I checked this movie after hearing some good stuff about it and I'm glad I did, because it has an interesting mix of Unbreakable and Final Destination. The story is about a woman who is the sole survivor in a plane crash, who begins to see people who are supposedly dead all around her. Apparently she was supposed to die so they've come to collect her. Sound familiar?

In the movie there is a strange lady who actually predicts the plane crash and the woman surviving, but surprisingly she didn't have much of a bigger role as I thought she would. I figured they would try to help each other, but it didn't really turn out that way. The movie actually has some slight creepy moments, but nothing too good as for scares.

The plot is original and good. It's obvious that Final Destination borrowed from the story. The effects are pretty decent for the dead people and I really enjoyed the ending. The directing and acting was pretty good too. I've decided to give it a 6-rating and nothing higher, because it slowed down in parts and I wasn't too into that. Otherwise it's a good movie.

An original underrated horror film from the 80s. Worth a look if you can get your hands on it.
