‘The Final Girls’ Movie Summary
While Max Cartwright waits in her car for her mother, Amanda, to return from an audition, she watches a movie trailer on her phone. The film is a 1986 slasher called Camp Bloodbath which Amanda starred in back in the day. While the movie is now a cult classic, Amanda has trouble finding new roles because she’s been typecast as the scream queen named Nancy from Camp Bloodbath. As the two drive home from the audition, a car hits them, and kills Amanda, dead.
Fast forward three years, and Max now lives with her Aunt. She meets her BFF, Gertie, and a boy named Chris, whom she’s smitten with, at a diner to study the Classics. Gertie’s annoying stepbrother, Duncan, pops in, and interrupts the trio. He’s a huge horror fan, and he asks Max to go to the night’s double feature at the local theater of Camp Bloodbath and its sequel, Camp Bloodbath 2: Cruel Summer. Since it’s the anniversary of her mother’s death, she reluctantly agrees to attend.
Later that night at the theater, Chris shows up to join Max and Gertie…and to share his popcorn covered in M&Ms. While Max’s happy Chris came, she’s unhappy that Chris’ ex-girlfriend, Vicki, shows up as well. Vickie and Max were once BFFs too, but they drifted apart shortly after Amanda’s death.Read the Full Summary
