Thursday Movie Picks - The Final Girl
This week's Halloween theme from Wandering Through The Shelves is the final girl! We love a queen that makes it until the end. Laurie, Sydney, Sally, Nancy, the icons are on a first name basis. Since I went with very popular picks last week, I'm going to try to avoid using those icons and use ones that I think deserve icon status alongside them
1) The Cabin in the Woods - Dana deserves final girl status for a variety of reasons. Not just because of the horror she survived, but because of her humility. She apologizes for almost shooting her friend to save the entire world while sharing a joint with him. We love someone who can admit they're wrong.
2) Ready or Not - Grace got the in-laws from Hell and came out on top in this hilarious horror-comedy. This film had no right being as good as it was.
3) Hush - I hate home invasion films. They make me very uncomfortable but Maddie, a deaf woman being terrorized by a crazed psycho felt fresh. It made me rethink my judgmental-ness on this type of movie ever so slightly.
