The only thing that I found inexcusable is the DVD transfer quality.

This is regarding the Scream Factory release from July 2014, not the sorry excuse for releases that came out before. This is a nifty little film, that's part backwoods urban legend slasher and part wilderness survival. The beautiful redwood forest and assured direction provide a really tense, creepy atmosphere that is missing from most of the Friday the 13th knockoffs. This isn't sheer cinematic brilliance, by any means, but you could do worse on a Saturday night where you feel like getting spooked. The acting is also top notch by a cast of soon-to-be-veterans. I would have liked it to be about a half hour longer with 2 or 3 more deaths, but it's fine the way it is. Definitely worth a first or second look, as Scream Factory has worked wonders on a film where the original prints have vanished.

As a kid I remember seeing this in about every video store in the horror section alonside other 'classics' like Slaughter High,Scarecrows,The original The Hills have eyes and of course, Don't Go In The Woods. If you are reading this review then you know what I am talking about and the old time video stores with that musty smell and and fun it was on the weekends to get some horror movies. To me, as long as it was set in the woods or had an old house/barn or even a scary field then that is all I needed to know to make my choice.

The Final Terror has all the elements of a good horror movie. I don't even mind if this formula has been done before. It has a group of campers going into a very dark forest with a crazed bus driver. They pass by a mental institution on the way that only gives it more of an edge with your mind wondering of the possiblities of someone maybe getting out of the asylum and into the woods. You have a campfire tale that talks of a crazy person roaming the woods that enforces the idea even more. Of course you have the character that gets a prank pulled on him and he stays in the woods all night howling like a wolf(you have to see this prank...a highlight of the film) that they later look for and that splits up the group for when the inevitable happens.....the leaders are the first to go leaving the others to fend for themselves.

Then you have some great moments of tension including many false scares where the music builds up only to have someone they know tap them on the shoulder or something. Some of the best moments are when two of the guys go into a shack in the woods where they find out their food/raft and equipment has been hidden at and that the bus driver is the one that lives there.

I remember seeing this movie in the late 80's when it was taped off of HBO. I've always been a fan of this film, because I think it has alot to offer, but if your talking in terms of DVD status, it dosen't rate so high. Im glad to see this was put out on DVD for others to check out, but its sad it got such bad treatment. The video quality is probably worse then the VHS version. It looks like to me they took the best copy on tape, and converted it to DVD. Its definitly not "remastered". It would have been nice to see it in its widescreen format with cleaned up audio and sound, but not so with this one. In fact, because this movie didnt exactly burn up the charts, you probably will never see a special edition or any other version then the one currently out because there just isnt enough interest in this film. The DVD also lacks any features, commentary, ect. Also no artwork insert either, but mine did come with $50 in coupons!

Let me just start by saying that I DO like the film(it is what it is)-but this DVD release is crap!Hmmm..let's see..It's basically worse picture quality than a rough VHS transfer,it has about 4 chapters,the audio volume changes throughout the movie and there are no extra features.

I viewed a DVD from a friend who purchased a copy of this film off ebay,unfortunately it was an obvious bootleg,however it is sad to say that the quality of THAT transfer was far superior to the commercial release...Hmmm,emkay.Makes no sense to me.

I guess my point is if you like the movie,buy the Amazon release,but if your expecting a quality DVD,don't.

This is one of my all time favorite "killer in the woods movies, and it is really a lost gem. The main characters are played by Darryl Hannah, Rachel Ward, and Joe Pantoliano! I can't believe more people haven't seen this film. It ranks up there with The Burning as one of those great early 80s teen horror movies with a big cast of actors who later went on to make it big in mainstream hollywood. Another cool thing is that the plot is not one of the those formulated slasher films that is completely predictable. There are actually some original ideas here!
The only thing that I found inexcusable is the DVD transfer quality. It is awful, worse than a VHS!! The sound is bad, the picture is blurry at parts and dark, just poorly done! The original movie is not like that. I originally watched this movie on VHS made by Vestron Video about 20 years ago and the picture and sound are fine. Shame on these jerks who manufactured this cheap knock-off DVD. This film deserves a deluxe treatment!! If they put out a good edition a lot more people would probably buy it.
But all in all, I would still recommend this film. The DVD is still worth 10 bucks if you don't mind poor picture quality, or just buy one of the VHS copies still floating around. Somebody will eventually reissue this film if it sells.
