The Final Destination is a psychological horror film that involves cheating death and the consequences of cheating. Hard working student Nick O'Bannon (Bobby Campo) takes a break from his studies to watch the car race. While there he suddenly has a vision of a terrible car crash is going to happen. He convinces eight other people to quickly leave.
As they are leaving a horrific crash happens, killing people. This sets off a chain of events that will eventually kill all of them. Nadia Monroy (Stephanie Honore) is crushed by one of the tires from the car crash even before they can leave the stadium.
Carter Daniels (Justin Welborn)is a racist. He is trying to burn a cross on George Lanter's (Mykelti Williamson) lawn who was also one of the survivors, when his truck starts to roll. He ends up getting dragged and blown up.
The next to die is Samantha Lane (Krista Allen). She is killed when a rock obliterates her eye while sitting in a salon. Nick and the others hear about the deaths and he tries to convince the remaining ones that they need to stick together. Andy Kewzer (Andrew Fiscella) is slammed into a fence by a tank filled with carbon dioxide. Lori Milligan (Shantel VanSanten) and George successfully save Janet Cunningham(Haley Webb) from a car wash. Nick is unsuccessful in saving Hunt Wynorski (Nick Zano). The drain to the swimming pool kills him.
Nick finds out that there was another survivor, Jonathan Graves. He is mangled by a bathtub. George is hit by an ambulance on the way to the hospital. Nick has another vision, but realizes that he is still in the hospital. Janet and Lori are still alive.
After getting out of the hospital, the three of them are at a cafe when a semi truck comes barreling through the window. Janet is ran over, Lori is decapitated, and Nick is thrown with such force that it snaps his spine.
