More Info:
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    A playful deconstruction of the slasher film that ultimately packs a surprisingly affecting punch.

  • Neil Genzlinger

    A horror comedy that proves that with the right actors you can make an amusing movie even if a lot of your ideas are borrowed.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Todd Strauss-Schulson’s meta send-up of ’80s sex-equals-death slasher movies keeps its goofy good humor throughout, and tosses in a little almost-genuine feeling into the mix for good measure.

    The heart of this mostly bloodless picture is Max's relationship with her mother's film character, and there are some genuinely touching moments about grieving and the acceptance of loss.

  • Steve Davis

    Both Farmiga and Akerman emotionally connect in the film, which culminates in an ultimate act of maternal sacrifice more moving than you might imagine. Finally! A slasher movie with both brains and heart, both intact.

    Simultaneously violent and droll, The Final Girls is a way to have your blood-soaked cake and eat it, too.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Kenji Fujishima

    It lobs a grenade at slasher-movie sadism by making us care about the characters as more than just body-bag fodder.

  • Justin Lowe

    Strauss-Schulson brings an appropriately wacky comedic style to The Final Girls. Co-writers M.A. Fortin and Joshua John Miller have shamelessly raided the horror-movie canon, efficiently repurposing familiar references to amusing effect, without neglecting nods to Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street and similar fare.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Dennis Harvey

    The concept carries The Final Girls cheerfully past some dry stretches, and the actors are clearly enjoying themselves, with Farmiga the only representative of humorlessness in what is admittedly the sole sincerity-load-bearing role.

    Variety Full Review
  • Jesse Hassenger

    This makes The Final Girls an odd concoction: a semi-crude and not especially scary horror-comedy with some real emotional depth.

  • Ken Guidry

    Not every joke lands and it’s not as consistently funny as it could have been, but at its best, The Final Girls evokes the offbeat silliness of David Wain’s parody films like “Wet Hot American Summer” and “They Came Together."

  • Sheila O'Malley

    It's more of an affectionate spoof on 1980's "summer camp" slasher films. Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    As horror comedies go, this one sadly winds up somewhere between Scary Movie 4 and 5.
