Final Destination (2000) trivia:
Much of the news footage shown is actual footage from the July 1996 crash of TWA Flight 800 off East Moriches, Long Island, New York.
When the students are boarding the plane, Alex looks down from the jetway and sees a luggage cart with the number 666 on it.
The story was originally the concept for an abandoned television script for The X-Files.
The original plan was to have death as a much more obvious entity in the film, as it was in Tod's death (with Tod seeing a shadow in the mirror and the water running back to the toilet to "cover its tracks") but after Tod's death, it was decided to have the deaths as accidents.
