Final Girl / The Final Girls

Two movies based on the same trope!

Final Girl is a “serious” horror-thriller starring Abigail Breslin and Wes Bentley.

A man teaches a young woman how to become a complete weapon. Later she is approached by a group of sadistic teens who kill blonde women for unknown reasons. The hunting season begins.

The Final Girls is a comedy-horror starring Taissa Farmiga and Malin Akerman.

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 latter seems to be getting some positive buzz. The former, not so much.

The former is awful. Poor little Abigail Breslin.
