‘Final Girl’ Horror Movie Tribute
With Halloween tomorrow, I’m sure you’ve watched a horror movie or two leading up to the holiday. There are many “stereotyped” characters in the genre, including the dumb blonde who falls when she runs, the first to die black, etc. One big stereotype in the genre is a role commonly known as “final girl.”
The “final girl” is the last female survivor who just happens to off the villain in the movie, somehow – and at least until the next sequel comes along.
You’ve seen Jamie Lee Curtis do this three times in the Halloween series, Neve Cambell do it a couple times in the scream movies, etc.
Vulture has compiled a video compilation to pay tribute to this women of horror. I hope you enjoy.
