13 Films that Reinterpret the Final Girl

10 of 13


Cabin in the Woods


How awesome sauce is Cabin in the Woods? As an homage to horror movie tropes, this film is fantastic on so many levels. I could wax poetic on Cabin in the Woods for hours but we’re here to talk about final girls, and boy, does this film have a great one. Dana is clearly our final girl, she does everything a final girl is supposed to do, but ultimately, the film sacrifices her anyway. This is a final girl who survives everything that’s thrown at her until the very end when big bad demon comes out of the earth and kills everyone.
