At last – a possibly creative and innovative addition to the teen-horror genre? The Final Girls stars Taissa Farmiga (of American Horror Story fame) and Nina Dobrev (of The Vampire Diaries fame), as well as a few other recognizable faces that will have teens packing the theater on opening weekend.
But it looks like this film might have a broader audience, based on the trailer. In the vein of Scream and The Cabin in the Woods, The Final Girls will seemingly exploit 80s horror tropes to make a cheesy and self-aware film. Do you agree? Watch the trailer and let us know below!
A young woman grieving the loss of her mother, a famous scream queen from the 1980s, finds herself pulled into the world of her mom’s most famous movie. Reunited, the women must fight off the film’s maniacal killer.
The Final Girls comes out on October 9th, 2015 – just in time for the Halloween season.
