The Girlfriend Experience "Blindsided" Review - AVClub

AVClub: Carol Clover coined the term “Final Girl” in the ‘70s to describe a certain trope she recognized in horror films, and more specifically in the increasingly popular subgenre of the slasher film. The Final Girl is the one character who eludes the killer and gets her revenge in the end. She’s the protagonist of the film, even if she isn’t established as such in the first section of the movie, and is the character with whom the audience empathizes. Whether it’s Laurie Strode in Halloween or Sally Hardesty in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, we first identify with the Final Girl and then cheer for her to provide a violent end to her foes.

The story is too old to be commented.
