    WHY THE FINAL GIRL IS THE WORST THING FOR WOMEN IN HORROR

    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.

Throw the found-footage/POV angle into the mix, and well, the odds are almost against you from the get-go. Luckily, the Patrick Brice/Mark Duplass collaboration CREEP […]
