Final Exam

1981, Jimmy Huston


Final Exam is a 1981 American slasher film written and directed by Jimmy Huston, and starring Cecile Bagdadi, Joel S. Rice, and DeAnna Robbins. The plot follows a nameless killer stalking the remaining group of students left on a college campus days before the beginning of summer vacation.

Filmed in North Carolina and South Carolina with a cast of largely Los Angeles-based actors, Final Exam was released by Motion Picture Marketing in the winter of 1981. The film was met with a middling critical response, being both criticized and praised for similarities to Halloween (1978) and Friday the 13th (1980). The campus filming locations included Limestone University (Gaffney, South Carolina) and Gardner-Webb University (Boiling Springs, North Carolina).
