"Final Exam" was made at the peak of the early 80's slasher period and I'm not surprised that this one been forgotten. The intro is truly typical stuff with a teen couple making out in a car only to be killed (but in a crap off screen murder). During the next 50 minutes! or so you'll be wondering if you're actually watching a slasher as nothing happens, that is apart from some ridiculous teen pranks, annoying characters and bland goings on. There's no suspense during this period and the killer is absent for what seems like an eternity before the deaths begin. From then on the deaths do come fairly thick and fast but sadly they are mostly lackluster murders with not much blood and little tension is created. The ending and the killers identity is also a let down and will probably leave you scratching your head, but you probably would have fallen asleep before then anyway. I'm a massive slasher fan but this one is disappointing. 2.5 Stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars meh... 2 Aug 2014

I really wanted to love this film as a fan of 80s horror but it just didn't do it for me. Boring at times, limited story lines and not enough mindless 80s slashing. Its ok, just ok...so if you buy it cheap then its worth a watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Final Exam 29 Dec 2011
By FinlayB
Format:DVD
After looking at the reviews , I thought it wouldn't be any good but after watching it I loved it! It had good ,creepy music to go with the chase scenes and a lot of jumpy scenes. I thought it was well made and should be considered for any horror film fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unexpectedly charming, slasher obscurity. 4 Feb 2012
Format:DVD
Another contribution to the countless slasher films made during the 1980's, Final Exam was in my opinion a fairly decent slasher although it was bloodless, I still thought it was entertaining. It's final exam week at Lanier College and the campus is rocked by a school shooting. Of course, it's all an elaborate prank - which would not go over well today - by the Gamma fraternity and the sheriff is none too happy about being called out to investigate. As the day goes on, the escalating pranks and hazings distract everyone from the presence of a hulking, knife-wielding killer intent on thinning out the student body, there wasn't that much of a plot which is typical of most 80's slasher films. MPM (who also brought us Savage Streets and distributed City of the Living Dead and several other pieces of brilliant and gory schlock) created the film's advertising campaign first so that the film's script could be tailored to their exploitation needs. Writer/director Jimmy Houston and producer Myron Meisel (film critic for FOCUS! magazine) were instructed by MPM's money-man John Chambliss that the script could contain anything they wanted so long as every scene was tailored after scenes that had appeared in at least two successful examples of the slasher genre. Paradoxically, MPM wanted to reach a much wider audience with their slasher film, including younger teens, so that meant to throw out much of the expected explicit gore and nudity (a bit of nudity was included strictly to receive the required R-rating, and a more lingering take was included in the trailer as a commercial hook). Not as violent as most slasher films from the 80's, Final Exam still delivers the goods with scares and suspense. The most interesting aspect to the film is how the killer's motives are never explained. Read more ›
