Weather Terror - The Final Terror - Netflix
The Final Terror (also known as Carnivore, and internationally Campsite Massacre) is a 1983 American horror film directed by Andrew Davis, and starring Rachel Ward, Daryl Hannah, Adrian Zmed, and Joe Pantoliano. The film originally went through many working titles such as The Creeper, Three Blind Mice, and The Forest Primeval, but during production it was filmed under the title Bump in the Night before ultimately being released as The Final Terror. The plot follows a group of forest rangers camping in the Northern California wilderness who find themselves fighting for their lives against a backwoods feral killer hunting them as prey. It blends elements of survival thrillers and slasher films. The film was shot on location in 1981 in the Redwood forests, and was not released for two years due to the production searching for a distributor. It was eventually released in 1983 to capitalize on the rising fame of its young stars (namely Ward, Hannah, and Zmed), and co-stars Pantoliano in one of his early roles. In recent years, the film has developed a small following.

AllMovie gave a 2.5 rating, citing the film as “mediocre” and recommending “worth watching more for its cast than for its cliched story”. Joe Yandrick of Diabolique Magazine gave the film 3/5 stars. While he praised the direction, score, and acting (particularly Pantoliano and Friedrich), he criticized the pacing and the lack of originality within the story. He mentions the ending's reveal as “unpredictable”, but also felt “cheapened” the whole film. Overall, he concluded that the film was “a fun, but flawed attempt to capitalize on the growing slasher market.”
