I ended up being more than underwhelmed by Jimmy Huston's 1981 slasher Final Exam, which suffers from an almost total lack of atmosphere, violence & logic as well as a killer that might very well be THE most boring knife-wielding psycho stalker ever.

While Shout! Factory has once again done an impressive job with the restoration and special features, "Final Exam" is just another drop in the bucket of cheap and forgettable slasher flicks.

If Final Exam fell into any other genre, Huston's character work would be insultingly broad and inadequate, but it's rare to see a horror film devote so much time to humanizing the meatsacks.

Quite possibly the dullest slasher movie ever made.

[Blu-ray Review] The narrative is by no means free and clear of clichés, but it becomes exceedingly obvious all the same that an attempt was made to separate it from the glut of similar body-count fare inundating the marketplace at the time.
