New Line to Parade Around Some Final Girls

Here's a combination you don't see very often... Back to the Future meets Friday the 13th. Apparently that's exactly what we're going to get with New Line's latest horror comedy, Final Girls.

Dread Central's Final Girls: Amy Steel

Dread Central’s next final girl, Amy Steel, portrayed the lone surviving female in two horror films of the 80s. Her first role was as Ginny, the Camp Crystal Lake counselor with a background in psychology that helped her survive Jason Voorhees’ vengeful rampage in Friday the 13th Part 2.

Dread Central's Final Girls: Jill Schoelen

Dread Central’s next final girl, Jill Schoelen, was one of our busiest final girls working in the horror genre. The actress appeared in Wes Craven’s Chiller, The Stepfather, Curse 2: The Bite, The Phantom of the Opera, Popcorn, and When a Stranger Calls Back, firmly cementing her place as a beloved final girl of modern horror history.

Dread Central's Final Girls: Adrienne King

When a young actress named Adrienne King signed on for a small horror film called Friday the 13th, she had no idea that it would end up becoming one of the most successful independent films with a budget of around one million dollars and a gross of over 50 times that to date and that it would become one of the biggest franchises in Hollywood (spawning ten sequels including Freddy vs. Jason and one remake so far).

Dread Central's Final Girls: Meg Foster

When you think of final girls of the 80s, veteran actress Meg Foster may not immediately come to mind. But Foster, who was in both John Carpenter’s They Live and The Stepfather 2, is anything but your typical final girl.

Dread Central’s Final Girls: Kimberly Beck

For many genre fans, Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter was the ultimate sequel of the entire series. The Final Chapter was chock-full of great deaths and brought together a stellar ensemble cast including the now notable Crispin Glover and Corey Feldman and re-energized the franchise with a trip inside the mind of our favorite machete-wielding madman.

Dread Central Presents: The Horror Chick's Final Girls

There's nothing finer (and sexier) than that one woman in a movie who outlasts the unthinkable. The chick who stands up to the things that go bump in the night and isn't afraid to get a little red on her! Join us now as we celebrate these lovely ladies without whom horror would be nowhere.

Dread Central’s Final Girls: Caroline Williams

Caroline Williams made her mark in the horror genre very early in her career. Her first notable role came in 1985 with a small part in The Legend of Billie Jean. The very next year Williams took on Leatherface and the whole crazy Sawyer family in Tobe Hooper’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, which would forever endear her to the horror masses with her portrayal of final girl Venita “Stretch” Brock.

Dread Central's Final Girls: Lisa Wilcox

It takes a special final girl to take on Freddy Krueger twice and live to tell about it. Alice Johnson was exactly that girl. Brought to life by actress Lisa Wilcox in the fourth and fifth installments of the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, Alice was the only final girl in the series to survive the killer clutches of Robert Englund.
