'THE FINAL FIRLS'

'THE FINAL FIRLS':

I have heard some good things about THE FINAL GIRLS..

The film is a horror comedy, a slasher with laughs.. It’s directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson and written by M.A. Fortin and Joshua John Miller. The film stars Taissa Farmigaand Malin Åkerman in the two leading roles, with supporting performances from Adam DeVine, Thomas Middleditch, Alia Shawkat, Alexander Ludwig, Nina Dobrev, Chloe Bridges, andAngela Trimbur. The film follows Max, a young woman grieving the loss of her mother, a famous scream queen from the 1980s, who finds herself and friends pulled into the world of her mom’s most famous movie Camp Bloodbath. Reunited, the women and others must fight off the film’s maniacal killer.

It received a March 2015 film festival premiere and had a limited release on October 9 in the United States.. 

The film is even getting attention from the NEW YORK TIMES, showcasing some of the most important ‘final girls’ ever in horror, such as Jamie Lee Curtis in HALLOWEEN and Amy Steel in FRIDAY THE 13TH part 2

The TIMES also writes,



A game changer arrived in 1996, when the winking “Scream” featured an in-control final girl who knew what a final girl was. Time travel in the new film “The Final Girls” introduces two fresh twists: mother-daughter final girls and a tear-jerker ending.


Here is a fun website you may want to peruse a bit in free time: Stacie Ponder writes a blog called FINAL GIRL, which explores the way 70s and 80s slasher flicks led to a female hero at the movie’s end.. there’s also a TUMBLR.

The Great Mexico City Earthquake anniversary Earthquake

Thirty-two years to the day after an earthquake killed thousands of people in Mexico, a powerful quake rattled the country's central region Tuesday..



Again.. 32 years later. To the day..
Today across Mexico City, as people were prepping for earthquake drills and remembrances of what occurred then... and now today, what occurred in real time.
Videos of ground shaking.. buildings literally falling down.. NPR has this: "We don't have an estimate yet from authorities of how many buildings — but just photos and videos from people in the street show there are many buildings collapsed so far," reporter James Fredrick told NPR. "The civil protection agency of Mexico City has confirmed that they're beginning excavation work for people trapped inside collapsed buildings."
Another problem loosed by the quake: Gas leaks have been reported across the city, some of which have already resulted in fires, according to Fredrick.
"God bless the people of Mexico City,&qu…
