With “Scream” about to wrap it’s first season on MTV, and “Scream Queens” about to air on FOX, it’s only natural for a film to follow suit in the meta horror comedy genre. While in the television shows the characters are aware they are living a horror life, “The Final Girls” takes a bit of a turn and actually puts its characters inside a horror film.
“The Final Girls,” follows Max Cartwright (Taissa Farmiga) as her and her friends are mysteriously transported into the 80s slasher film, “Camp Bloodbath.” Starring in the film is none other than her mother, Amanda Cartwright (Malin Akerman), who passed away three years prior. As the group, which includes Nina Dobrev, Alexander Ludwig, Alia Shawkat and Thomas Middleditch, navigate through the film to stay alive, Max struggles with the pain of losing her mother. The film also stars Chloe Bridges and Adam Devine.
“The Finals Girls” will be released in theaters, On Demand, and on Digital HD October 9th.
