Final Terror (1985)




Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.

Movie Info

This mediocre slasher film from director Andrew Davis is worth watching more for its cast than for its cliched story. The film is set in the usual isolated forest, where a ratty-looking killer (who seems to be covered with Spanish moss) makes survival difficult for some foul-tempered campers. Among the doomed are future luminaries Rachel Ward, Daryl Hannah, and Adrian Zmed. The leaders, played by Joe Pantoliano and Mark Metcalf, are some of the most irritating characters in any 1980s slasher … More

The Final Terror isn't the slasher classic that Halloween and Friday the 13th are.

[Blu-ray Review] "The Final Terror" has been entirely unavailable in the U.S. since the days of VHS, but it fully earns the right to be rediscovered on Scream Factory's outstanding Blu-ray release.

I can name at least four people who'd rather this flick be stricken from their resumes.

Audience Reviews for Final Terror


The Bad things about this movie is that it is supposed to be a slasher BUT there aren't enough deaths which was a big let down for me and the few death scene are not explicit nor gory though It has a couple of suspenseful moments.
"The Final Terror" is a pretty lame slasher. Nothing memorable about it. Very forgettable.

Final Terror follows the story of a group of rangers into the woods for whats suppose to be a camping trip and work program that ends with them taken a river ride but all doesnt go as planned when the bus driver snaps and leaves early the head ranger and his girlfriend go missing and then dead bodies start turning up the surviors are left to band together and catch or kill whoever is responseable. What i thought was a really good 80's flick in the same vein as the Burning or early Friday the 13th movies low body count is the only thing that hurts this movie but still fun to watch

A really bad killer in the woods flick that didn't even scare me as a kid and I was afraid of virtually everything. Don't get me wrong, if this was playing in the midnight hour or so then it would be semi-casual but on it's own this is slightly below average for the genre. Go to Friday the 13th or Sleepaway Camp instead.
