The One That Got Away – Final Girls

We love final girls.

There’s nothing better than having the main character that you’re rooting for, make it all the way to the end! She can suffer again in the sequel, no doubt and hopefully at the end of the series, make it out alive!


Member Kira wrote The Horror Movie Survival Guide for the Discerning Final Girl and it’s one of my favorite posts ever. There are certain rules that one must abide by in order to survive. Like no sex or being curious allowed…if you want to survive. If you haven’t checked it out yet, you should. Because well, it very much could save your life one day.

Anywho, imagine my glee when I came across Gentry Boeckel‘s Final Girl Infographic. It’s too good and has some of my absolute favorites. Without further ado, I give you The One That Got Away, Horror Movie Final Girls Through The Ages.

I really tried to squeeze this in last month since it was Women in Horror Month BUT I wasn’t able to. So alas, here you go. It’s always a good day to celebrate your final girls!



Which final girl is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below. And thanks for sharing Gentry!
