Well, I like it for its atmosphere. And there are some effective scenes where the kills should be. Plus it's a classic from the golden age with Rachel Ward, Adrian Zmed and Daryl Hannah. Depends where you draw the line in your collection.

It sounds like it's at least worth a watch. Sometimes I'm a sucker for atmospheric movies so I might even like it. I think I'll check it out on YouTube like Thing suggested.

I liked EXPOSED.

I was surprised at how much I liked THE FINAL TERROR. It's a bit like "Deliverance" and "Just Before Dawn" combined. Good cast, too.

I'm surprised by the lukewarm reaction to THE FINAL TERROR, it's one of the few movies from the 80s that feels like it should have been from the 70s (in the good way). The end sequence always worked for me.

The end sequence is the best part but really its pretty bad. Just Before Dawn is a similar film and MUCH better and it feels like a 70's film in a great way, its like a Deliverance slasher. Final Terror is too amateurish for its own good (however I would still be curious to see it with a good transfer because it was terrible quality when I saw it).

FINAL TERROR is the best Shout announcement ever. I'm a little bummed that there's no original negative to work from but they did say there's a nice print available. Trouble is, some of these release prints may have been cut up. Nevertheless, we're finally going to be able to see this film a few steps up in quality than piss-poor VHS and bootlegs. Can't wait to see what extras they come up with.

Hmm I have not re-read the release but I assumed that there was no original negative for the extended cut.. pretty bad if there isnt one period.

All the more reason we need this blu-ray release. It's digital film preservation.

Yeah, the ending is great. And even in the horrible vhs bootleg that I saw, there was still a really strong atmosphere that came through (more so than Just Before Dawn, IMO). But I really don't remember much at all about the first 75% of the film. I'm interested in the release, though. I've passed on more than a few of the recent Scream Factory releases, but I think I'll be buying this one. Especially if they add a few nice supplements.
