Question: What is the name of the song which plays over the end credits? And is it available to download anywhere?

Chosen answer: It is "And When I Die" performed by Joe 90, based on the Blood Sweat and Tears song. It's available in iTunes.

Question: On the back of the PAL DVD there is a picture of Alex holding back Clear from a car during the day. It looks to be at the place where Terry was killed. Does anyone know if this is a deleted scene not on the DVD? Also, on the commentary the makers of the film said that they shot the bus hit from inside the bus, as well as from the side. Does anyone know where these scenes are now?

Chosen answer: The scene where Terry was killed was most likely shot during the day. It is quite common for film makers to film a scene during the day to get the right lighting effects and then later CGI the night sky and the proper shadowing. This is most effective when you have an area that would otherwise be too dark or have environment that wont allow for the proper lighting for a night shoot. As for the bus, your guess is as good as mine.

Question: I don't get how Alex could have died in Clear's Dad's cabin with the fishing rod opening the door and the rusty fish hook and the knife flying out. What happened behind the door?

Chosen answer: As Alex picks up the fish hook he smiles and says "tetanus". Although not ideal, Death hoped to infect Alex with tetanus, a lot slower a death than intended, but a death nevertheless.

New this month Answer: Carter was the only one killed by the sign, as shown when officer Burke from FD2 looked up Alex Browning after the pile up.

Question: Towards the end of the scene where Alex and Clear are talking to Tony Todd about death, right before they leave Tony Todd says to Alex "I'll see you soon." What does he mean by that?

Chosen answer: He knows Alex is going to die, so he is referring to how he will be seeing Alex's body in the morgue soon.

Question: When Alex and Clear go to the mortuary and talk to Bludworth, he says that the only way to stop Death is to disrupt the order in which they die in. When Alex saves Carter's life before he dies from the train, shouldn't that have disrupted the order and prevent Death from claiming the rest?

Chosen answer: No. It only stops death from going after its current target, and moves onto the next one.

New this month Answer: When all of the others are dead then death goes to claim the one that was skipped.

Question: When there in airport there's a Indian or Buddhist guy handing out brochures. He tries to give one to Alex and Alex looks at him weird. Why? And what does the brochure say?

Den Mitchell

Chosen answer: He says that the world is ending which sounds kind of strange to Alex. The brochure was for Hare Krishna so he may have also found the brochure to be kind of strange as well.

Question: The airport scene where Alex is talking to the ticket attendant she says something about his arrival being the same as his birthday? Please explain?

Den Mitchell

Chosen answer: Alex's birthday is 9-25-82. The arrival time is 9:25.

Question: What is the clue to Val Lewton's death?

M0vi3

Chosen answer: Possibly the burning leaves that get blown in the wind while Alex is on his way there.

Question: When the teacher is pouring her Vodka, she freaks out all of a sudden when she looks inside her cup. Why does she do this?

Chosen answer: The cup has the high school's crest on the side of it - she is freaked out because, as she explains in the previous scene, everything is reminding her of the school and thus of the crash in which she should have died.

Mistakes

At the memorial service the principal says that it's been 39 days since 39 loved ones had died. But there were 40 students on the plane and 4 chaperones, making the total 44. Now 7 people got off the plane which means 37 people related to that memorial service actually died, not 39. Two pilots would make up the numbers, but there would be flight crew too, which still leaves the numbers off.

Trivia

The filmmakers originally had an ending in which Alex grabs the cable that lies on Clear's car, Alex catches fire and dies. Then Clear gets her baby and Carter survives. The test audience didn't like this, so the filmmakers shot another ending in which Alex is decapitated by a crashing police helicopter. But again, the test audience didn't like the fact that Alex dies, so they shot the finish with the billboard, which took 6 days to film and cost nearly $2,000,000.
