THE FINAL GIRLS (2014)


2014's The Final Girls is #74 for the year. About to be released, this slasher movie spoof features Max (Taissa Farmiga, sister of Vera) and her friends going to a revival of Camp Bloodbath, the movie her late actor mom (Malin Ackerman) did many years ago when starting out. Somehow, this group, after a freak fire breaks out in the theater, ends up IN THE MOVIE!! And, knowing the plot of the film, deal with the cliches, the Jason Voorhees-like "Billy" in a very meta, extremely funny style. If you know anything about these kinds of movies as well as film stuff like flashbacks, graphics, credits, etc., you will really go for this. I sure did. Takes it a step further than Scream. Fun stuff and recommended. BTW, the "final girl" is the girl who survives at the end of the flick and kills the mad slasher.
