Critic Reviews for The Final Girls

All Critics (72) | Top Critics (19)

The downfall of The Final Girls is that it pretty much becomes the tired thing it makes fun of. And it doesn't do much for thrills.

February 24, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Finally! A slasher movie with both brains and heart, both intact.

October 14, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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

October 9, 2015 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

"The Final Girls" is never once scary, the effects are schlocky, and the action/fight scenes are confusing, especially one that takes place in a dark shack where it is impossible to tell what is happening.

October 9, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

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

October 9, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

A playful deconstruction of the slasher film that ultimately packs a surprisingly affecting punch.

Audience Reviews for The Final Girls

Make a slasher movie that's about an R-rated slasher movie, then make that movie be PG-13? Solid weird ass choice. But whatever, The Final Girls is some proper fun.

Amusing film-in-film horror comedy with a pretty fresh premise and good acting. Unfortunately, even within the movie's logic, not everything makes sense. You can see past that and have a decent time anyway, and there are some very fun ideas and insane camera angles. Other ideas are brushed over a little half-assed. Overall a decent attempt that could have turned into a classic with a little more care.
