Final Exam is a 1981 American slasher film written and directed by Jimmy Huston. The film stars Cecile Bagdadi and Joel S. Rice, who respectively portray Courtney and Radish, the latter serving as partial inspiration for Randy Meeks (Jamie Kennedy) in Wes Craven's Scream (1996). The plot follows a nameless killer (Timothy L. Raynor) stalking the remaining group of students left on a college campus days before the university's summer vacation. Upon its theatrical release, the film was met to a middling critical reception, being both criticized and praised for similarities to Halloween (1978) and Friday the 13th (1980). While not prosecuted for obscenity, the film was seized and confiscated in the UK under Section 3 of the Obscene Publications Act 1959 during the video nasty panic. The film has received a modern reevaluation by critics for the arbitrary villain and its focus on character development rather than gore and shock value. ()
