    Hey, FoundFlix. I'm not sure if you've ever done this or not, but I was wondering if you could do the Timeline Explained for the Final Destination series? Why Mr. Death (I know he has a name, but still) always explains the survivors that the Reaper is pissed, like he's either experienced it before? How come the "symbol of death" is introduced by the wind and/or a scary shadow? And how The Final Destination takes place at the same time the first Final Destination movie?

    If you combine the story of the abortion plot with billy and angus, it seeme like maybe he got his sister pregnant, and used that same line about abortion being akin to getting a watt removed, the screams of agnis being billy attempting to “give her and abortion” in some way or another either legitimately killing her or her death being a byproduct of a dangerous abortion. This could have led to him forming this psychosis, and why he killed all of the women but kept them around.

    This isn't really an "ending explained" video as you only spend a few minutes on that. This is more of a recap of the movie which is fine, but the title of the video is misleading.

    I've been watching horror films since I was a little girl. Growing up in the 80s, I saw all of the classics on VHS. Friday the 13th, Halloween, A Nightmare on Elm Street, etc. None of them scared me. Only Black Christmas did. I was terrified. Such a great film!

    She's still alive. Billy killed Peter, not jess. That's why he called the house, he had killed Peter.

    Um... the cat was nice and everything, but I kind of want to know more about why there was a hook and pulley in an attic. Is that just an old house thing, or is it some kind of plot hole?

    Wait wait wait wait wait... The police left a traumatized woman in the same house as a half dozen bodies? What the hell?
    Also, from what Billy keeps saying, it sounds like some rape/killing in his family.

    You know, I almost always take the stance that old movies suck. People like to claim that they’re “classics” and that I’m missing out somehow. Today, my TVclip friend, you have made me want to watch an old movie. You get the thumbs up for the video and an extra one in my comment. 👍🏽

    Why is that bit of dialogue about possibly checking the attic not on the blu ray? It makes the police force look slightly less incompetent if there is a reason why they didn't.

    You have such a strong and confident presentation yet, you didn't analyze anything. You just went through all the plot points and stated the obvious throughout. Come on, you can do better.

    I don’t know why but Claire’s blank expression when she’s sitting in the chair creeps me out, especially in the scene where billy throws a temper tantrum and he violently rocks her. But all in all this is a exceptionally well made horror movie and is still in my opinion one of the best, the ending and the unknown identity of the killer are what sold me on watching this film. Merry Christmas everyone!

    I'm shocked that this movie's ending requires any kind of explanation. The climax is simple and clear ... no ambiguity, no head-scratching from the viewer. This video's title alone triggered my comment.

    In addition to the theory that the house belonged to him. Not only was he able to successfully get in and remain hidden but in the scene in which Barb was murdered he affectionately refers to her as Agnes. This may be hinting to the fact that this was his sister's room. Just a thought
