Ratings Key

= Excellent. The best the genre has to offer.
1/2 = Very Good. Perhaps not "perfect," but undoubtedly a must-see.
★★★ = Good. Accomplishes what it sets out to do and does it well.
★★1/2 = Fair. Clearly flawed and nothing spectacular, but competently made. OK entertainment.
★★ = Mediocre. Either highly uneven or by-the-numbers and uninspired.
1/2 = Bad. Very little to recommend.
= Very Bad. An absolute chore to sit through.
NO STARS! = Abysmal. Unwatchable dreck that isn't even bad-movie amusing.
SBIG = So Bad It's Good. Technically awful movies with massive entertainment value.

Final Exam (1981)

Directed by:
Jimmy Huston

Is this an exposé on how juvenile mentality, hazing insensitivity and substance abuse plague college campuses around the country? Actually, no it’s not. It’s just a terrible slasher film about bunch of worthless, blabbermouth college kids sitting around and behaving brain dead for about an hour before the director shows us some mercy by throwing a psychotic killer into the mix. Only the most dedicated of slasher fans will have the patience to endure this notoriously boring exercise in repeat false alarms, college hijinks, endless talk that amounts to nothing and dull, gore-free murders from a motiveless and identity-free killer.

Score: 2 out of 10
