Final Destination is an American horror franchise where each film's protagonist has a premonition of a terrible accident that would kill numerous people, including the protagonist themself. The protagonist and several other people then escape from the scene of the accident, before it happens just like in the protagonist's vision. The group of people then start dying in a series of bizarre accidents. Death itself is the main villain/antagonist of each film.
