Entertainment: The highest-grossing 4th entry in a jaded horror franchise somehow survives on streaming

Body Horror Fans Should Check Out The Short-Lived Swamp Thing Series

  Body Horror Fans Should Check Out The Short-Lived Swamp Thing Series The 2019 Swamp Thing TV series is still available to stream, and fans of more grotesque horror should give it a watch.Thanks to deals with other streaming services and the CW, however, fans all over the world have now been able to watch Swamp Thing. The CW brought edited versions of the episodes to the screen after the cancelation, and made the series available on their streaming app as well. The series draws inspiration from different DC comic book runs, but its short first season is really a love letter to horror — specifically, body horror.

From The CW’s ever-engaging fantasy series Supernatural to Seth MacFarlane’s comedic interpretation in Family Guy, the ominous mystique of Death has been included in various forms of entertainment media. But, perhaps the most memorable portrayal of Death as a fictional character has occurred during the long-standing horror franchise in Final Destination. And while some of the earlier installments in the franchise were considered authentic and pulse-pounding, others were unmercifully panned by critics and audiences alike — which was precisely the case with 2009’s The Final Destination.

10 Horror Movies That Changed The Game

  10 Horror Movies That Changed The Game A 'Steps' superfan has had his 'dream come true' after his boyfriend proposed on stage at the band's final concert. Adam Higginson, 31, and Ste Horton, 34, started dating in May this year, after matching on Tinder. After dating for a couple of months, Adam decided the perfect time to propose would be at the Steps concert at Birmingham Pride. It was the group's final performance for the foreseeable future, as the band have decided to take a break to spend time with their loved ones. The couple have both been huge fans of the group since they released their first debut single '5, 6, 7, 8' in 1997. When Adam was drunk, he decided to message all five members of the band, and member Faye Tozer, 46, replied saying she could make it happen. Adam said: "Ste always said he would love to get proposed to at a Steps concert but he thought it could never happen. "We were out with friends on a night out and Ste's best friend asked me if I was going to propose to him, but I said he wanted it at a Steps concert so it was never going to happen. "She then said how we was both going to Birmingham Pride and Steps were going to be there, and I was like oh my god. "I was drunk and started messaging every member of Steps and then I was at the bar and it said that Faye Tozer had sent me a message. "I opened it and she had replied to my message saying send me your email address and she then put me in touch with her management team.

Directed by David R. Ellis, the fourth installment in the horror series, much like its trio of predecessors, centers around a group of people attempting to escape the ruthless wrath of Death after evading being killed during a race-car crash. And despite its similarities with prior installments, The Final Destination is presented in a 3D format and sought to add an element of modernity.

At the box office, The Final Destination reigned supreme, as it grossed $186 million worldwide — effectively making it the highest-grossing film in the horror catalog. However, despite its audacious attempt to revitalize a dying franchise, the supernatural vehicle was unapologetically panned by stone-faced critics, with its 35 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes echoing critics’ distaste. On the other hand, viewers were evidently more pleased by the horror project, which is showcased in the film’s 68 percent audience score.

As it turns out, thrill-seeking subscribers on Netflix decided to steer away from the critics’ consensus and spent their weekend soaking up the movie’s eerie content. As per FlixPatrol, The Final Destination jumped double-digit places on the streaming platform and cracked into Netflix’s Top 50 — and it certainly looks as though it will keep trending upwards.
