Any thoughts on "FINAL EXAM"?

  1. The best part of Final Exam is the obviously gay male who has a super crush on the lead actress.....I think he wanted her wardrobe.

    I REALLY liked his dialogue: "I can't help it; I'm brilliant!"

    The Prey was one of the first movies that made me laugh because of the unintentional humor. Fell in love with that film right away. I wish AB could track down the unrated print and release this cheesy gem on DVD.
    Final Exam however never "clicked" with me. I was bored to tears on my first viewing. I would give this another chance though, if it ever made it to DVD .... which we all know won't ever happen ... :D

    Radish is cool, and did have a "way" about him. I was more curious about Wildman...he liked to get awful close to that poor pledge.

    A fine slasher of the era. I have 2 videos copies and the soundtrack LP and movie posters. Very fun little film. Raddish is pretty fun and has a Corpse Grinders poster on the wall. Kind of wished he would have lived in the film. He could have been the hero of the film.
    Do like this film alot. Should have been on DVD years ago. Maybe some dink little DVD company who puts 10 or 50 PD titles on one set will release it.

    I'm with Billy on this one.Final Exam is shit.When we were teens this was the throw in VHS when we made trades.Is there cut and uncut versions of it?Maybe I'm missing something but I doubt it.Give me The Prey any day.

    Final Exam is one of those flicks I've always wanted to see but part of me assumes it's total crap. Sort of like Splatter University, which I saw for the first time recently. I'd been looking forward to it and then, wow, what a disappointment.

    Although Final Exam can't possibly be as bad as Splatter U.... can it?

    I would watch Splatter U 50 times before watching Final Exam again.

    Final Exam is a million times better than Splatter University.

    A million times zero is still zero.:lol:
    At least Splatter U was laughable.Final Exam was deathly boring with zero blood and gore.I'd rather watch paint dry.I might even prefer soccer to watching that poop.

    My public library surprisingly has Final Exam on VHS. It is on the old Embassy label.

    I have the paperback book of FINAL EXAM. If you think the movie has slow parts...the book REALLY drags. However, the killer's identity is never given. You don't even get inside the killer's head like novelization of "Halloween".
    Now about the artwork - the re-issued VHS and one-sheet poster have the "Friday the 13th"-inspired silloutte holding the knife. However, the soundtrack vinyl and my newspaper clippings from 1981 have a bloody knife sticking out of a Psychology book. I like that art much better.
