Abigail Breslin has rather quietly built herself quite an impressive horror resume. From Zombieland to Maggie she has been no stranger to the genre scene and this year will be another banner one for the young starlet. Of course she’s got a starring turn in the upcoming Fox series Scream Queens and out now is a project that is a bit of a twist on the standard slasher fare. It’s titled Final Girl and you can view it as we speak as it rolls out this weekend on VOD platforms everywhere. Sneak a peek at the trailer and see what you think.
Kind of a weird mash up of Funny Games and pretty much any slasher film ever made, right? It’s got my attention though. Here’s the official line from the studio:
FINAL GIRL follows a group of charismatic yet sadistic boys who every night, trick a young, blonde girl into meeting them for a date with the intention to hunt and kill her. However, their horrifying ritual takes a turn when they select the beautiful Veronica (Breslin) as their next victim. When the hunt begins, the boys soon realize they messed with the wrong girl.
FINAL GIRL is co-written by Stephen Scarlata, Alejandro Seri and Johnny Silver with a screenplay from Adam Prince.
Tyler Shields makes his directorial debut and has this to say about his baby:
“The idea behind FINAL GIRL was no CGI, no fake effects. I wanted it to be as real as could be,” he says. “The fights are real, the cold was real and therefore, the performances are real. It was certainly a challenge, but I think everyone in the movie will agree it was worth it.”
See, now you have something to watch this weekend – no need to thank me.
