In 2011, I was walking around the convention floor at the Cinema Wasteland Movie and Memorabilia Expo when I spotted a huge advertisement out of the corner of my eye.  A beautiful brunette woman was lifting her shirt to expose her underboob while curled closely to an eye-patched man clad in black and pointing a […]

Whenever I discuss the problems of female representation in horror films, I’m almost immediately bombarded with cries of, “BUT WHAT ABOUT THE FINAL GIRL!?”  Ah, yes, the final girl.  By Carol J. Clover (Men, Women, & Chainsaws: Gender in the Modern Horror Film)’s definition, the final girl is described as “a trope in thriller and […]
