Escarpeta's no stranger to New Line horror movies, having starred in the newest film of the Friday the 13th franchise. "Friday the 13th was a very different horror movie. They're both franchises. Friday the 13th is iconic. Everybody knows it and it's been around forever. Final Destination is kind of like the new age of horror movies for the younger generations like my little cousins who are in high school. They know Final Destination because that's what they go and see."
