Queens of the Damned: A Horror Podcast

Ep. 22: Final Girls

August 21, 2017

In this week's episode, Nikki, Rachel, and Maranda discuss how the final girl trope has affected the horror genre. Rachel opens up with the episode with a discussion of Men, Women, and Chainsaws by Carol J. Clover and how the term "final girl" was coined. The ladies then discuss their favorite final girls, ranging from classics to the 2000s, and how they either fit or don't fit the final girl trope. The conversation bounces around a bit as the ladies examine the overall representation of women in film and how this affects reality.
