If you’re a fan of horror movies, you may have come across the infamous scene in the movie “The Shining” where Jack Nicholson’s character, Jack Torrance, is locked in a bathroom and goes insane. However, this article is not about that scene. Instead, it’s about another bathroom scene that has left moviegoers scratching their heads – the one involving Ray in the 2000 horror film “Final Destination.”
For those who haven’t seen the movie, “Final Destination” follows a group of high school students who cheat death after one of them has a premonition of a plane exploding mid-air. As they try to avoid their fates and outrun death itself, they soon realize that they can’t escape their destiny.
Now let’s get back to Ray and the bathroom scene. In this particular sequence, Ray (played by actor Shawn Wayans) is in his apartment’s bathroom when he accidentally drops his razor blade down the sink drain.
After unsuccessfully trying to retrieve it with his hands, he decides to unscrew the drain cover and stick his hand inside. That’s when things take a turn for the worse.
As Ray tries to grab his blade, he accidentally knocks over an open bottle of aftershave into the sink basin. The aftershave ignites from contact with a nearby lighter and sets off a chain reaction that causes an explosion. The blast sends Ray flying backward and shatters his bathroom mirror into countless pieces.
So what happened to Ray after that? Did he survive?
Did he die? The answer is not entirely clear.
At first glance, it seems like Ray died in the explosion as we see him flung backwards amidst shattered glass and flames. However, later on in the movie, we see him alive and well at a memorial service for one of his deceased friends from Flight 180 (the plane that exploded earlier on). This has led many viewers to wonder if Ray really did escape death’s grip or if it was all just a hallucination.
One theory suggests that Ray did indeed die in the bathroom explosion and that everything we see after that is merely a projection of his own mind. Another theory posits that Ray survived the explosion but was later killed in an off-screen accident.
Regardless of whether Ray survived or not, the bathroom scene in “Final Destination” remains one of the most memorable and shocking moments in horror movie history. It serves as a testament to the power of suspense, surprise, and visual storytelling.
In conclusion, the fate of Ray in the bathroom scene remains shrouded in mystery. While some believe he survived, others think he met a grim end. Regardless of what actually happened, one thing is for sure – this scene will continue to haunt viewers for years to come.
