This is right up my ally. I'm a massive horror fan, and when they're a touch on the cheesy side, I love 'em even more.
Well, The Final Girls looks like it takes cues from some of the greatest slightly cheesy horror movies of all time and puts a comical bent onto them, and then infuses them with my other love – television!
How are they doing that? By way of a very talented cast who have made names for themselves on the small screen, including American Horror Story's Taissa Farmiga, The Vampire Diaries' Nina Dobrev, Vikings' Alexander Ludwig, Malin Akerman from the hilarious (but canceled) Trophy Wife, as well as Alia Shawkat, Adam Devine, Angela Trimbur, Chloe Bridges and Thomas Middleditch.
In this film, the girls aren't going to sit around waiting to die, they're fighting back. They know their horror movies, after all. They've seen it all! That's happened before, of course, but there is something about the familiarity of this particular bunch that makes it look even better.
There isn't much about this trailer to complain about, and the film is coming out in theaters and VOD on Oct., 9, so both introverts and extroverts can see it on the same day. Score!
