In the 2015 horror-comedy film, "The Final Girls," Taissa Farmiga plays Max, a teenage girl who is grieving the loss of her mother, Amanda (Malin Akerman), a former B-movie actress. While attending a screening of Amanda's most famous film, "Camp Bloodbath," Max and her friends find themselves transported into the movie itself. They become part of the on-screen action, and must find a way to survive the machete-wielding killer, Billy Murphy (Dan B. Norris).

As they navigate the world of the movie, Max and her friends are forced to confront their own fears and insecurities. They also discover new sides to their loved ones, including Amanda, who is no longer the distant figure Max remembers, but a warm and vibrant person.

Adam Devine co-stars as Kurt, the obnoxious jock who serves as comic relief throughout the film. Together, Max and Kurt lead the group through the dangers of the movie, facing not only the killer, but also the limitations of a genre that can be predictable and limiting.

"The Final Girls" is a meta-commentary on horror films, poking fun at the cliches and tropes that have become so prevalent in the genre. But it is also a heartfelt exploration of grief and coming to terms with loss. Taissa Farmiga gives a poignant performance as Max, showcasing her range as an actress. Malin Akerman is also excellent as Amanda, displaying a depth and vulnerability that is not always present in horror films.

The film is directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson, who brings a distinctive visual style to the movie-within-a-movie concept. The use of color and framing creates a dream-like quality to the scenes, blurring the lines between reality and fantasy. The soundtrack, which includes classic 80s hits like "Bette Davis Eyes" and "Dance Hall Days," adds to the overall mood of nostalgia and whimsy.

Overall, "The Final Girls" is a fun and inventive take on the horror genre. It manages to be both scary and funny, while also exploring deeper themes of loss and trauma. With a talented cast and creative direction, it stands out as a memorable entry in the world of horror cinema.

The Final Girls is an inventive horror-comedy critique that is not to be missed.

The Final Girls is a 2015 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 28 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.5 and a MetaScore of 59.
