The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

The Final Girls (2015)

Starring: Malin Akedrman, Taissa Farmiga, Adam Devine, Alia Shawkat, Thomas Middleditch,
Director: Todd Strauss-Schulson

After the death of her mother, who also happened to star in a cult slasher film, the mourning daughter reluctantly agrees to be part of a midnight screening. During the screening she and some friends happen to get sucked into the movie where they become part of the story

My Take:
First off, this is just a fun movie and is one of my favorites of the year. It has sharp dialog and plays up to the traditional slasher conventions while spoofing it at the same time. The cast plays along flawlessly too. There might be some gaps in logic but once in awhile the viewer just has to enjoy the ride.

Rating: So Good

Watched: Netflix DVD
