Synopsis


The Final Girls
At an anniversary screening of an '80s slasher film, a freak accident transports a group of girls back in time and into the movie -- sending them running for their lives from a machete-wielding madman. Taissa Farmiga, Malin Akerman, and Alia Shawkat star in this clever horror-comedy. ~ Daniel Gelb, Rovi

    ONE OF THE YEARS BEST

    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 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.

    I saw the trailer for this movie about 3 or so months ago, and I instantly fell in love with the movie. So much so, that the moment it came out on Blu Ray I went out and bought it, without reading reviews or seeing it prior. I just knew that it was going to be an awesome movie, and I was right. It has a stellar cast, with an amazing storyline and a very unique plot. I'm normally not a fan of comedy horror movies, but this was very well written and the actors did a fantastic job. Yes, this movie is worth buying and watching!

    Decent

    Solid enough flick, as long as you know what you are getting into. The '80s characters are fun throwbacks. Some of the sequences could have used better pacing (the final showdown stands out the most to me), but the comedy to horror balance was pretty decent for the most part. Video quality is about what you'd expect, with the outdoor scenes during the day at the camp faring the best. Audio is top notch, but the bonus features are a mixed bag; the commentaries could have used proper moderation to keep them more focused, and the deleted / extended scenes have little value to offer. The f/x features don't offer anything of particular value either, but it's nice to see such a robust special features package nonetheless.

    A TRUE Homage To 80's Slashers

    I really loved this movie. A true homage to 80's slashers among so many movies that "claim" to be "throwbacks" - this one finally gets it right. Elements of comedy are in the right places, good acting, good character development, good killer.....all good horrorific fun! Highly recommend seeing this movie!! (...and I'm not normally a fan of a lot of the newer films...especially ones that claim old school 80's style and then aren't...so I'm picky and I really loved this film!)

    One of 2015's Best Horror Comedy Offerings....

    I wasn't expecting much from this one....I've been fooled before with a great trailer (see the Gallows) and treated to a subpar movie. But this one, along with Cooties, is among the better Horror/Comedies 2015 had to offer. It has a ton of in-jokes, poking fun at 80's style slasher movies, while having an unexpected heart to the story. If you're a fan of John Dies at the End or Tucker and Dale and haven't already, give this one a shot...you won't be disappointed.

    "The Final Girls," while not the greatest horror-comedy film, is still highly entertaining for those familiar with all the genre tropes, especially the 80s slasher films. Very interesting tweak on the premise of watching a bad horror film--as the main characters are sucked into the bad movie itself. I was looking forward to seeing this since reading about it at Sundance 2015, and it did not disappoint.

    A rare find

    I find that Hollywood makes it's money off of boring sequals and terrible remakes. It's rare that you find something that is both new and enjoyable but this movie had it all. I find that a lot of the comedies nowdays are just trying to one up each other. They need to add more vulgarity and unnecessary F Bombs. This movie is the perfect example of what we need. It was funny and not too over the edge.

    A must for any slasher fan

    Really, any horror fan should see this film. It not only skewers the slasher genre, but pays homage to it. The only downside is the PG-13 rating (what's the point? It's going straight to video anyway) that could have been done away with to allow some funnier death scenes. But despite that, it turned out to be a fun movie, and I'm not sure I can think of much I would change.
