*Spoilers ahead!* This is definitely one of my favorite horror films of all time. I think it’s a very interesting case study when it comes to looking at the final girl. In this, as with Alien: Resurrection, there is a doubling of the final girl, creating an interesting dynamic within the trope. Here we have two women, one fighting for her life and one believing she’s fighting for her life, both survive but who is the final girl? Some would argue that it is Alexia – who escapes the killer who offed her entire family, but Marie, too, could be considered a final girl as she believed she was fighting a killer who in reality, was the product of her split personality.
