This lesson can't be learned in the classroom.
A group of high school outcasts get revenge on the students that torment them.
It took me three fucking days to finish this turd. Three days I will never, ever get back.
They did a good job of showing that neither side was righteous in their actions, but ultimately it just seemed like they all got out too easy. No one really learned anything here with the exception of the bookended girl. It was an enjoyable enough film though, but I really wished they all would have been tortured, not just a select few.
Fifth film in my Horrorfest 4 marathon, a lot better than the last two but still has some strong weaknesses. It's a basic plot, nerds are sick of being an outcast and bullied so they capture some upperclassmen/jocks and torture them to teach a lesson. Where it falls short for me is the first half the "bad guys" feel like they are just playing pretend or dress up, they are just not believable. Secondly it's just to preachy concerning why they are torturing their captives. Sub par acting but at times is still enjoyable once you accept the quality of the movie.
While "The Final" is not poorly made, the low-budget horror flick is tedious. Shifting from near-camp to dark revenge drama, the tonally indecisive film lacks forward motion after its chief conflict is established; and, while there could have been some cathartic, twisted fun to be had at the expense of the film's antagonists, this mish-mash of Miike and the "Saw" franchise spends too much time mired in unfortunate self-seriousness.
"One night. One final night."
Featuring some very questionable acting from the oldest high school students I've ever seen and some of the most outlandish continuity errors and plot holes, but somehow I really really enjoyed this. I do not know why.
On April 20th 1999, two sacks of shit shot up Columbine High School in an act of violence that, no matter how many school shootings happen in this increasingly godforsaken country, still carries a weight and cultural importance all its own.
After the attacks, a portrait began to form of the cunts who pulled the trigger. That they were weirdos, outcasts, loners striking back at the popular kids who had bullied them. This was started as a way to fan flames against video games and heavy metal music, a dose of good old "do you know what your kids are doing" paranoia that crops up time and time again every time art does anything interesting or new. But over the…
As much as I heavily despise and loathe a lot of the modern horror films of the last 15 to 18 years,this is one of the handful that is the exception,for it's a teen vengeance fueld tale about a group of misfit oucast high school teens who overtake the costume party of their upper class preppy fellow teens that frequent bully them and push the punishment button on them,as they either kill them(via stabbing) or mutilate them via slicing off a few of their fingers or disfiguring them with acid drenched clay. A few of the captured teens do escape to get outside help to overthrow the bad revenge minded teens,only that the damage that's been laid upon the surviving victims has already been done. Director Joey Stewart does a splendid job at directing this film as it delivers a handful of surprises and decent performances. It is one modern horror film that is worth the effort of checking out.
Look for a review on Cinefessions.com during October.
An uneven movie with flashes of genuine quality especially and most surprisingly when the ostensible 'bad guys' are monologuing. That almost never happens. Plot is sadly relevant as a group of high schoolers seek torturous revenge on those classmates who have bullied them throughout their lives. Filmmakers do too good a job of portraying the bullies as sociopathic shitheels making it hard to feel any kind of real sympathy for their plight. Any one with half conscience will though as the torture they endure is clearly not the proper response to the physical and mental anguish they inflicted on their attackers. The biggest failing of the film is a lack of a nuance and the fact that it doesn't really try to offer an alternative. If they had, this could've been pretty good.
A half hour into this garbage and I am ready to call it quits (but I shouldnt, because it's part of my Only Horror October).
The characters are one-dimensional, the bullies look like college seniors, not high school seniors. Even when they are kidnapped, they still joke and don't think anything of suddenly passing out en masse and waking up chained to the ground. They are so deplorable and dehumanized immediately, rife with rancid cliches, that who the fuck cares what happens to them.
But the bullied are worse.
The bullied are totally shut off, and they don't turn back on and show any personality when they are among each other or themselves. They spend all their time watching shitty…
The Final starred
Marc Donato(from Pay It Forward), Jascha Washington(from Big Momma's House), Whitney Joy(from Mistresses), Justin Arnold(from Love & Air Sex), Lindsay Seidel(from Soul Eater), Spirit Camp), Laura Ashley Smith(from In Time), Eric Isenhower(from Parks & Rec) & Travis Tedford(from Little Rascals).
it was a pretty nice little horror flick.
just check it out on the Chiller Network(probley the best channel showing horror films).
It's about these outcast who decides to get revenge on the bullies who torment them, they pretty much made the outcast the villians to the bullies.
This film shows that bullying really needs to stop, cause you could also make good kids into very bad kids.
The actors, most of who i ever heard of, expect for Travis…
It was late and I wanted to watch shitty horror. This is what I found via the Netflix. A bunch of teens are bullied so they watch a bunch of horror films you never get to see and decide to kill their peers on halloween. A premise like that could be fun. This just isnt. Barely any gore, terrible writing...It's basically a Hot Topic wet dream made by someone who loves dumb horror and Slipknot.
college kids kill other kids. torture porn really
Bad. Not good-bad either, just bad. I'm trying to think of what else to say, but there's nothing. It's bad. Nothing to see here. Move along.
Note to directors: if you make the bullies that deplorable, then the audience has literally no reason to care if they live or die.
Horror movies are by far my favorite, so I've decided to make a list with all of them I remember…
