I've got a trailer here for a horror/comedy called The Final Girls, and the movie looks really freakin' good! I love it when movies mix horror and comedy together. It's not an easy task to pull off, but it looks like The Final Girls did an awesome job making it happen.
The movie was directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson, and as you'll see, it takes on the tropes of the slasher film genre, but also seems manage to incorporate the difficulty of dealing with trauma from a family tragedy. The trailer labels it "The Feel Good Horror Movie of the Year."
It also has a great cast that includes Taissa Farmiga, Malin Akerman, Nina Dobrev, Alexander Ludwig, Alia Shawkat, Thomas Middleditch, and Adam Devine. Here's a more detailed synopsis of what the story entails:
When Max (Farmiga) and her friends reluctantly attend a screening of Camp Bloodbath, an infamous ‘80s cult horror film that starred Max’s late mother (Akerman), they are accidentally sucked into the silver screen. They soon realize they’re trapped inside the movie and must team up with the horny, regan-era idiot “Camp Bloodbath” counselors — including Max’s mom as the shy scream queen — to battle the film’s machete-wielding killer, Billy Murphy. Face to face with her mother for the first time in years, Max has a second chance not only to see her, but to save her, and with the help of her friends, get back home before Billy kills them all.
The movie is set to be released just before Halloween on October 9th, and it's a film I'll definitely be checking out.
