Women are typically the sole survivors in Horror movies, they are known as the Final Girls. A spoof movie was made in 2015 starring Taissa Farmiga, which explains what a Final Girl is. So what is a Final Girl? They are usually virginal, goody two shoes who end up facing off against the machete wielding maniac in the final scenes.
Some of the more famous Final Girls are Scream Queen Jamie Lee Curtis in Halloween, Heather Langenkamp in Nightmare on Elm Street and a whole host of ladies in the Friday the 13th franchise. So how do you become a Final Girl?
You can't have a sex.
You can't drink or do drugs
You have the common sense not to investigate strange noises in your underwear.
By forgoing all this you get rewarded with a fight to the death with a crazed killer. Sounds like fun, right?
You can check out The Final Girls on Netflix now.
