Step aside, “Scream“.
A new horror comedy is making its way to the big screen soon and we think that it’s going to be awesome. Or at least according to what we’ve seen from its trailer so far.
With the onslaught of jump scares-filled horror movies and slasher films in Hollywood, “The Final Girls” is set to bring a breath of fresh air with its interesting yet hilarious story.
Directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson, the movie stars Taissa Farmiga, who is best known for starring in Ryan Murphy’s “American Horror Story” TV series, as a teenager named Max Cartwright. Farmiga stars alongside Malin Akerman, Alexander Ludwig, Nina Dobrev, Alia Shawkat, Thomas Middleditch, Adam DeVine, Angela Trimbur, Chloe Bridges, and Tory N. Thompson.
The plot mainly centres on Max, who is mysteriously transported with her high school friends into a 1980s horror film that starred her late mother Amanda (played by Malin Åkerman), a celebrated scream queen.
Trapped inside the movie, Max finds herself reuniting with her mom, whom she lost in real life. Together with her friends, they must fend off the camp counselors’ raging hormones and battle a deranged machete-wielding killer while finding a way to escape the movie and make it back home. However, with the body count rising in scene after iconic scene, who will be the final girls left standing and live to escape this film?

Based on a screenplay written by M.A. Fortin and Joshua John Miller, the movie is produced by Stage 6 Films and Vertical Entertainment.
“The Final Girls” is slated for release in theatres, on demand, and digital HD on 9th October 2015.
