Movie Info

A suicidal high school outcast plots with his misfit friends to seek vengeance against the popular kids who revel in making their lives a living hell. Taking his cue from the Han Dynasty and a steady diet of sadistic horror films, Dane plans a party his tormentors will never forget. When the targeted teen inherits a secluded lake house from his late uncle, he recruits fellow rejects Jack, Ravi, Andy, and Emily in throwing a party that no bully will walk away from unscarred. ~ Jason Buchanan,

Is the world ready for a Columbine-inspired horror? Not one as crass as this, that's for sure.

You've probably had bloodier encounters with a vegetable peeler.

The deranged fantasy of some demented social outcast.

Feels only half-baked, never delivering on its promise and merely wallowing in the grisliness.

An above-average horror flick, if it wasn't so Columbine. Paul Chambers, CNN.

Wants to be "Saw meets Heathers," I suspect. It doesn't succeed.

A sick exercise in the darkness of humanity and what violence can bring us to brink of...

The acting is pretty good and the costumes are great, but the movie is routine and its message dated.

Audience Reviews for The Final

A decent idea but not done to it's full potential. A cross between Heathers with Hostel, without being as gory. Good message though, you start off cheering for one side but then feel sorry for those held captive. Not bad for a low budget horror.

2 1/2 star movie, with an extra half star for the message. ....I hate bullies and really enjoyed watching them get theirs. I hope the bullies out there will think twice before being mean to outcasts. They are outcasts because thats what the kids in school choose them to be. This isn't the best movie, but not the worst either. It had it's moments.

I love doing reviews on movies because some of them are so under rated and people turn away from these types of movies because of it. Main reason I am here on RT, I see a lot of bad reviews, so I would at least like to say, give this a chance if you can stomach a low budget movie. The story line is typical high school payback against bullies, but if you were one like many to be picked on, you will love this movie. Let The Torture Begin!!

Genius. I loved this film. This is the horror version of "Revenge Of The Nerds" where they actually torture people.
