The Final Girls — First Trailer

When it’s done well, as it was in Shaun of the Dead, Cabin in the Woods, and Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, horror comedy can be delightful, and from the early reviews, it seems as if The Final Girls will soon join that list.  It’s currently rated 100% “Fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes, and got great reviews from Variety and The Hollywood Reporter.

The cast has a lot of familiar faces, mainly from basic cable:   Taissa Farmiga from American Horror Story, Malin Åkerman from The Comeback, Adam DeVine from Workaholics, Nina Dobrev from The Vampire Diaries, etc.

And then there’s Alexander Ludwig from The Vikings, who a) appeared in the first Hunger Games movie, and b) made another movie besides The Final Girls in 2015.  It’s called Final Girl. (That’s not a misprint.)

And best of all there’s also Alia Shawkat, best known as Maeby Fünke in the classic television series Arrested Development.  (AD was to TV comedy what Breaking Bad was to TV drama.)

The film will be released in the US on 9 October 2015, and go straight-to-DVD in the UK on 12 October 2015.
