[[folder: Series-wide ]]

* The entire concept is bad enough. (Oh, you managed to avoid dying? Fine. Now your death will be several times more horrifying, painful, or both.) Then there are some of the deaths themselves, and [[YouCantFightFate the movies' premise]]. Specifically, the opening disaster scenes, which prey on our everyday fears (flying, driving, carnival rides and now crossing bridges).
* Bludworth himself seems to be nightmare fuel for various reasons: 1. He is played by The Candyman himself Tony Todd. 2. He knows more about death more than anyone else. 3. This is the big one: He may as well be the reaper himself and only gives the protagonists cryptic advice because he took pity on them. The other characters on the list were either already dead or too busy to talk to him.


[[folder: Final Destination ]]

* Out of all the deaths, one of the most disturbing and drawn out from the first one was the teacher's.


[[folder: Final Destination 2 ]]

* The shadowy, skeletal hands.
* Nora's death by EvilElevator. Especially because ''it can and has actually happened''.


[[folder: Final Destination 3 ]]

* [[Series/{{Mythbusters}} Busted]] or not, the tanning bed death is still horrific.
* Erin's death. For extra ParanoiaFuel, the first video that shows after typing 'Death by nailgun' in Youtube's search bar is a clip of that exact scene. Coincidence much, or maybe this, too, is a part of Death's plan?
* Listening to the song "Roller Coaster of Love" became uncomfortable, as it played as two girls [[spoiler: were burned alive in tanning booths.]]
* The roller coaster sequence at the beginning. Granted coasters don't work that way (they use air for compression on the safety bars to keep them locked down during the high speeds. Not oil as shown here) and the whole thing implausibly started over a camera that was dropped and wrapped itself on the track. But the way the rest of the sequence was shot was still frighteningly realistic. Roller Coasters also are taken care of every morning and have alarm systems if something is wrong with it just so things like that never happen. However, consider some of the deaths like the razor sharp swords at the school and other pointless deaths that seem implausible. The whole planet has NoOSHACompliance. It's very probable that the Roller Coaster really would realistically use a horrible, horrible safety system like that. Death is less of a dick than trying to point out all the mechanical flaws like only he knows... and the Voodoo Shark is gone.


[[folder: The Final Destination ]]

* [[spoiler: Samantha's sons]] watched as [[spoiler: their mother]] had ''a rock launched into her face.''


[[folder: Final Destination 5 ]]

* The nail which was on the gymnastics bar was terrifying. She was going to slice her Achilles tendon or something. But when she actually did die, that was just, AHH. The fact that she's still twitching is even more horrific.
* The [[spoiler:LASIK surgery scene]] in the fifth movie. Holy crap. Even if [[spoiler:LASIK]] doesn't work that way, which should be comforting, but really isn't.
** Something that is also comforting is that [[spoiler:the girl in that whole laser situation got saved by the protagonists, still makes the death possibly greusome and nightmarish, kinda like the car-wash death in final destination 4/The Final Destination.]]
* The whole concept of "Taking another's life for yours", case you don't know it, if you're on Death's list, you ''can'' kill a person who wasn't even on Death's list, be it on purpose or by mistake, they take your spot on the list and you get their lifespan and you're homefree. Sounds fair and well, but then conflict comes in, do you have what it takes to kill a completely innocent person who wasn't even on Death's list, just so you can live longer? It gets worse as you realize that even if you do kill a person, you don't know how long they were even gonna be alive! For all you know, the person can either live for a long time before dying or suddenly die the next day, week, maybe even next hour. The countdown to your impending death doesn't help things either.
* That bloke getting impaled on acupuncture needles, almost burning to death and having his head crushed by a Buddha statue... Just... Damn.
