Grab your popcorn — ‘The Final Girls’ is going to be EPIC! The horror-comedy flick, starring Nina Dobrev and Taissa Farmiga, is coming our way just in time for Halloween and it looks bloody amazing! Watch the trailer here.
The Finals Girls might just be our new favorite horror movie! The campy flick takes a unique twist on the slasher genre, and the trailer shows just how well that’s done. With incredible performances from leading ladies Taissa Farmiga, 21, and Nina Dobrev, 26, this is sure going to be one epic movie!
The trailer begins with Max (Taissa) in the movie theater with her friends for the anniversary screening of Camp Bloodbath, an ’80s horror film that her late mother starred in. Well, when the theater begins to burn down, Max and her friends find themselves in the slasher movie — with Max’s scream queen mom herself! Sadly, Max’s mom doesn’t seem to know her, and it’s heartbreaking when Max holds back tears.
We next see all sorts of freaky things happen, including the villain who kills people he has sex with, along with black and white flashbacks. Once the friends figure out they’re trapped in the film, they realize that movies like this end only end when the final girl kills the bad guy. Nina is sure ready to put up a fight, as she has the best line of the trailer: “I want chainsaws and big a** knives and I want them now!” It looks like a huge fight goes down, but will the friends actually escape the film? Will Max save her mother? So many questions!
The film also stars Adam DeVine, Malin Akerman, Alexander Ludwig and Thomas Middleditch. The Final Girls debuts in theaters on Oct. 9.
