lori's right foot was crushed by the escalator's conveyor belt. This makes her spit out blood, and that is not supposed to happen. Since only her limbs were hurt or injured, she wouldn't spit out blood. We only spit out blood if our head, chest, or abdomen are injured or hurt. See more »

Quotes

George Lanter: I'm sorry for your loss.
Racist: Well? Nobody lives forever, nigger.
Nick: Hey there's no need for that, man.
Racist: Back off, you fucking freak!
George Lanter: It's time for you to leave, sir.
Racist: Time? Your time's coming, chocolate.

The worst in the series
30 August 2009 | by jinkazama10See all my reviews

This was the worst entry in the series for the following reasons:

1. At approximately 80 minutes the film is too short and there isn't any sort of time given to building up tension.

2. Pretty much all of the deaths are given away in the previews, so when someone dies its no surprise whatsoever. By taking away the surprise aspect the movie was ruined.

3. There is even less of a plot here then the other 3. Granted the basic premise is the same but they didn't even try here.

4. The deaths themselves were very "meh" and fake looking. Way too much CGI was used. Not only that but they cut away from what probably would have been the most visually interesting death. 5. No Tony Todd. He was seen in the first 2 and heard in the 3rd one. At this point the fans expect to see him. They should have tried to get him in here somehow.

I could go on and on. I hope that if they make a 5th one that James Wong (who directed the first and third films) returns to give the series a proper send off as the David Ellis entries to the franchise (the second and fourth films) are definitely the weakest links in the series. To his credit though, part 2 did probably have some of the best deaths in the series (opening premonition, fire escape ladder, and plate glass).
