The Final Terror: Starts strong, fumbles, faceplants

The Final Terror otherwise known as Carnivore tells the story of a group who go out into the woods only to learn that danger lurks between the pines.

Truth be told though not exactly original the movie was interesting, the characters caught my attention and I expected something well above par.

Alas the longer the movie runs the more you realise that the creators had run out of ideas and it wanders into the realms of mediocrity building to a terrible finale.

The finale in fact is so bad I get understand for the life of me what they were thinking.

Starring a young Daryl Hannah and young-ish Joe Pantoliano this b-movie slasher effort is squandered potential and should have been better.

The Good:

Decent cast

General competence in filmmaking

The Bad:

Fizzles out

Terrible finale

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

When in a life or death situation a good tactic is getting high

This proves it, the African American guy doesn't have to die first!

Not stay true to the name

The Final Terror is the first feature movie by Andrew Davis and in term of a slasher movie it a very bad one.I can't really tell this movie is a jungle survival movie or a slasher movie when the kill count is so low to the point that in the final climax there still a bunch of people left.If a slasher movie bad i still can enjoy the kills but it take too long to get there and half of it off-screen kills.With the title like The Final Terror i still have hope for the movie will put out something like the infamous massacre scene in The Buring but no it end right there with the unsatisfied dead of the killer

Good alternative for sleeping pills

In the slasher flourish of the early '80s, which was helped no doubt by the success of Friday THE 13TH, countless manic killers were on the loose, in the woods, killing young teenagers. Some of these films were enjoyable (such as THE BURNING) but a lot of them were atrocious. Sadly, THE FINAL TERROR falls to the bottom of this scale, being one of the dullest films ever made - and that's saying something. Things are initially promising with the large group of kids going on their woodland holiday. By the time the credits roll, however, the body count has reached the grand total of... six. That's right, only six people snuff it in this film. And are any of the deaths the least bit gruesome or shocking? Sadly not. Hardly a drop of blood is spilled in this lame excuse for a film.

The influence from the first Friday THE 13TH film is clear (as is the painfully low budget), and DELIVERANCE is another influence upon the film, especially in the rafting scenes. The acting is all sub-standard (typical for a film of this type) and the clichéd teenagers (the group includes the stereotypical joker, the pretty girls, and the black guy, although surprisingly there is no fat guy along this time) spend their time doing clichéd things like smoking dope, having sex and dressing up like commandos (no, I don't know where they got the face paint from either). A couple of the girls also sport British accents for no explained reason except that they were probably friends of the producer. I bet Darryl Hannah isn't too proud having this film on her CV.

There are a couple of spooky moments involving bloodied animals in a dark hut, but the rest of the film is strictly mundane with an impossible amount of time being taken up by conversation. The one good moment involves a huge trap falling out of a tree at the end, this appears to have been a source of inspiration for a similar moment in PREDATOR. With little gore and nothing we haven't seen before, there seems to have been little reason to make this exploitation piece, apart from some atmosphere-building which, while is nice, never really goes anywhere except making you glad that you're not out in these cold, gloomy, damp woods, although the scenery and the isolated setting are effective at times. Samuel Z. Arkoff, still making cheap films thirty years after his '50s turnout, produces under the banner of Arkoff International Pictures as American International Pictures had given up the ghost by this time. One to be missed, unless you need an alternative to sleeping pills.
