When Max (Taissa Farmiga) and her friends reluctantly attend a tribute screening of an infamous '80s slasher film that starred Max's late mother (Malin Akerman), they are accidentally sucked into the silver screen. They soon realize they are trapped inside the cult classic movie and must team up with the fictional and ill-fated "Camp Bloodbath" counselors, including Max's mom as the shy scream queen, to battle the film's machete-wielding, masked killer. With the body count rising in scene after iconic scene, who will be THE FINAL GIRLS left standing and live to escape this film? Written by Vertical Entertainment

Billy kills Mimi by strangling her first then breaking her neck yet when Max and her friends encounter her corpse she is covered in blood which Duncan proceeds to taste to see if it is corn syrup or fake blood. It doesn't look like Billy did any further damage to her so there should be no blood. See more »

One part Friday the 13th, one part Last Action Hero. Bam, success.
12 October 2015 | by Finfrosk86See all my reviews

Yes! The Final Girls is real good. There, now go see it!

OK, then. I'll say some stuff.

The Final Girls is entertaining from the very first frame. Just a fun ride from start to finish. It is very well made, there is a ton of well known faces. (at least for most of us) The atmosphere is just aces! So good. So nice and cozy.

It's one part Friday the 13th, one part Last Action Hero, and that's a fun little mix I'll tell ya! It's a feel-good-slasher.

It's very visually appealing, and you really get the feeling that you are in a movie. Well, that they are in a movie. That you are in a movie in a movie, with them. You see what I'm saying?

And here is one thing that sets The Final Girls apart from a lot of other slashers and horror-comedies: It has heart. A good chunk too. And good acting.

There is this one scene in slo-mo - So cool! Just wanted to say it. No reason.

The only thing that could have made it better would be, of course, gore and blood. For some reason it's PG13, so we get little blood, no nudity and no swearing. But it still manages to be entertaining as hell, and that's saying something. (If we are real nice, maybe Santa will bring us an unrated version?)

So, do I have to say more now? Huh? Go watch it!
