Turning the table on high-school douchebaggery.

A few weeks ago we reported on the trailer for Final Girlstarring Abigail Breslin as “Veronica, the new girl in school. She’s shy and vulnerable, the perfect target for a group of teenage boys who lure girls into the woods to hunt and kill them for sport. It’s only after they get her alone that she turns the tables on them, escaping and revealing she’s armed and knows how to defend herself…”

Below is a clip showing her drugging the boys that try to kill her. Check it out below.

It’s nice to see more roles of empowered women in horror, and not have them continued to be portrayed as the stupid, clumsy trope we often find in slasher films.

Final Girl is released August 14th.
