Watch: 'Final Destination' Producer Creates Pitch Trailer for a Potential Sequel, 'Final Destination: The Dark Age'

Final Destination 6 artIt’s been a few years since we’ve had a new Final Destination film, which leads us to wonder if Death himself figured he’d earned an extended vacation after five films filled with Rube Goldberg-esque murder sequences. If he did take a break, it appears as though his siesta could be about to end.

Franchise producer Craig Perry is interested in making another installment in the brutally amusing series, but rather than just go back to the same old well of ideas, he’s prepared to take Final Destination in an entirely new direction – back in time.

Perry’s come up with the idea of making a new entry set in the Middle Ages – and I think that’s a pretty great approach. Horror franchises are usually in trouble when they make a sequel set in outer space (although I’ll cop to digging Jason X a lot), but going back in time? It’s sort of like Army of Darkness...

Perry has crafted a rough “proof of concept” piece to demonstrate what a Final Destination film set during the plague years might look like. It’s comprised of countless clips from other films, but it does certainly make you think. The Middle Ages were a superstitious time, and with the plague and all that happening, it seems like it would be a really great time to be Death.

Check out the clip below. Final Destination: The Dark Age is not an official project at this point, but if this clip generates some buzz we may well see it move into the production at some point in the not-too-distant future. Are you up for some more elaborately crafted murder set pieces? Chime in below.
