If your an 80's Horror/Slasher FanBoy like myself then this film is for you. Clever nods to the audience, tongue n cheek, self aware/meta humour is in full force. Think the wit and humour of Scream blended together with Friday the 13th, plus some surprisingly emotional depth. Loved it! I cannot fathom why this did not get a cinema release, it is absolutely brilliant. A clever, knowing, though never self mocking homage to 80s slasher flicks. The cast are uniformly brilliant and great to see Nina Dobrev in something other than the Vampire Diaries. If you love Scream and the self <more>
referential horror you are sure to enjoy this. Give it a try, this will go down as another of those hidden gems that COME ALIVE on DVD, rather like 'Trick R Treat.' Neglected and ignored when in fact it is sheer brilliance and really quite moving. Lovely commentary too!
"The Final Girl" Like the best films of David Lynch or the French New Wave. Here is a very specific kind of camp classic slasher films. Over the top acting & Buckets upon buckets of blood. It's all a lot of fun to watch if done in a properly. The every person here has a very strong sense of character and movie writers with M.A. Fortin and Joshua John Miller capitalize on that.The film is still a good time. The large ensemble cast are all great and every one is given many moments to shine the movie. They serve a specific character comedy & drama very well. It is not the <more>
top of the line genre-playing it could have been, like a Shaun of the Dead. But it is perfectly pleasant time in the theater. When i saw The Final Girl movie, The best horror and drama movie.
Classic. This word describes this movie. It is chalk-full of tributes to the beauty of old slasher films in particular Friday the 13th as well as a self aware spoof.The basic premise is, a group of friends go to see an old slasher film starring the main girl's deceased mother. At said screening, an accident leads to the group being sucked into the horror movie, Camp Bloodbath. The initial plan of the group is to let the movie play out, and stick with the girl who eventually kills the killer, Billy. Obviously said plan does not work out and they then just try to survive until the end of <more>
the movie.Now this is a spoof done right. While it is primarily a spoof of Friday the 13th, it contains many elements from other classic horror movies. The entire initial plan of the group in itself is to stick with the virgin because everybody who has sex in a horror movie gets killed. Another way this movie spoofs classic horror movies is that it basically rips a character straight out of Scream in Duncan, almost the exact same character as Randy. Past this, the ways that the seemingly dead killer comes back to life, the jump scare through a window, seemingly invincible killer and when the characters physically point out clichés such as slow-motion and black and white flashbacks.Beyond the star power in the casting with big names like Malin Akerman, Nina Dobrev and comedy heavy-weight Adam DeVine, the acting still holds up. The special affects aren't a huge part of the movie, however they are good when used. The scripting and screenplay are absolutely unreal and certainly deserve accolades.Overall, this movie gets a must watch label for anybody who is a fan of horror or comedy and is an overall enjoyable experience for anybody.
best script since Pulp Fiction (by A_Different_Drummer)
Reviewers Notes: 1. Prior to 1994, Quentin Tarantino was actually known as ... wait for it ... Quentin Tarantino. The event that transformed him into a film icon to be forever known simply as "QT" was of course Pulp Fiction. The record will show, members of the jury, that Pulp was not necessarily the best acted or best produced film at the time but what it had was the best script of the era, a script so sharp you could cut yourself merely by watching the film. Scripts that good, scripts written by insiders for outsiders wanting to feel like insiders, are rare. So rare they appear <more>
about once a decade. And this is the sharp script of the present era.2. Once you grasp that the unfettered joy in watching this film is all about the script, you will appreciate that the performance of Taissa Farmiga is simply an unexpected bonus. Every film needs "glue" to keep both the characters and the audience grounded, and here she is the glue. But she is great glue. She has a sort of "inner glow" a la early Rachel McAdams and also a chameleon-like quality which keeps the audience interested.3. The rest of the cast is great, but really this excellent film is a showcase for the Fortin/Miller screenplay and the constantly innovative direction of Todd Strauss-Schulson. Highly recommended.
A great homage to 80s slasher films...don't be alarmed by its PG-13 rating (by jasonlecter)
The 80's slasher flicks are loved by horror fans more than any other sub-genre of horror because they were fun. What made them fun ? The inventive kills, the over the top bad dialogue, the campy mood, the silly acting, the music, the legendary killer, the gore , and the nudity. So can a PG-13 film successful spoof 80s slasher convention ? This film is proof that it can. You just have to realize that this is not a movie that pays homage to slasher films by recreating the same kind of film. Its a spoof of the silliness of 80s horror. The characters are all likable, and all the actors are <more>
well cast. The story line is very clever. And while it may not be the first movie to deconstruct and bend horror film rules, it is one of the best. Watch it in the right mindset and you will not be disappointed especially if your a fan of 80's slasher horror. Do not go in to this one expecting lots of gore and nudity, and you are in for a wicked surprise.
I didn't expect all too much from this movie but I really wanted to see it because I love Taissa Farmiga and Malin Akerman. I have to say that THE FINAL GIRLS was a great surprise. It is a superb horror parody but also a really ambitious homage to the great slasher movies of the 1980s. Nothing in this movie is too over the top. It is not really a straight-out comedy although it has many funny moments. The movie also gets pretty deep at times with some unexpectedly dramatic scenes with Taissa's and Malin's characters. I liked that. THE FINAL GIRLS is a respectful tribute to <more>
everything we love about '80s slashers. I especially liked the final minutes with the fantastic, visually striking showdown and the obligatory open ending which was very well staged . Kudos to director Todd Strauss-Schulson for creating a movie like this. By the way, Gregory James Jenkins' score is amazing and makes the movie even better for me!
A satirical meta-slasher with a surprising amount of heart. (by lnvicta)
The Final Girls may appear to be another stupid campy horror spoof a la Scary Movie but rest assured, it's not. It's most comparable to The Cabin in the Woods, but while that movie deconstructed horror as a whole, The Final Girls' focus is specifically on slashers. It's about a slasher movie star and her daughter who get into a fatal car accident. The daughter survives and years later, her and her friends go to see the slasher movie her mother starred in, then something happens in the theater and somehow the group ends up in the film they were watching. It may sound dumb but <more>
all disbelief can easily be suspended due to the smooth transitions, clever dialogue, great acting, and characters you actually care about.Once they enter the "movie" world, it's simply a blast to watch. Slasher tropes are pointed out, made fun of, and even implemented well when necessary. The virgin girl is the only one who can kill the killer and it must be with his own machete. Sound familiar? Also, anyone who has sex ends up getting killed. Yeah, it's Friday the 13th all over again, except with a new cast. Every character has a personality and has their place in the movie. There's the jock douche, the slutty space cadet, the innocent shy girl, the hipster, you name it. They all work perfectly together, and it's hard to single out one actor as a highlight because the acting throughout is highly impressive for a horror movie. Mainly the two female leads Max and her mom have tangible chemistry and some truly heartfelt moments.So is The Final Girls scary? Not exactly, but does have some badass shots like the killer jumping out of a window in slo-mo while he and his machete are on fire, and someone actually dies by falling face first into a bear trap. Ouch. More importantly though, The Final Girls is funny without being dumb. It's clever humor, and it works around the plot so you have fun while being totally invested in the story. The most surprising thing about this movie is the amount of heart it has. Rarely do tearful personal conversations work in slashers, but here they make up some of the most powerful scenes. Simply put, The Final Girls is an adventure, and for any meta-horror comedy fans, it's one you should not miss.
A spoof of the slasher genre, and a love letter to its absurdity. (by BrentHankins)
The combination of horror and comedy is always a volatile recipe, and the failure to mix those ingredients just right can often result in disaster. But every once in awhile, a film comes along that manages to stumble upon the secret formula for success, with Cabin in the Woods being the most recent example. Now, three years after that film blew the roof off the Paramount Theater at the SXSW Film Festival, we have another SXSW debut that premiered to a cacophonous ovation: director Todd Strauss-Schulson's The Final Girls.Max Cartwright Taissa Farmiga is struggling with loss after the <more>
tragic death of her mother, 80s slasher flick icon Amanda Cartwright Malin Akerman . When she attends an anniversary screening of her mom's landmark film, Camp Bloodbath, a freak accident transports Max and her friends Alia Shawkat, Alexander Ludwig, Thomas Middleditch and Nina Dobrev into the film itself, where they're forced to abide by the rules of the movie's narrative in an attempt to survive. Of course, everyone knows that anyone who has sex in an 80s horror film is bound to be butchered shortly after, so Max finds herself in the awkward position of trying to convince her mother's character not to sleep with the cocky, swaggering Kurt Adam Devine , whose dialogue is almost entirely made up of sexual innuendo. Meanwhile, the attractive but vapid Tina Angela Trimbur is constantly trying to disrobe, which is a big no-no in this film, since a pair of bare breasts will bring the masked killer and his machete running.Fans of the Friday the 13th or Sleepaway Camp series will find plenty to love here as the film gleefully pokes fun at genre tropes, and much of the fun comes from the fact that Max and her friends aren't just living in the world of the film - they're living in the actual film, complete with voiceovers, on screen credits, and flashbacks. There are so many hilarious moments that the film practically begs for repeated viewings, as audiences are bound to be laughing so hard that they'll miss some of the rapid-fire humor.There are a few times when The Final Girls gets a little too stylish, such as poorly rendered early scene that involves a bottle of vodka rolling across the floor of a crowded theater, and there are a few moments where the film seems to forsake its own rules in favor of an extra laugh. But these are minor complaints, and the audience at the Paramount Theater certainly didn't allow these nitpicks to detract from the overall experience. The Final Girls is an immensely fun experience that finds a great balance between being a spoof of the genre, and a love letter to its absurdity.
I am fresh off of watching this and wow, this was a lot of fun. I was afraid that this was going to turn out like every other recent film with a young cast and be riddled with MTV type clichés but it wasn't at all. The cast was great and film as a whole was pretty funny and brutal for a PG-13 Film .The premise was great and original, they really came up with a clever way to spoof the 80's slasher genre. The sub plot was even well done and made for some fairly emotional scenes. The film worked on all levels and was blast to watch. I really enjoyed itIt's weird but when I really <more>
like a film I find it hard to say a whole lot about it. When I hate a film I can shoot out four or five paragraphs no problem, but I enjoyed this film so much that I am finding it hard to come up with much to say. Just watch it.8/10
