The Final (2010)

A horror drama, written and directed by Jason Kabalati and Joey Stewart respectively.

Emily, Jack, Ravi, Andy, and Dane are a group of students who are getting bullied continuously and also are outcasts among the students. Some of them are also having issues with their families.

There is only one popular kid, Kurtis who is friendly with the group and he invites them to a video shooting event in his place along with the popular kids. There they pick a fight against Ravi and break his camera.

The outcasts decide to take revenge on the bullies and they organize a costume party inviting all the popular kids who used to bully them and as a favor to Kurtis they spare him. On the day of the party, the group is dressed as horror movie characters and gets the bullies on drugs, chains them, and tortures them tremendously without leaving a clue.

The movie gives a very important message on child bullying and how the rage that gets built on their mind with time, changes an innocent individual to a revengeful person.
