Horrorfest 2019 Presents: Final Exam (1981, Jimmy Huston)


Final Exam is at times goofy, silly, and very gory. The characters are thinly developed even for a slasher movie and the killer doesn’t have a motive. Yet I still thought Final Exam was ok-not bad, not exactly good, just ok. The football coach by the way is the best character in this movie and since it was made at the start of the slasher craze you really cannot fault the characters for their decisions. Well, at least some of them.

Plus the last act is intense and the final girl is likable. I also was ok with the killer simply being some insane person on the loose. This film had to been one of the inspirations for Urban Legend. Unfortunately for Final Exam it suffered from being compared to previous slasher films. I viewed this on Tubi TV and I didn’t hate it so give it a chance.
