The "guards" in the woods are actually 3 other outcasts from school (seen on the school stairs and in the cafeteria). They are not the same outcasts as the ones in the party house, even though they are wearing the same costumes. This was meant to confuse the police when it was all over. Due to time constraints, this subplot was cut from the film, and is only subtly explained. See more »
I was apprehensive when I approached The Final, choice cut of Afterdark Horrorfest 2010. Any movie portraying school related violence runs the risk of offending many, but The Final, crafted with this in mind, scores a home-run by walking the tightrope and putting on a class act.
The main characters were anti-heroes, to be sympathized with, but certainly not to be admired (even by the most disturbed of movie goers). I personally appreciated the well crafted chemistry among the villains. The violence was well orchestrated as well. The film relied more on suspense than gore, something to be admired in a horror film these days.
Overall, The Final proved to a highly entertaining piece, while delivering some serious catharsis when the credits rolled to those of us who feared offense. It's not perfect in all its areas, but it was the best of the Horrorfest, as far as I'm concerned.
