One of the films making a lot of noise at the SXSW festival this past weekend was a slasher throwback/comedy titled ‘The Final Girls’. The premise is actually pretty damn cool and goes like this:
“Max is a high school senior who is mysteriously transported with her friends into a 1980s horror film that starred Max’s celebrated scream queen mother. Trapped inside the movie, Max finds herself reunited with her mom, who she lost in real life. Together with Max’s friends, they must fend off the camp counselors’ raging hormones, battle a deranged machete-wielding killer and find a way to escape the movie and make it back home.”
Taissa Farmiga, Malin Akerman, Thomas Middleditch, Adam DeVine and Nina Dobrev all star and Todd Strauss-Schulson directs. Hopefully we’ll be getting some release details soon!
