The Final Girls

This came out back in 2015, but I had never heard of it — I came across it only because I was looking through lists of the better slasher movies to have come out in recent years (my wife was in the mood to watch one). I really enjoyed this for what it is, a super meta take on the slasher genre, which it does by taking the piss out of it all. This is definitely a comedy more than anything else (you barely even see any gore), but at the same time it’s a love letter to the genre, specifically of the Friday the 13th/Sleepaway Camp variety. I’m surprised I didn’t know about it, but I’m very glad I got to see it, as we both had a lot of fun watching it. Definitely worth checking out if you’re a fan of the genre, or even just horror in general.
