“The Final Girls” charmed the pants off of me. While I’ve seen everyone and their mother tackle the slasher films of the 70s, 80s and early 90s…few have done it with such feeling. Taissa Farmiga headlines the cast, as a teenage girl who misses her slasher star mother after she dies in a fatal car crash. While attending a revival screening of her mother’s signature film, a fire is sparked and Farmiga and company magically hops into the slasher film to escape.
What results is a fun mix of mature humor, strip teases, a quality full frontal boob shot and lovely machete impaling. Everyone gets the material, but it’s the relationship between Taissa Farmiga and Malin Akerman that keeps the film alive. Everything in the film happens for a purpose, as this delightful cast of young talent makes you believe in a never-ending world of compassion and horribly burned maniacs that never seem to die. If you haven’t watched it yet, pick it up.
