Final Destination 3

Corrected entry: In the scene where Ashley and Ashlyn are at the tanning salon, it is pouring outside, yet they both are bone dry, hair and all. I don't see either of them with an umbrella. Ashlyn used a notebook to cover their heads when they were talking to Wendy at school.

Correction: What if they used their jackets to do the same thing? Added to that, we don't know exactly where they parked, so they could've parked right in front of the building, hence not needing to walk very far.

Corrected entry: We know that Wendy intervenes to save Ian from his death, then death moves on to Erin and kills her. Julie is next but Ian dies before her. The problem is Ian should not die. As seen in Final Destination 2 (when Eugene tries to shoot himself), you cannot die if you aren't next on Death's list.

Correction: Julie is next to die, yes, but she is saved by the other guy. The guy then almost gets himself killed, but is saved by Wendy. Wendy is supposed to die from the cherry picker but she is saved by Ian. Her picture with she wearing the McKinley shirt points to she being killed by the cherry picker. With Ian standing below the cherry picker, he saved Wendy from her supposed death. So death loop back to the first person that was intervened, Ian.

Corrected entry: During Wendy's 'vision', Frankie's camcorder caused the incident, yet, afterwards, Frankie gets off.


Correction: I found this in Final Destination wikia so the credits belongs to the respective owner. Since Frankie is pulled off the coaster, many viewers are confused as to how the crash still took place, as Frankie dropping the camera seemed to trigger off the event. This is incorrect; the actual cause of the accident was the hydraulics rupturing after Lewis' harness is forced down (this took place before the premonition, so it still counts in "real life") the camera only causes the hydraulics to be damaged further, causing the ride to crash. While Kevin, Lewis and Ian are fighting after Wendy has her premonition, the hydraulics are still rupturing, so by the time the ride restarts, there was no need for Frankie's camera - the hydraulics were damaged enough by then.

Corrected entry: Wendy should have died when the fireworks nearly hit her, someone else is supposed to intervene, no one in the Final Destination series saved themselves from death's attack, unless they saw it.

Correction: Wendy was never meant to be hit by the fireworks, the Cherry picker was supposed to kill her, but killed Ian instead. Ian died because he was (unknowingly) intervening with Wendy's death just by standing in their way. Also the reason Wendy thought Ian was going to cause her death was because she mistook the clue in the photograph (her wearing a shirt with 'McKinley' on it) as a sign that Ian would be the cause of her death. The 'McKinley' clue was actually referring to the Cherry picker.

Corrected entry: After the train crash Wendy looks back at all the people that died, look at the left-middle portion of the screen you can see a man breathing and move his lip as if he was talking.


Correction: He could very well have been trying to moan, since he was obviously not dead, just like Wendy.


Corrected entry: At the tricentennial, Wendy, Kevin and Julie are right in front of Julie's friend that gets speared resulting in them being spattered with blood; but when they are talking about Ian causing Wendy's death, they have no blood on them or their clothes.


Correction: Kevin had already left to check on the horse, so only Wendy and Julie were splattered with blood. Throughout the scene, the blood can clearly be seen on both their clothes and their faces.


Corrected entry: At the Tricentennial, when Julie is being dragged toward the farm equipment by the horse. After Kevin cuts the rope with the sword, the next shot shows Julie sitting up with the rope around her neck, but the severed end is going the opposite way of the way she was dragged.

Correction: The end facing the dangerous equipment was severed. The other end (which was tethered to the stake that the horse pulled out) was going in the opposite direction. It was basically a knot at her throat, and the two ends go in opposite directions.


Corrected entry: When Wendy is standing in front of the memorial a gust blows and the candle goes out. However in the previous two movies when there is a gust of wind the character dies within the next 5 minutes because the gust means Death is there. Wendy hasn't died almost an hour into the movie which doesn't follow the rules of the first two.


Correction: Or, it could have simply been the wind. Just because Death is around doesn't mean that nature stops working.


Corrected entry: When we see the ride we can tell that it has a very long line and in the several shots of the roller-coaster the train is never full. As a ride operator it is a rule that you only dispatch a full train.


Correction: Just because it's a rule doesn't mean that everybody follows it. There's also the rule of no cameras but at least two people break that. There's also the possibility that there were parties in the line that all wanted to go together and not be split up.


Corrected entry: When Wendy snaps the photo of her sister as the guy is waving his hand in front of the camera she has already started the vision. But when she snaps back into reality and she has the camera in her hand, he is waving his hand as she is holding it but she never snaps the picture. Yet later that picture is among all the other picture clues.

Correction: The vision could well have triggered right after taking the photo.


Corrected entry: Why does Wendy have a camera for yearbook in the first place when yearbooks came out right after the accident? There wouldn't be enough time to get those pics into the yearbook.


Correction: At times, there are pictures for yearbook that go into the next year. For prom or spring events for example. Despite them being the graduating class, the pictures could into next year's book or as a summer insert to be placed inside the yearbook.

Corrected entry: During the tanning bed scene, the machine turns from 245 to 250 VAC twice.

Jack Kaltenbach

Correction: No it doesn't. It hits 250 VAC, then later, it shows it hitting 350 VAC.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Wendy and Kevin are at Jason's grave site, there should be freshly turned soil due to his recent burial.

Correction: When a relative of mine died straight after the funeral the ground was put down to grass.

Corrected entry: At the beginning of Wendy's vision, when the rollercoaster starts to leave, the camera goes on Erin and Ian. Erin is in the left seat, and Ian is in the right seat next to her. As the ride goes on, the seating remains the same. But in the scene when they both fall, Erin is in the right seat and Ian is in the left seat. (00:13:55 - 00:18:15)

Correction: Yes we see Erin on the right and Ian on the left when they fall but this is not a mistake. The roller-coaster is upside down and the camera shows them through Wendy's point of view, that's why it looks like they've switched seats, but that's not the case, they are in the correct seats.

Corrected entry: In the final scene when Wendy is starting to have another premonition she is on train 081. She looks out the window and sees a reflection of the train in the mirror that reads 180, the flight number from FD1. (01:46:05)


Correction: This isn't trivia at all, but quite an important aspect of the FD movies. Wendy points out the appearance of "180" in one of her pictures early on in the film, and the train scene is set up in such a way that it's almost impossible to miss the Flight 180 reference.

Corrected entry: When the Hice beer truck pulls out and passes Kevin's truck the liftgate is straight up at a 90 degree angle, but when it backs up to the gate is tilted down like 10-15 degrees. These gates are not operated from inside the cab. (00:46:10 - 00:46:55)


Correction: This movie depicts "death" manipulating objects to accomplish it's plan. "Death" could have lowered the gate from the outside without the driver noticing.

Corrected entry: When playing "Choose your Fate" and pick Wendy to take another look, Wendy and Kevin just walk straight into the locker room. Lewis says, "What the F*** are you doing here?" then the weights fall. The swords that cut the wire holding the weights are still upright when they should have fallen to cut the wire.


Correction: The picture only gives clues as to how the characters are going to die. Although the swords were in the picture, the actual clue was the weight Lewis smashed that looked like it was going onto his head. As this is what happens on Choose Your Fate, there is no mistake.

Corrected entry: When Julie is getting dragged around by the rope by horse it jumps over a spike thing.Well, if it jumps over the spike thing how can the rope suddenly go under it?


Correction: I've just rewatched that scene, and the rope does not go under the wheeled spike thing. The rope goes over and rests on the axle.

Corrected entry: In an alternate ending of the train scene, a newspaper clipping blows past which reads that Kim and Burke from FD2 were killed in a woodchipper, in that order. This presents two plot holes: 1) Burke was meant to die before Kim; 2) Despite the incorrectness of the order, Kim's death and revival in FD2 erased Death's list (because of "new life"), so she and Burke should have become unmarked anyway.

Correction: Just because Death's list got erased doesn't mean that they are going to live forever! They still need to be put back on the list *somewhere*. It just so happened that that *somewhere* was in a woodchipper incident.

Corrected entry: There is no clue on Wendy's photo that indicates she will be attacked by fireworks. Also, nobody actually intervenes to save her: she saves herself as she throws herself to the floor. Death should return back to Wendy before skipping to Ian.

Correction: I have seen the movie several times and have no idea what scene you are talking about. There never was any photo of Wendy being killed by fireworks. In the photos she sees the one of Kevin with a flash going off in his face, HE suggests that it could mean he is killed by fireworks at the tricentenial celebration. It isn't until she saves Kevin from the fire of the gas leak and sees Ian walking toward them that she realizes that Ian casues her death. His last name is McKinley and her shirt in the photo says McKinley High School.

Correction: Wendy wasn't supposed to die from the fireworks. The fireworks were supposed to damage the cherry picker, which is what was meant to kill her. Ian unknowingly intervened by not letting her pass and he died instead. The clue in her picture, which was McKinley on her shirt, was reflected on the banner hanging from the cherry picker.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Ashley says that they've got CDs in the tanning salon you can see Ashlyn keeping a cream tube on the table with her right hand. In the next shot you see her continuing the same action with the left hand.

Kevin Fischer: What's wrong?
Wendy Christensen: It's nothing. It's just that I'm going to be worrying about you every second while you're gone.
Kevin Fischer: Why would you worry about me? We don't even like each other, remember?

Trivia: The opening sequence is a foreshadow to a few of the deaths in the movie. The pinball-like game shows a picture of a woman with nails in her face (Erin), twin "electric sisters" (Ashley & Ashlyn), and daggers/swords (Lewis).
