When Max (Taissa Farmiga) and her friends reluctantly attend a screening of “Camp Bloodbath,” an infamous ‘80s cult horror film that starred Max’s late mother (Malin Akerman), they are accidentally sucked into the silver screen. They soon realize they’re trapped inside the movie and must team up with the horny, Reagan-era idiot “Camp bloodbath” counselors – including Max’s mom as the shy scream queen – to battle the film’s machete-wielding killer Billy Murphy. Face to face with her mother for the first time in years, Max has a second chance not only to see her, but to save her, and with the help of her friends, get back home before Billy kills them all. Also starring Adam DeVine, Thomas Middleditch, Alia Shawkat, Angela Trimbur, with Alexander Ludwig and Nina Dobrev.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: The Final Girls offers an affectionate nod to slasher tropes while adding a surprising layer of genuine emotion to go with the meta amusement.

As horror comedies go, this one sadly winds up somewhere between Scary Movie 4 and 5.

The Final Girls is all smiles and winks, but lacks the blood to make its horror satire pulse.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Final Girls is a comical spoof of horror movies, with modern characters "stuck" inside a slasher movie from the 1980s. Expect a few gory and/or shocking slasher-movie moments, but compared to "pure" slasher movies, it's fairly mild. Characters also fight with machetes, and there are some explosions and a fire. Sexual innuendo is strong, but it's usually intended to be funny. A Playboy magazine is shown, and characters are definitely talking and thinking about sex (including discussion of who is and isn't a virgin). Language isn't especially frequent but does include uses of "s--t" and "bitch." Characters take the drug Adderall, and there's some cigarette smoking and drinking (beer and vodka). The movie is clever and funny, as well as surprisingly touching, as the main character learns to let go of a lost loved one.
