Critic Reviews for The Final Girls
As horror comedies go, this one sadly winds up somewhere between Scary Movie 4 and 5.
"The Final Girls" is never once scary, the effects are schlocky, and the action/fight scenes are confusing, especially one that takes place in a dark shack where it is impossible to tell what is happening.
The Final Girls is all smiles and winks, but lacks the blood to make its horror satire pulse.
A playful deconstruction of the slasher film that ultimately packs a surprisingly affecting punch.
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.
Audience Reviews for The Final Girls
Amusing film-in-film horror comedy with a pretty fresh premise and good acting. Unfortunately, even within the movie's logic, not everything makes sense. You can see past that and have a decent time anyway, and there are some very fun ideas and insane camera angles. Other ideas are brushed over a little half-assed. Overall a decent attempt that could have turned into a classic with a little more care.
Delivering nonstop laughs, The Final Girls is a hilarious and witty horror-comedy. When the daughter of an '80s scream queen attends a screening of her mother's cult horror film "Camp Bloodbath," she ends up getting transported into the film. The script is incredibly well-written and does a great job at satirizing the tropes and clichés of '80s slasher films (particularly Friday the 13th). The film also really captures the look and feel of an '80s slasher. However, some of the performances are a little weak, and the setup that gets the daughter to the theater screening is a little clumsy. Still, The Final Girls is a lot of fun and a clever spoof of the genre.
