Todd Strauss-Schulson's The Final Girls is one of my favorite movies I've seen this year. I had a chance to review it at the Los Angeles Film Festival, and its mixture of genuinely heartfelt, emotional moments and classic horror movie scares makes it a must-see, both for horror aficionados and non-horror lovers alike. (My wife isn't a fan of horror films, but she loved this.)
The film will hit theaters and VOD on October 9th, and now Stage 6 Films and Vertical Entertainment have released a new poster, which, like the movie itself, is a cool throwback to classic slasher films as seen through a slightly different lens. Check out the synopsis and trailer below:
The Final Girls is an unconventional comedy about Max, a high school senior, who is mysteriously transported with her friends into a 1980s horror film that starred Max’s mother, a celebrated scream queen. Trapped inside the movie, Max finds herself reunited with her mom, who she lost in real life. Together with Max’s friends, they must fend off the camp counselors’ raging hormones, battle a deranged machete-wielding killer and find a way to escape the movie and make it back home.
